Meanwhile, Ryde A met Ryde Royals in an equally close game with some of the island’s best talent on display. The Royal’s Hugh Idle retained his 100% record despite Team A’s Mark Turner leading him to five sets. Idle teammates Ricky Lock and Conal Howells were unable to secure a victory, despite having had close matches against Lee Orton, Rob Smith and Turner.

Despite an easy doubles victory for the Royals, Team A won 6-4.
