Waterside N vs Waterside M
Colin French offered the greatest resistance to the win by the N over their higher rated Waterside M team. Albert Garcia cruised to a three 3-0 singles maximum as he maintained his 100% record. The other Albert got a lot of value from his STTA affiliation fee by playing 5 sets in each of his matches.
