John Hunt was on form for Ashorne notching a treble, with the loss of just a single game, as they beat their close rivals FISSC. George Mudie added a brace, although he was taken to a decider by Peter Bruce-Moore. Peter Florence won two for the Farmers while Bruce Moore and Malcolm Smith also got on the card. The outcome of the fixture depended on the doubles where the Villagers romped home to ensure a final scoreline of 6 - 4.

Shottery B recorded an impressive victory when they were entertained by a West Warwicks team missing their talisman Andy Rowland. Tim Fell and Dave Milton both contributed perfect performances for the visitors by winning all their singles, as well as combining to secure the doubles. However Milton was made to work hard by Alison Stewart before, in the only match of the evening to go the distance, he finally won their fifth game by a narrow 11 - 9 margin. However Stewart did gain some consolation as both she and Jim Ferguson managed to overcome Tony Remes but it was not enough to prevent their team losing 2 - 8.

However West Warwicks experienced contrasting fortunes in their next outing as they defeated a strong Henley A team who never really got into their stride. Rowland was back in the fold and led the way with an unbeaten display. Jim Ferguson added a brace although he was not able to get the better of Geoff Shephard. Stewart also won two for the Solihull side but, once again, was involved in the only match to go the distance. After being two games down to Stuart Ayres she fought back to level the score, only to lose out in the decider. Rowland and Stewart were particularly impressive in the doubles where they conceded a total of just seven points as the evening ended 8 - 2 in their favour.

Although Shottery C and Ashorne have yet to contest their knockout cup tie the semi-final draw has been made. The winners of this fixture will entertain Shottery B while Henley A are at home to Royal Mail.
