The men’s first team kept their unbeaten Division One run going with a resounding 8-0 home win over visitors Stoney Stanton.

New club coach and winter league skipper Ryan Parmar teamed up with Tom Ellis and they showed good form to collect a 6-2, 6-4 win which they followed up with a 6-2, 6-0 victory.

Livewire Ben Mactaggart then teamed up with Tom Rowe and they also collected four sets for the loss of just seven games.
