Champions Hollington Academy A beat a weakened Bexhill C 9-1 with Paul Barry and Nathan Darby unbeaten and Ryan Heselden winning two. Pete Robinson won Bexhill’s consolation, coming from 0-2 down to beat Heselden 13-11 in the decider.
Heselden also let slip a 2-0 lead against Andy Chapman but held on to win 11-9 in the fifth.
Bexhill A are joint leaders after beating Hollington Academy B 10-0 with Rob Warner, Ryan Warner and David Rayment unbeaten. Academy’s Rose Rainton aggravated an injury and was forced to concede two of her sets while Tony Catt was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.
