Week 3 of the TW Friday Doubles League

comp_fun_smWe are midway through the regular season in the TW Friday Doubles League after every team has now played each team in the league once. After three matches, Team Johnson and O’Leary stand atop the rankings with a perfect 3-0 record.

Week 3 started out with Team Blonde taking on Team Leftovers in a hotly contested match of contrasting styles. Michelle and Brittany began the match banging away from the baseline, with Troy and Mark using touch and feel shots around the net. The match was level at 2-2 when a number of consecutive deuce games all went the girls’ way. They jumped out in front and finished with an 8-3 victory.

The TW Friday Doubles League (FDL)!

As the weather heats up, so has the competition amongst our playtesters here at the Warehouse. We are starting a Friday Doubles League, starting this week. Over the next two months, we will play a round robin format, and then finish the league with a playoff seeded off the results of the “regular season”.

There will be four teams:
-Chris/Granville (Team Air Cooled)
-Michelle/Brittany (Team Blonde)
-Troy/Mark (Team Leftovers)
-Andy/Spencer (Team Johnson & O’Leary)

Each team will play one match per week and play every team twice over the course of the next six weeks. At the end of the six weeks, we will do a playoff with the seeding based off the results of the six weeks. After two more weeks, we will have a champion!

The format of the matches will be 8-game pro sets, and the matches will be played on Fridays unless there is a scheduling conflict for the players. We will be posting pictures and videos of the matches, so let us know the matchups you want to see and we’ll try to put together some highlights of the most requested matches.

For Week 1 (May 6-10), the matchups are:

Brittany/Michelle vs. Andy/Spencer
Troy/Mark vs. Chris/Granville (next Tuesday, due to a scheduling conflict)

Stay tuned for updates following the first week of matchups!
