Alan pushed Sarah to the time limit in a great back and forth match; and secured victory 5 games to 3. Linda didn’t let Sarah’s husband Steve in at any point during the one sided epic, securing a 6-0 victory.

Julian faced a tough handicap against Don but played fiercely to achieve a comprehensive victory. Jim fought hard to win his match with a smaller but no less troublesome handicap deficit.

Linda and Alan stayed on top, beating the Sullivans 6-1 in the doubles; Jim and Julian faced a wall in their match, finally succumbing the brutal handicap. Jim has decided to reintroduce his stool in the first gallery for the next doubles battle.

Jim’s Mum Louise provided a banquet to finish the evening for both the pennant crew and the doubles league, so a very good feast was had by all.
