The 7pm matches saw Ashbrook 1sts take on Swords 1sts. James & Brenda, playing at number two, were done and dusted first – winning with an impressive scoreline of 6-2, 6-2. David & Marian won the first set in a nerve wracking (and that was just for spectators) tie-break. Stephen & Martina lost the first set 3-6. The second set went to Swords in the #1 match, whereas at #3, Ashbrook evened things up with a second set win. At this stage, Cathryne Mc Carthy and Augusta Conway were playing a blinder distributing all the ‘nibbles’ to the spectators. On court, David & Marian were going game for game on court number one, whereas Stephen and Martina went into overdrive on court number three – winning their 3rd set 6-1 ! Great scenes of celebration followed
