Martin Murray and Brian Russ won the Roehampton Doubles Weekend
Martin Murray and Brian Russ won the Roehampton Handicap Doubles Weekend. The highlight of the weekend was the emotional return to Roehampton of Martin and Brian a full 50 years after their first appearance there. Martin is of course a well known player, but Brian rarely plays these days. They resumed their partnership with aplomb however and were worthy and popular winners with a full house of wins. The weather was kind, the lawns were in superb condition (thanks to RC's Head Groundsman Chris Hughes), and Douglas Gurney remains an excellent Manager.
