The first match was high quality tennis with many long rallies. Bebb & Lawton edge the first set but Adam & Browne showed greater consistency to win the last 2 sets.
The second match was a game of two halves. The first set was played off level and Mansfield & Jenkins won it easily and raced into a 4-0 lead in the second. But the last 2 sets, played off handicap, were much tighter and Fielden & White started to play much better and won both sets.
Armstrong & Dyson started off strongly and won the first set comfortably. But the ladies then started retrieving magnificently and clawed their way back from 5-2 down to win the second set. In the third set, Armstrong & Dyson started hitting powerfully and overpowered the opposition to win the match.
In the fourth match, Mortimer & Harding were initially surprised at the power of Campione’s volleying but they steadied themselves to win both sets relatively comfortably.
The first set of the final match was very tight but Bebb’s consistency in particular prevailed and the two Jamies ran out winners.
