In the end, one team from each group finished undefeated and claimed the win. The Re-Ignite Group was won by Topher Ernharth and Tyler Stallings. Finishing in second place was Jack Delaney and Owen Patel. All four players were from the Fox Chapel Racquet Club.

In the Ozone Group, Michael Kilmer and Jeff Savin overcame a 6-1 deficit in their final match to finish undefeated. Brothers Cooper and Mason Friday won a tiebreaker in their final match to finish in second place by just one game. Again, all 4 players were from the Fox Chapel Racquet Club so it was a clean sweep for the host club.
