To maximise the evening, everyone played against each other in the best of three sets. The top four went through to the semi-finals.

Toby and Elliot went to three sets to, in a close fought match, which eventually went to Toby 11-7, 12-14, 11-7.
Toby (2nd) played Elliott (3rd) in the first semi-final. This time Toby had full control of the match with some impressive forehands, winning 11-9, 11-4. James (1st) experience told and beat Santos (4th) comfortably 11-5, 11-3.
In the final (playing best of 5), due to some nerves(?), James missed a few a serves in the first game, but still won 11-7. He took control winning the second 11-4. The third was closer, with Toby get some good returns, but he could do very little against James’s good serving (when they went on the table!), and the final set went 11-7.
