YMCA played their last game of the season versus Watlington, needing to secure maximum points to stay at the top of the table and put pressure on the rest of the teams.
This is exactly what they did with a 6-0 win. Watlington were unlucky not to come away with at least one rubber and game of the day belonged to Gemma Clarke and Penny Carter for YMCA and Vicky Wass and Janet Marsden for Watlington. At 1-1 and playing in the third game, YMCA were 17–14 down and managed to find the resolve to come back and win the game.
Norfolk player Jessi Bateman and partner Janis Baker were unbeaten all season heading into this game, and after losing their first game 21-10 to Watlington’s Emma Littler and Moira Hough they changed their tactics and ensured that they came through 2-1 and maintaining their unbeaten record.
