Convincing wins from Brixham Sharks to open their campaign with a 9-1 win over Halwell and a 10-0 whitewash over Newton Bishops. Dave Wadling of Halwell defeating Jazmin Johns was the only set loss so far for the Sharks. Their stablemates, Gulls, started well with a 9-1 victory over Dawlish Aces and then came across reigning champions Batmen and suffered a 7-3 reversal, with the Millman brothers, Josh & Aaron, and Mick Mercer all defeating Mike Dummett in close games.

Dawlish Aces suffered another defeat at the hands of a rejuvenated Halwell 8-2; Dawlish’s new signing Giles Tushingham got both games for the Aces.

In Division 2 Taverners had a epic match with Brixham Swallows and eventually came out 8-2 victors. There were no straight set wins all evening with the Swallows battling all night and being unfortunate only to end up with 2 points from wins by Oliver Slocombe and Andy Millman. Alan Tyrrell gained a maximum for the Taverners.

Bishops Academicals started their campaign with a whitewash over the youngsters of Brixham Pirates, who, despite being well beaten, kept up a good, positive attitude throughout the evening and thought they were going to save the whitewash with Tom Haggerty 9-2 up in the 5th set  against Doug Morgan, but Doug’s experience and heavy chop eventually prevailed.

In a tight affair at Marldon, Tykes triumphed 6-4 thanks to a Chris Garner maximum.

The only result in the third division was Brixham Rebels demolition of Dawlish Drifters 10-0.
