Congratulations to Jeff Newcombe and Alan Sands of Como on winning the GC State Doubles. The runners-up were Torben Bak and Dorothy Bull (Forrest Park and York).
Jeff’s win came in his first GC competition ever and follows his recent win in the Australian AC Men’s Singles (it should also be noted that Alan was the winner of the ACA Silver Medal). Jeff and Alan were undefeated in their ten round-robin and two finals matches. Jeff and Alan have previously paired to win the AC State Doubles on several occasions.
The championship attracted large contingent of 22 pairs, with players from 13 clubs, which were spread over a crow-flying distance of 537 km. The number of entries meant that two venues, Forrest Park and Nedlands, were used for the event.
