Our Men's Singles finalists have been itching to finish their Final after ending it on 6-4 before the rain got too unbearable to play in on Finals Day, and on Saturday 12 August, they finally got the chance to do so.

Simon and Danny are our new Men's Doubles champions, beating Lewis and Kevin in a final full of volley rallies, crosscourt winners and smashes. The final result was 7-5, 6-7, 10-3 - the final chapter ending in a championship tiebreak, as agreed by all participants, as the lights were soon to fade.
