Cody F, in the Fourth Division, can at last celebrate their first victory of the season after a 6-4 win over Ash F. Graham Thomas was unbeaten for Ash but doubles by Norrie Short and Nigel Willshire secured the debut win. Frimley E severely dented any ambitions that Braybrooke B may have had for promotion edging through 6-4. Ramesh Vasudevamurthy collected a maximum for Frimley with Charles Rhodes supporting with a brace. Kenny Duarte won a couple for Braybrooke. Fleet C beat a two person Ash G team 7-3 with Alan Yeung unbeaten. Ray Mears won a couple for Ash.

The Second Division continues to be exceptionally tight. Ash C has moved to the top of the table after a 7-3 victory over Braybrooke A. All the Ash team, Nigel Tustin, Chris Cater and Terry French won twice as did Braybrooke’s Mick Rumbold. Cody A and Frimley B split the points with Cody’s Peter Anthony picking up a full house and the Frimley duo of David MacKinnon and John Eade each winning twice. With such a tight division Cody B’s thrashing of Frimley C, 9-1, will take on added meaning. Dave Stenning and Paul Mission were both unbeaten with Duncan Sibbick winning twice.

Crawley Ridge B, in the Third Division, maintained their promotion push with an emphatic 9-1 win over their A team. Phil Garrett and David Skellern each won all their matches with Stephen Bridle supporting with a duo. Cody C chalked up an excellent 8-2 victory over a strong Ash D team. Both David Thomas and John Harvey were unbeaten. Frimley D beat Fleet B 7-3 thanks to a maximum from Brian Greenberg and a double from Tony Harrison. Andrew Blunden bagged a brace for Fleet. Cody D beat Ash E by the same score with Kim Phillips winning all three for Cody and John Sheehy supporting with a pair. Les Knight won twice for Ash.

In the First Division Central B overcame Frimley A 9-1 with Martin Townshend, Ramesh Bhalla and Andy Appleby winning all the singles. Central A beat Tennis B with Phil Snelson picking up a full house. Team-mates Paul Baker and Peter Millard each bagged braces with both losing to Tennis’ Paul Shakespeare. Tennis A beat Ash B 7-3 with all the Tennis players, Eliot Tilley, Paul Myers and Rod Kay winning twice as did Ash’s James Wyncoll.
