Vets A, leading the group, beat Winsc Warriors despite their less favourable handicaps. Colin Lewis and Roger Crump (both 2) and Ann Sandford (6) won all their matches.

Paul Millward (12) was a tough opponent and unlucky not to take a point after taking all three to three games. Crump also lost the second game to Dave Parker (11). Vets go through 9-0.

Totterdown Flamingos were no pushover either. Nigel Andrews (7) beat Ann Sandford in three and had close games with Crump, playing some great forehand and backhand shots. Crump won all three though 
it was close against Lyudmilla Cronin, who was unlucky not to win. Cronin beat Lewis in three as Vets won 7-2.

Winsc Renegades also had two good wins to consolidate their position. Against Walton Wanderers, who could only field two players, Wanderers’ Mike Harris (-2) played well to take all three against Paul Hayward (-3) and Trevor Jones (1) in two, but Phil Yates (10) held on to win one game. Renegades won 6-3.

Playing Vets C, Renegades won the match 8-1, Paul Hayward (-3) had a tough match to beat John Barcham (9) and Roger Norvill and Mark Treasure both 10. Treasure took the lone Vets’ point beating Trevor Jones (1).

Totterdown C’s Garry Chell (7) had a good match winning all three matches with the loss of one game to Flamingos’ Graham Cheeseman. Nigel Andrews (7) beat Rick Cross (8) and Mark Price (7). Trevor Williams (13) had some close games. Flamingos won 6-3.

In the league, Division 2 Totterdown Flamingos’ Graham Cheeseman had an untroubled three singles without losing a game against Winsc Warriors. Anne Baker was top scorer for Warriors with wins over Andy Cheeseman in three and Trevor Williams 11-6 in the fourth.

Williams had a good match to beat Cath Smith in four and Pete Joiner in a hard fought five games. Flamingos won 23-13.

Warriors just missed out by one point against C & C Banwell. Max Jerimiah took top honours with three wins, losing a game to Anne Baker and Margaret Parker.
