The Borders Mixed Doubles Competition took place on Sunday the 7th Nov. Duns had 2 teams in the mix, Liz and Colin Martin plus Helen Forbes and Colin J.

Liz and Colin topped their section with 2 wins and a peel to go onto the final. Despite winning 2 games, Helen and Colin J narrowly missed out 5-4 in their match against Oliver Stark and Violet which meant Oliver and Violet (last year's champs) went into the final with 3 wins.

Oliver and Violet took the first 2 ends with singles but, when lying shot against, Liz played an absolute beauty to slide through the narrowest of ports to do a raised tap back and lie 3. Oliver's response was good but not good enough and this proved the turning point as Liz and Colin went on to victory.
