In the men's competition, all medals went to Austrian duos, while the Austrian women's team secured the bronze. A packed center court witnessed thrilling all-Austrian showdowns over the weekend. Waller/Ermacora clinched the gold medal in the men's event, seeking revenge against Seidl/Pristauz, who had bested them just weeks ago at the Austrian championships. Nevertheless, the highly motivated Seidl/Pristauz duo is gearing up for their next challenge in October: their debut at the World Championships in Mexico.

The U20 European Champions, Hammarberg/Berger, not only recently stood atop the podium in Podersdorf and claimed third place at the Austrian Championships but also secured the bronze medal in their match against Schnetzer/Petutschnig in Innsbruck. In November, this rising duo will showcase their talents at the U21 World Championships in Thailand.

In the women's competition, gold went to the young Slovenians Ziva Javornik/Maja Marolt in a match against the Hungarians Kun/Windisch. The bronze medal was earned by Magdalena Rabitsch and Anja Trailovic in a match against Slovakia's Tokosova/Poszmikova in their last tournament together. Rabitsch is going to the University of Washington, while Trailovic is training at the ÖVV base in Vienna.
