Uitsig DTT ’15 a resounding success

The 2nd rendition of the Uitsig Double Trouble 2015 came to a fitting end on Saturday as we remembered Justin vd Merwe.  Our thoughts are still within Alison and family on the loss of a great ambassador to the sport.

DTT ’15 comprised of 34 teams of two players per team catering the Great, Good and Beginners as well as the Young and Old with players from 1st to 15th league and 11 to 65 years old participating across 95 matches.

Playing a combination of doubles and singles and accumulating points to determine the result; the finals proved how close the matches were.  Section winners were:

  • A Section – Old Dog New Tricks (Derek vd Merwe & Brett Cousins) beating E = RC2 (RC Joubert & Ralph du Toit) by just 6 points
  • B Section – Gr8 Whites (Deon Groenewald & Barend Lourens) beating Team Oh! (Koch de Jager & Derek de Klerk) on a count out.
  • C Section – Thunder & Lightning (Marnus & Beandri v Loggerenberg) beating Huff & Puff (Ryno Coetzee & Dana v Zyl) by 6 points.
  • D Section – Load Shedders (Hannes Wahl & Alan Botha) amassing a mammoth 618 points in 5 matches.

And in true tradition the teams lived up to the fun side of the event:

  • Best Dressed : Guns ‘n Roses (Colin Friend & Delana de Jongh)
  • Best Gees : CSIR and Kentron (Stefan Apelcryn & Koch de Jager)
  • Best Name : Nerd Herd (JP Britz & Theanette Smit)
  • Most Appropriate Name : Amakrokke (Audette Smith & Lueann de Beer) – both injured in the tournament but played through!

2016 promises to be bigger and better!
