Impressive leaders Ceyms C had a tough looking 6-4 win over Taverham A – then the Ceyms trio of Paul Barrett, Robin Thaxter, and Paul Brown followed up with a 10-0 demolition of Dynamic Rams who themselves are having an impressive season, lying third in the table. This is also proof that Ceyms really are too good for this division.

Wensum D dispatched bottom team Foxwood E 10-0 to cement second spot in the table.

Returners A have taken two wins from three games and now sit in a lofty mid-table position to continue their decent season.

In Division One, Taverham hosted the match against St Faiths Centre A. It was 1-1 before George Luong's incredible game with Andy Cullum, with George netting, spinning and serving in a 'passionate' match. Andy squeezed the win in the fifth to put SFC ahead. Then came a game of 'margins' between Eric Melvin and St Stephens' Paul Elsegood, which went Taverham's way. Jack Harrowing did the same and it was even stevens at 3-3. Elsegood won a critical rubber against Luong 11-9 in the fifth. Cullum just got home against Melvin in another five-setter as SFC went 5-3 up. Paul Arthurs sealed the match for SFC with a star performance, beating Harrowing.

NCC A lost to Foxwood H, 6-4. If this was a football match it would be described as a game of two halves – NCC A came up against a very determined Foxwood H team and the visitors stormed into an unassailable 6-0 lead, despite some very close games.

However, at that point, not to be discouraged NCC A proceeded to win the last four to make the result more respectable.
