Bitton gained a rare whitewash in their last outing as they defeated Bathford C. The trio of Chris Toft, Alan Papier and Fred Martin are looking strong in Division One and could mount a title challenge over the coming weeks.

Russell Cole almost registered a point against Papier later that night but lost out 10-12 in the second of their three games.

The night started well for Tanner picking up three points after a deuce second set against Godara. However Oldfield then asserted their dominance with eighteen points in a row to Key Centre’s four; with Bailey winning all of his matches.

 

It looked to be twenty one points in a row after Dowding went two sets up against Tanner. In spite of this set back Tanner dispatched Dowding 11-3, 11-9 and 11-3. Ruse then went on to beat Godara, debuting this season, comfortably for an unchallenged three points, with Key Centre winning the doubles 3-0.
