With second to fifth places in this league being covered by only five games both teams were eager to put games on the board.  Vikings started off well with a win at second mens for David Craig and Steve Allen 23/21 21/15 over Damian Peter and Chris Gregory.

First womens was a forty five minute marathon with Lou Mellor and Karen Hassan taking the first game 21/18 against Jess Li and Charlotte Dougherty before the young Vikings combination fought back to take the next two games 21/17 21/15.  Vikings Sam and Yvonne Irvine had a good win at second womens which was followed by an impressive 21/18 21/18 win for Matthew Nicholson and Kevin Harding of Vikings over Baillie and Fingal Watterson.  Gregory and Lauraine Williamson took a good win at fourth mixed 24/22 21/19 for Castletown/Abbey but this was quickly followed  with a win for Vikings courtesy of Harding and Yvonne Irvine 21/11 21/13 at third mixed.  At second mixed Castletown/Abbey’s Fingal Watterson and Karen Murphy started very quickly against Allen and Samantha Irvine winning the first game 21/8 before mid way through the second game the Vikings pair turned things around to win 21/18 21/19.  Vikings sealed an excellent 14-4 win when Nicholson and Li got the better of Baillie Watterson and Mellor 21/18 21/19 at first mixed.

Mixed League 3

 

Duncan Lawrie Selborne C 11 Tynwald Celts A 9

 

Selborne  narrowly won this at times hotly contested relegation battle with some long hard-fought yet 'friendly' games. Bit of a family affair for Tynwald Celts with four Callows in their team - firstly son Thomas paired up well with Dave Wilson to shade second mens 21/14 18/21 21/18 against Chris Ewan and Neil Keatings, while Selborne's Renee Michalogiannis and Gill Young beat Jo Smith and Isabel Barrie 21/9 21/17 at second womens. First mens had many long rallies before Selborne’s Ray and nephew Neil McMullen won 21/19 12/21 21/17 against dad Mark Callow and Brian Quirk. Next up mum and daughter Fiona and Bethany Callow got the better of Sue Young and Carol Kelly who unfortunately retired hurt during first womens. Selborne won the bottom two mixed, best being Ewan and Gill Young's win over Wilson and Barrie 21/15 21/18. At second mixed Tynwald Celts Mark and Bethany Callow 'got out of jail' winning 21/19 20/22 21/16 versus Ray McMullen and Sue Young, and finally Quirk and Fiona Callow took first 21/16, 18/21, 21/5 against Selborne’s Neil McMullen and sub Angela Guest.
