Find out what went down at the final tournament of the year!

On the 23rd of September, we held the 2023 British Nationals to mark the end of an amazing season here in the UK!

On Saturday, teams came together to compete in the Open Division and Women’s division to compete for the chance of being Britain’s best team! And for the first time, we held our first Mixed Tournament on Sunday! 

In the finals of the Women’s division, we saw  “Always Wrong, Never Right” (Sophie Cooke and Emily Hill Smith) go against “Coupla Sheilas” (Jemima Lee and Nicole Fatt). 

This was a 3 set battle, but eventually the lefties prevailed as Sophie and Emily took the win granting them their first tournament wins of the season! 

In the Open Division, we saw “Elbourne/Lim”(Mark Elbourne and Alex Lim) play against “Beavertails” (Trevor Cook and Jamie Carmichael). 

Mark and Alex were looking to continue their success after winning the English Open in Birmingham earlier this season while Trevor and Jamie were hungry for their first win! Mark and Alex went down the first set but worked very hard to win the next two sets, crowning them the British National Champions 2023. 

This has been a memorable season for Mark Elbourne who has won every British Roundnet tournament he has played in- quite the feat!

The next day, we saw Trevor and Mark face off again in the Mixed Finals with their teammates Sophie Cooke and Ruth Troughton respectively. Mark and Ruth ended up picking up the win to end our 2023 Season!
