Maximums for Toby Kerslake and Rod Richards steered Basement Dwellers to a 35-9 win over Gnomads A.  Martin Rant took 5 of Gnomads 9 points which included a 5 set victory over Vince Court. 

Roys Boys got off to a winning start with a 28-17 away success at Minehead A.  Lee Hooper top scored for Roys Boys taking 8 points from his singles.  A great team performance saw Roy and Barry Hooper contribute 5 and 7 singles points respectively.  Junior Chris Norman starred for Minehead A and was only denied his maximum in a 5 set defeat to Lee Hooper.

Shooting Stars (formerly Baptist) recorded a 30-12 home win over Tigers.  Veteran John Phillips led the way taking 8 points from his West Somerset League debut.  Martin Shoots and Tony Burrows added 7 and 6 singles points.  Geoff Williams scored a fine maximum to take 9 of tigers 12 point total.

The only second division result recorded from week 1 was a 34-12 away win for Mad Batters at St. Audries.  Brothers Matthew and Jamie Short scored maximums for the Batters.  Father Trevor Short went down in 4 sets to Andy Godfrey in St. Audries' only singles success.
