Julian Cash & Henry Patten entered the ATP Challenger and were the third seeds. The Brits drew Evan King & Andrew Harris in the first round. The first set was a tough battle, as the American/Aussie pair stayed toe to toe with the seeds. Eventually, a tiebreak ensued which the Brits took and had the lead. The second set was much the same, with King & Harris again forcing a breaker. This time it was the unseeded players that took the breaker and levelled up the match. The final set was a match tiebreak. The Brits edged through to book a spot in the next round 7-6, 6-7, 10-6.

In the quarter-final the Brits were due to face Stefan Kozlov & Alexander Cozbinov. However the American/Moldovian didn’t take to the court and handed the third seeds a walkover into the semi-final. The Brits would have preferred to have played to get through, but Cash & Patten progressed 0-0 (RET).

The semi-final saw Cash & Patten against the top seeds Andre Goransson & Ben McLachlan. The Brits stayed toe to toe with the Swede/Japanese pair and forced a tiebreak. The Brits took the breaker and had the lead. In the second set the third seeds dominated, and eased through to the final in straight sets 7-6, 6-1.

In the final the Brits were against Reese Stalder & Constantin Frantzen. The American/German were no match for the seeds in the first set. Cash & Patten broke serve and soon had the lead. Stalder & Frantzen re-grouped in the second set, and stayed with the Brits. However, in the ensuing tiebreak, the seeds came through and took the title 6-4, 7-6.
