Jamie Douglas retained the Gold Racquet at Lords today beating Ed Kay 6/2 6/0 3/6 6/3. A great match with wonderful retrieving and athleticism not to mention the ball being struck prodigiously hard.

Jamie Douglas won the 2022 MCC Gold Racquet title at Lord's on June 25 beating his challenger Ed Kay 6/2 6/0 3/6 6/3 in a blistering contest full of forcing into the dedans and Jamie's trademark boasts from the hazard into the corner at the service end. Ed was under immense pressure in the first two sets but withstood that to win the third set in fine style. He was 3-0 up in the fourth set and at that point it looked as though the match might go to a fifth but the relentless pressure from Jamie prevailed and took him to his eleventh title. Chris Swallow marked the match superbly in traditional style from the middle of the court.
