Frank McHale scorched to another maximum, whilst Rob Chapman salvaged a win over Andy Guy for the Sharks.

Meanwhile, Budgen's Turtles kept up their winning ways with a 4-1 win over Pryce Sports Weavers and, in this game, Howard Back won both his matches in straight sets whilst Fiona Howard, for the Weavers, beat Tony Rowland for the consolation point.

In the junior division, Andy Wilson's Sharks overcame the Pennywell Farm Stingrays 5-2 in a contest that was a lot closer than the score suggests. Three of the matches could have gone either way. Closest of the night was John King's 14-12, 7-11, 13-11 win over Jason Dye whilst Ollie Sharp claimed an impressive maximum.

Morey's Eels and Tesco's Turtles had a titanic battle with the Turtles coming out on top 4-3. The last match saw Matthew Wallace beat Ross Buckler 11-7 11-6 for the win.

Finally, Budgen's Beavers secured a 5-2 win over CountryLife Dolphins thanks to a great maximum by Hannah Sharp.
