About the Doubles League

The NW has a thriving Doubles League with 9 guaranteed divisions sometimes more!

You sign up for the Doubles League and then based on the attendees and prior results, the players are assigned to a division.

Elaine manages the session and based on attendance will assign players to a court to ensure that skill is evenly balanced.

Players will play a minimum of 8 games and a maximum of 10 games on the day.

The order of play will be displayed for each court and one player per court will be asked to write the result of all the games on the order of play sheet.

The order of play ensures that each player plays with each player twice and against each player between 3 and 5 times (if there are 6 players).

The results of the matches will be populated into a league table for the session and will be published on the PickleballEngland website.

All the results will be consolidated into a cumulative speadsheet, which will award points for wins and losses based on which court players played on, to create an overall ranking table.  This ranking table will be used to determine which court players will be allocated to, based on attendance that month.

The format allows for players to move between groups based on their results.

Results are posted to this page a few days after the event.  Results will also be posted to DUPR in 2024.

Sunday 16th January Results

The NW Doubles League had a great start to the year and a very unique result!  James Gilmour won group 1. His dad John Gilmour won group 3.  James’s stepson Oscar won group 4.   Three generations and three group winners!

13th December 2021 Results


Another full house for the league – 30 players enjoying competitive play.  Elaine couldn’t join the session until she was freed from quarantine after returning home from a trip to Germany.  It is fantastic that the session still took place with Susie Dinsdale looking after proceedings. This session saw the return of Richard Wise after a long break due to injury.  Richard did rather well on court 1 and his daughter Maisie also did rather well on court 3, coming joint top only being pipped at the top on points difference.  Well done to all the court winners.

14th November 2021 Results

Another full house this month with some new faces and a potential future star!  Young Oscar Riding came joint top of his group on his first League attendance.  Can’t wait to see what this young man does in the future.  It was good to see Peter McWhirter back on court after he had to pull out of the English Nationals.

The winter lockdown seemed to go on forever.  The NW took to playing outdoors despite the winter weather.  It was nice for 30 players to be able to get together for Doubles League on 5th June – it was almost as if the world was back to normal!
