Our top 4 Mens Teams all had strong wins on Saturday to maintain their positions in the top 4 in their grades. All the other teams suffered losses. With 4 rounds to go all points are vital now. Lots of our affluent members are away on their Europe sojourns so a lot of our teams may be weakened in the next month.
Badge Results Round 10

Mens 2.5 Lost 6-2 at home to Chatswood. Daniel/Roger won 2 sets and Stu/Ray Dummett tried hard.
Mens 2.6 Lost 5-2 away at Strathfield. Bob/Ray and Peter/ Ian both won 1 set. There was an unfinished set by Bob /Ray. Strathfield had one very strong player so we have protested his grading and await a reply.

Ladies 1.2 Lost 5-2 at home. Olivia/Sophie won 2 sets whilst Julie/Sharna had an unfinished set. The ladies remain in 2nd position.
