World Doubles Racquets Championship 2023
The Inaugural World Doubles Racquets Championship took place at The Manchester Tennis and Racket Club and The Queen’s Club, back in 1990. The event is held every 2 years, making it all the more special and exciting. Like the World Singles Racquets Championship, the format is two Legs to the best of seven games with the winners being decided by the best aggregate score. While traditionally one Leg is held in North America and the other in the UK, this years Championship will be the first time that both Legs will be held in a single location, The Tennis & Racquet Club of Boston!
The formatting change will make for a very exciting event, magnified by the fact that this is the first time in the Club’s history that it will host a Racquets World Championship. The T&R is gearing up for an amazing few days of competition and camaraderie.
