Spanish Open 2019 Report

September 19

The Spanish Open was held in Madrid from 6-8 September. Again this was a well attended international pickleball tournament with 163 players from 13 countries taking part.

The facilities were excellent and the weather was warm but not as hot as Fayence the previous week. For those of you who experienced some organisational challenges at previous Spanish Opens, this one was very well organised and very inclusive with all communication taking place in Spanish, English and French.

Sue and Leo were there flying the flag for Runnymede Royals.

Medals were:-
Gold for Sue in the over 50s 3.5 Singles
Silver for Leo and Mark Cahill in the 4.0/4.5 over 19s Mens Doubles
Silver for Sue and Lou Stephens in the over 50s 4.0/4.5 Ladies Doubles

Definitely a tournament I will be attending again next year.
That is it for me for tournaments in 2019!!
