After two seasons of not recording a whitewash in the Third Division the record has been broken when top team, Tennis F, beat the bottom team, Fleet B. Peter Killick, Graham McCulley and Peter Butler achieved the maximums. In second spot has suddenly appeared Frimley E whose 8-2 success over Crawley Ridge B has thrust them into favourites for promotion. Ted Cornell and Keiran Daniel were both unbeaten for Frimley. Despite only having two players, Frimley D eased into third place. Brian Greenberg and Ramesh Vasudevamurthy won all the points on offer. Tennis H beat Fleet B 8-2 with Charles Burton and Tushar Vaja unbeaten and team-mate Graham Rudd bagging a brace.

The last remaining quarter-final of the Handicap Cup was won by Tennis K, 7-4, against Crawley Ridge B. It had been tight at 4-4 but Tennis won the last three singles to ease into the semi-finals. Graham Dorey won all his three singles for Tennis but, on the night, all six players won at some point.

In the Fourth Division the top two continue to pull away. Crawley Ridge D, Eric Wong, Yeuk Wan and David Marchant, beat Ash G 9-1 winning all nine singles without losing a game but, amazingly, losing the doubles. Braybrooke B matched this beating Ash F in a double-header. Alan Burkey and Kenny Duarte were both unbeaten and Sandra Jackson supported with a duo. Tennis J beat Fleet C 7-3 with all the Tennis team, Ian Brown, John Davis and John Page bagging braces with all losing to Fleet’s Alan Yeung. Frimley F beat Cody D 7-3 with Charles Rhodes securing a full house for Frimley. In support Alistair Sutherland won a couple as did  Cody’s Norrie Short.

Only a couple of games to report on from the First Division. Leaders Central A, in the form of Paul Baker, Julie Lawrence and Peter Millard, won all the singles but lost the doubles in a 9-1 victory over Ash B. Central B overcame Tennis A 8-2. Andy Appleby was undefeated for Central with team-mates Martin Townshend and Ramesh Bhalla supporting with braces.

In the Second Division Tennis C whitewashed Frimley C to maintain a healthy lead at the top. Mirko Danso, Pu Zhang and Shaun Newbold did the damage. Cody A beat Cody X 8-2 with a maximum for Duncan Sibbick. Dave Stenning and Paul Mission each won twice for the A team with both losing to Kin Chan. Tennis D showed no compassion to their E team club mates inflicting a whitewash on them. Peter Bone, Martin Evans and Mehrdad Abutalebi being unbeaten. Bentley B beat Ash C 7-3 with Robin Street notching up a trio. He was supported by Paul Farrant with Frank Winnard winning twice for Ash.
