Division 1
Even with a much changed team, Kingfisher A were much too strong for bottom team Lightning B who got off to a reasonable start by winning 1 ladies and 3 mens to give them hope for a much needed bonus point. However, Kingfisher took all the mixed to run out 20-4 winners. Kingfisher's Rachel Dewhurst won 8 and Nathan Bunting won 3 mens for Lightning.

Poulton visited Lightning A on Thursday looking for another 3 points. Their ladies took all 6 games although Lightning were unlucky not to win 1 game which ended 26-24 to Poulton. Lightning's men won 3 games but again were on the the wrong end of a 26-24 setting. Poulton won the first 2 mixed sets to effectively win the match but Lightning responded by winning the next 2. In the final set Lightning managed to win a game to give them a hard fought point. Michelle Skinner won 8 and Oliver Hives won a creditable 6 games for Lightning.
