Summer week 10

Trevor Davies and Martin Round of Sutton Coldfield A must have thought their fortunes had turned as they put their team two nil up at home to Smiths Wood A.  However, Helen Turner returning to her former club, was unbeaten and inspired the visitors to win the next seven sets.  Only a win for Davies in the last match of the night saved a point for the home team in a 7-3 defeat. Beaufort Sports A and Streetly A shared the spoils after a thriller . Neither team established dominance.  Two each for Rob Rowson and Jessica Birbeck of Beaufort were matched by doubles for Terry Cooper and Gbemi Okunribido for the visitors. Neither side look capable of catching Colebridge Aces at the top of the league.

Colebridge Braves look set for honours in Division 2 after they beat title rivals Bournville 9-1 at home.  Dean Hicks and defensive ace Steve Taylor were unbeaten for the Shirley based outfit but Lee Holtham lost his long unbeaten record losing in five games to fellow left hander Martin Clayton.

Quinborne dropped two valuable points in their pursuit of the Division 3 title when drawing at home with Smiths Wood B.  A treble for the talented Ming Sung was cancelled out by James Watts and David Lewis who won two each for the visitors and teamed up to win the doubles.  Victories have been rare this summer for Maypole B but a Sam Henderson maximum inspired them to a 7-3 win at Sutton Coldfield C.  The experienced Brian King won two for the visitors and shared a doubles victory with young Henderson.
