The Aardvarks beat the struggling Beacons 9-1.

Kieran Crawford gained two hard fought victories, and joined John Gazeley for the doubles to win comfortably.

The Dynamics are in the position that games are hard to come by but Ray Lovely manage one when he beat Jacob Marshall in a 9-1 defeat by the top spot Chunky Monkeys.

In Division Two the Kestrels beat the Falcons but did not have it all their own way as Chis Whitely picked up two good wins and joined Hayden Denman to take the doubles as his side went down 7-3.
