Tayside Doubles

The 2013 Tayside Doubles was held at the Portcullis, Arbroath, on Saturday.

Arbroath pair Steve Hallam and Gareth Ruxton defeated Ryan Fleming and Gary McLeish in an enthralling final by five frames to four.

This adds a second title to Gareth and Steve’s achievements after their recent ADPL Scotch Doubles win. They will look to add the ADPL Doubles to that list in the coming weeks.

Thanks were extended to George and Lorraine Williams for once again being great hosts and making everyone feel welcome.
