Ben Jones and doubles partner Dan Little avenge final defeat to win third ITF World Tennis Tour title at M25 Toulouse-Balma tournament

28 March 2022

Team Bath Tennis player Ben Jones and partner Dan Little claimed their third men’s doubles title in five months on the ITF World Tennis Tour after a week of strong performances at the M25 Toulouse-Balma tournament in France.

University of Bath graduate Jones and Little dropped just six games as they eased through the opening two rounds to set up a semi-final against French duo Arthur Bouquier and Martin Breysach.

It was a repeat of the previous week’s final at the M15 Poitiers tournament, which top seeds Bouquier and Breysach had won 6-4 6-4, but Jones and Little came out on top this time to progress 3-6 6-4 10-8 after a hard-fought contest.

Theo Arribage and Luca Sanchez provided another French test in the final but Jones and Little came through it with a 7-5 6-4 victory to add the title to their two doubles crowns won in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt, in November.
