27 October 2019

Participants in the Champion of Champions - Doubles

Seven clubs took part in the Champion of Champions Doubles at Naenae in a single round-robin format. Three rounds were played in the morning and the remaining four were played after lunch.

The pre-tournament favourites were the Senior Doubles Champions, Dave Gatchell and Ann Hogg (Horowhenua).

Going into the final round, Horowhenua had won 5 games, Manawatu had won 4 and Upper Hutt had won 3, so they were assured of first place.

In a game that saw the lead change several times, Upper Hutt narrowly defeated Horowhenua 13-12 to clinch third place and deny Horowhenua the clean sweep.

Manawatu defeated Kapiti to join Horowhenua on 5 wins, but having lost their game to Horowhenua had to settle for second place.
