The men’s doubles title went to Chris Elliot and Kelsey Elliot from Reston, who placed third last year in the MHSAA provincial tournament in the same category. Melissa Liew and Valerie Chan of Fort Richmond captured the women’s doubles title this year.

Blair Kaminski from Vincent Massey Winnipeg, last year’s 2009 MHSAA men’s singles champion, once again captured this year’s title in the same category.

Kristy Beettam of J.H. Bruns captured her second straight title as the MHSAA 2010 women’s singles champion.
