Chargers v Brandon B
Chargers keep the pressure on the top two on Division 3 by sweeping away Brandon B in a local derby. The impeccable Max Duffin took player of the match with all three singles win and taking the doubles with Dennis Jennings.

The game of the night was the game between Trop Madison for Brandon against Dennis for Chargers where attacking play dominated from the start and the youngster Troy showed all his attacking promise by taking Dennis over the full 5 ends and won 3-2.
Handicap Cup Singles
Brian Bateman(Durham CA) v Matt Greenwood(Desperadoes)
A truly competitive and absorbing match that really held true with the handicap scores.
Matt had a 14 point start against one of the most consistent performers in the league, Brian, whose ‘dead ‘ bat and backhand chop make him a difficult player to get the ball past. Rallies in the first two games were long and slow with Brain consistently waiting until he had a chance for a backhand drive. The first two games went right to the wire with Brian coming back from 20-15 down in each end to win the first 22-20, and the second 26-24. Matt was taken to one side by his coach, Dan Hutchinson who changed Matt’s style to attack the ball earlier, and force Brian away from the board. With Matt taking the advice and with Brian tiring, Matt started taking advantage of errors and took the next three ends 21- 14, 21-15, 21-15 to win 3-2 and go into the quarter finals.
Desperadoes v Eagles
There is no quarter given in any interclub match and this proved no exception with the youngsters of Eagles against the more mature Desperadoes.
No games were easy and matt Greenwood proved his credentials in taking player of the match by winning all 3 and combining with John Reid to take the doubles. Both John Reid and Sam Duffin took 2 each. For the Eagles, Jack Pugh is proving his consistency in the averages by putting a performance in by winning two of his singles and making Matt work really hard before going down 3-1. The two 13 year olds Oliver King and Matt Hutchinson can think themselves unlucky not to take anything anyway in a very competitive game. Desperadoes win 8-2.
