A very competitive match which could have gone either way after Fencibles started more brightly. Their Sarah Buss and Christine Houghton took second womens 21/16, 21/16 versus Gill Young and Renee Michalogiannis, while Selborne's Neil Keatings and Ray McMullen turned a very lengthy second mens around, winning 7/21, 29/27, 21/15 against Joe Burrows and Paul Flanders. First mens was also hotly contested, eventually won by Chris Bulley and Ben Moore 21/14, 26/28, 21/18 over Selborne's Neil McMullen and Jason Lee, while first womens also went to Fencibles through Phillipa Li and Megan Sands to leave the score 6-3 to Fencibles. Selborne did better in the mixed, with Keatings and Michalogiannis winning fourth 21/14, 19/21, 21/17 against Flanders and Houghton, and then Ray McMullen and Gill Young beat Fencibles Bulley and Buss 21/11, 21/8 at third. Both top mixed were good quality as Fencibles Burrows and Sands shaded it 22/20, 21/19 over Neil McMullen and Carol Kelly, before finally Selborne's Lee and Sue Young took first mixed 21/17, 6/21, 22/20.  RM
