The Century brings together partnerships with father & son, father & daughter, husband & wife, twin brothers, brothers and friends alike in a well-spirited, yet competitive weekend of doubles. Ninety teams–including players from Canada and Mexico–will compete across the seven divisions: Open, A, Women’s, Mixed, Grand Champions (80+), Masters (70+) and Legends (60+).

After making history in 2018 by becoming the first partnership to win three consecutive Open division titles, Dominic Hughes & Nigel Thain will aim for a fourth title in a row as the top seeds. In Masters division, William Hartigan & Edward Minskoff will hope to emulate Hughes & Thain in winning a fourth consecutive title together.
