Over 60s Amateur Doubles 2014

15 Sep 2014

Radley; Paul Weaver and Duncan Colquhoun win the Over 60s Doubles


Duncan Colquhoun & Paul Weaver eventually prevailed in a splendid final, beating John Prenn & Richard Moore 6/0 4/6 6/4. Both had been unbeaten in the round-robin stage, surviving a strong challenge from Philip Shaw-Hamilton and Sir Andrew Hamilton (both by 6-4). Vern Cassin and Mick Dean just lost 3-6 to Prenn & Moore, thanks to Prenn’s court coverage and despite Vern Cassin’s fine serving and aggressive volleying. A potentially crucial match, poised at 3-3, was halted as Mick Dean pulled a calf muscle against Shaw-Hamilton & Hamilton but probably did little to affect the eventual result of the tournament.

Both Marek Stefanovicz’s volleying & Jonathan Fisher’s elegant floor play provided a stylish combination without the success they perhaps deserved while David Bryant’s experience combined with William Donger’s power to provide stiff competition for everyone. They played especially well to defeat Stefanovicz & Fisher 6/5, coming from 1-4 down.

The final was a see-saw affair. Colquhoun/Weaver raced through the first set before Prenn assumed more control, and started to switch positions mid-rally to claim more of the play. This was enough for the 2nd set, but Weaver and Colquhoun proved too strong in a tense final set.
