Charlie Standen and Nathan Holmes also played well taking their matches to three ends and winning. Consistent performances from Ellie Reed, Amy Grout, Maddie Ilsey and Charlotte Grigg, making her debut, meant we went into the doubles on a draw.

The mixed doubles was a tense hour, but highlighted the strength and depth to our team.  Luke Sillifant and Ellie Reed went on to win their third county mixed doubles match this season; a strong pairing. We managed to win 4 of the 6 mixed matches to beat Avon 19-17!

A fantastic team effort.
