Alexandra also had a great run in the mixed with partner, Michael Staunton. They beat two French pairs to gain a place in the last 16, where they had a tough match against eventual runners-up, also from France, Aymeric Tores and Emilie Drouin, narrowly losing out 21/14, 21/19. It was a great tournament for the young Ennis player.
Another Forza sponsored player in action at this event was Peter McDonald.

In his mens doubles, Peter and his partner Michael Staunton won a thrilling first round match, against a good English pair 21/12 in the third, to set up a match with the no.1 seeds from Austria. They started off strong taking the first set 21/14 and were unlucky to eventually lose 21/19, 21/9.
