Doug Kempsell wins again! This time the Berlin Airport Xmas Challenger 2016

Its been a great week for the Scottish contingent around Europe and Dougie Kempsell kept things going in the right direction last weekend in Berlin at the 2016 Airport Christmas Challenger.

He upset the seedings by beating Adam Murrills, the No.1 seed (and World Ranked PSA 104) in the quarter finals in a massive 3-2 (12-10 in the 5th) then took out the 4th seed in the next round and finally won the final in 4 games against Mohammad Al Sarraj in front of a crown of almost 5000 people!!

These last two tournament wins should propel Dougie back up the rankings and maybe even to his highest ranking to date – watch this space!doug-kempsell-berlin-airport-christmas-challenger-2016
