Charles and Leigh did not lose a set, however, two of their sets were very close finishing on 4 all.

The results of their sets were 4/4, 6/2, 4/4, 6/2, 3/5. Rob was a fill-in for Mark Liebich.

Next best were Hugh Moffitt and his fill-in for Pat Hazell, Lewis Keogh.

The pair won 20 games after great tussles in three sets which finished at 4 games each.

Hugh and Lewis won the second last set 5/3, but went down in the last 3/5. Stuart McKellar and Rod Freudenstein were just a game behind, winning 19 after having mixed results.

Their sets were 5/3, 2/6, 4/4, 1/7, 7/1.

Matthew Clarke and John Walmsley also had a good night of tennis after having three of their sets finishing on 4 all.

They lost their other two sets, 3/5, 1/7 for a total game count of 16. Graham and Arnold Brown also won 16 games for the round.
