They managed to complete the 1st round and consequently win the match against a very young Sevenoaks team before the rain set in. The Bay’s 1st pair, Christine Hanson/Debbie Holden won 6-4, 6-4 and their new 2nd pairing of Sarah Pout/Caroline Mitchell won 6-1, 6-1. With one round completed the match result stands without the need to play the 2nd round at another time. On Sunday the ladies 1st team played a depleted Bearsted 1 in division 1 of the Kent league. Bearsted were only able to send 1 pair to Herne Bay and both the Bay pairs defeated them in straight sets to give a 4-0 overall score. The team was Anne Gibbs/Louise Tucker and Sally Holmes/Gill Dickey.
