NW Doubles League is so popular Elaine and team increased capacity for March by adding a second venue – 4 courts at Bolton Arena.  This meant that an additional 24 players could be accommodated and many of them were new to doubles league which is fantastic!

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.

11th September 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 next NW Doubles League will be the same venue on World Pickleball Day, 10th October, 2021.  Arrive 10.45am for prompt 11am start and 3pm finish.

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!
