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

Dougie Kempsell wins the Shepparton International PSA $5K Tournament in Melbourne

sheppe23Dougie Kempsell wins the P.S.A. $5K Shepparton International Tournament in Melbourne this weekend with a stunning run of form and determination to clinch the top prize.

He was seeded No.5 and so had to beat the No.4 and No.2 seeds on the way to the final. The first of  these matches was an hour and a half marathon against Tayyab Aslam the No.2 seed from Pakistan (and World No.84) which Dougie won 11-5 in the 5th.

And if that was a marathon then the very next day was a triathlon as Dougie beat the home player and No.4 seed Josua Larkin in a match lasting 2 and a half hours! And it went all the way to 13-11 in the last game – what an effort!

So to The Final and it’s amazing that Dougie had anything left after those last two matches, but he did and won the final 3-0 against Josh Masters from England in just 34 minutes.

Fantastic win Doug and many congratulations.
