Senior Championship Results and Statistics

Well done to everyone who took part in this year’s championships! We had 182 entries competing in 243 matches over the fortnight. In those 243 matches we had 513 sets and 4557 games! The “Ringrose v Kelly” Mixed Doubles 1st round was the longest match and can account for 37 of those games, 18 of which came in just 1 set as they decided to test each others endurance by playing the 3rd set without a tie-break. A close second was Lar Ging and Kevin O’Conner’s epic Over 50’s encounter; there is no official time for this match but sources claim it went past the 3 hours mark.
