The Senior Ladies’s Thirds and Fourths played against each other in a third division match.
It is always a difficult match for players when it involves a team from the same club and this was no exception with a very close match.
The Fourths – Gill Bell, Lesley Gibbons, Jenny Murphy and Hilda Hastings - had the advantage of being unbeaten with two matches already behind them this season.
For the Thirds - Helen Motson, Denise Priestley, Sue Dring and Helen Duckett - it was the first match of the summer.
The Fourths won 3-1 when a close three-setter swung the team’s way avoiding a draw.
