Hedge End were very surprised and delighted to beat soton West G 10-0 when their opponents had shown impressive recent form. Man of the match John Taylor won his three in emphatic style. Colin Jones also won a treble also dropping just one leg as he played with a swagger even producing backhand hits and loop shots. Robin Plunkett also won a maximum having been in fine form in legs 3 and 4 to overcome Alan Dawson and Jack Doncom 3 sets to one. Jack came agonisingly close to a two set lead v Plunkett as soton West G went home empty handed, having hit many fierce forehands which dried up as Plunkett managed to stop them.

sue zMatch Report Waterside O v Soton West O by Tony Huggett
Waterside O got a 10-0 win and Sue hit a great sequence of backhands and later discovered she had an equally good forehand as well. She was really positive when closing out her games. John Dane ‘guested’ and really showed he is a strong lower league player, striking the ball well when playing back from the table and picking his angles well when he came forward.
