Bramley B, in the Second Division, would have been surprised to have found themselves at the bottom of the table but that is unlikely to happen again after a 9-1 trouncing of Woking LTC B. Geoff Nevitt and Linda Makepeace were unbeaten for Bramley with Mike Willimott only losing to Ahmad Matoorian. Bramley C moved into second spot on the back of a 7-3 against Cranleigh A. Kerry East and Nevitt playing for his normal team grabbed all the points. Godalming E are just behind the promotion places after a tight 6-4 win over Burymead D. Carsten Horne, Mike May and Jason Minoo each won twice for Godalming as did Jack Harrington for Burymead.

The leadership in the Fourth Division seems to change every week and the current leaders after a 6-4 win is Emmanuel. They edged past a two-man Burymead E outfit thanks to an unbeaten pair from Stephen Schofield. Mike Dray and Bob Sacre each won their other singles for Burymead. Woking LTC D are one of the favourites for promotion and they easily beat close rivals Godalming L 8-2. Mervyn Newell and Alex Bolychevsky were unbeaten for Woking with Malcolm Hollett getting a brace. Cranleigh B proved too strong for Godalming N, winning 8-2 with Chris Ray and John Davies notching trios.
