Ed Kay does the double at the London Open
Saturday/Sunday 15-16 September 2018
At the London Open Fives Championships 2018 Ed Kay successfully defended his Singles title and then went on, despite twisting his ankle in the second game, to win the Doubles title with partner Dan Grant.
In the Singles Ed brought to an end an 11-month unbroken run of titles for Dan Tristao, while in the Doubles it was also at the expense of Dan, who was paired with Julian Aquilina.
Ed, who is a multiple winner of titles at National Schools, U25s and British Universities has now won 10 open titles:
In Singles he has won London Open 2017 and 2018, Yorkshire Open 2017, South East Open 2014; and in Doubles he has won the West of England 2016 and 2017, the North West Open 2015 and 2017 (with Matt Shaw), the London Open 2018 and the Yorkshire Open 2017.
In addition Ed has twice won the National Winchester Doubles: in 2016 and 2018.
From the ranks of Cambridge players only David Hebden (78 titles) and the late John Pretlove (11) have won more open titles. Ed is now level with Paddy d’Ancona.
