Halton excel in National Premier League of Doubles 2018

Halton have had an excellent first year in the National Premier League of doubles where winners of each region go through to a finals with 16 teams from all over the UK competing.

Over the year, the Halton team consisted of Roy Knight, Gavin McKinlay, Ed Taylor, Alex Barnes, Christian Colvin, Oscar Glenister and Calum McKinlay with Roy, Gavin, Alex and Ed making up the team for the national finals.

This year's standard was very high high, Marcus Willis played for the winning team, Jonny Marray played last year and Ed and Alex coming up against Dan Cox!

In the finals (qualifying through a regional play-off) Halton drew 2-2 with Thongsbridge, with Roy and Ed narrowly losing in a tiebreak shootout.  However Roy and Ed came back to win a shootout against Lincoln and had Lincoln won their shootout against Thongsbridge, Halton would have gone through on a count-back but Thongsbridge came through in the end.

It was a superb effort for the boys to come so close in our first year in the competition.

A special mention to Roy and Gavin who came through the whole competition with a 100% record (pictured below)
