Congratulations to all the 2021 English Nationals medal winners
There were 237 competitors taking part Friday-Sunday. 33 events and 152 medals awarded at the English Nationals sponsored by Franklin Pickleball.
We had two triple crown winners at the weekend, which means the players won singles, doubles and mixed doubles events. Thaddea Lock repeated her triple from the 2019 English OPEN at the 19+ highest level. Thaddea also won the fun split age event on Friday afternoon, so technically, she got the quadruple crown!
22 year old Alex Jeffries won all 3 events he played in and it was his first tournament! Alex didn’t have a partner for mixed doubles so played in the ‘Too hot to handle’ event for men without partners. Each player played with and against the other players and the players results and points were used to identify Gold, Silver and Bronze positions.
There were other players that medalled in multiple events – see how many you can spot below.
Big thank you to Paul Currie for the great pictures he took of the medallists and the players in action – you can see the gallery of pictures here.
FRIDAY 13th August 2021 - Singles Day!
Nothing unlucky about Friday the 13th for these winners!
