Three from Mark Handcock wasn't enough as Broadmoor A's title challenge took a knock, Frimley A holding them to a five all draw in Division 1. Dave Phelps was on sparkling form and looked like inflcting only the second defeat of the season on Graham Watts but it wasn't to be and his two were the only high points,and indeed points, for Central B as they lost 8-2 to Ash A, needless to say Watts won his three. Keith Winter won a good three for Tennis but Denny Perrett and Paul Myers picked up two each to lead Central A to a tight 6-4 triumph. Ash B welcomed back the mercurial Dave Halfpenny from injury with open arms and he didn't disappoint, his treble was ably backed up by duo's from Nigel Care and Dave Gilham as Cody A were put to the sword 7-3.

Terry French and Frank Winard were both unbeaten as Ash D strolled to a 7-3 win over Broadmoor B in DIvision 2. Old Woking's fine form continued at home to Frimley B, Gordon Aplin and Bill Matlock both won three to keep them in the mix for promotion. The battle of Tennis' D and E went to form, the D team winning a keenly contested encounter 7-3, Neil Print proving the difference with three for the victors. John Harvey won a couple for Cody B but only having two men was too high a mountain to climb and Fleet CC A ran out 8-2 winners on the night. Tennis C's Dave Jarvis won a tight battle 11-7 in the fifth against Mike Levey, but Ash C ran out 8-2 winners, triples for Alan Gess and Martin Gilbey proving too much.

Frank Marshall beat all of Tennis H but his teammates couldn't match his efforts as doubles for Michael Bly and Bob Brown meant the H team defeated the G team 6-4. It was closer than the scoreline suggests but maximums from Eliot Tilley and Colin Baggott were enough for Tennis F to inflict a 7-3 defeat on Frimley D. Girl power prevailed as Ash F easily saw off Frimley C, three from Sandy Simpson and two's from Sheila Pretty and Janet Guess did the trick. Farnham Cohesion A lost 8-2 to form team Bentley B, Andy Cunningham only dropping one end on his way to an easy trio, he probably didn't even take his jumper off. Cody D won three of the four games that went to a fifth end but couldn't get the better of their stablemates. Dave Thomes proved the difference winning all three for the C team.

Fleet CC B handed out a beating to Ash K, Andrew Blunden and Jeremy Fox winning all three, John Hutchinson got the only point for Ash, beating Marge Massey, and was unluckily pipped 14-12 in the decider by Fox. John Page won all his games in four to lead Tennis J to a 6-4 win over Fleet CC C. A good three from Dave Phillips wasn't enough as Ash G beat Ash 6-4, George Carder, Terry Kavanagh and Bob Pouney won two apiece for the G team.
