In a battle of the Undercliff, the Belters and St Lawrence Lizards played a superb match with the teams finely balanced in skills and experience.

Playing on late into the night, the match was finely poised with all resting on the doubles at the end, which St Lawrence’s Derek Pittard and Tom Flood took in the final set against the Belter’s Nicky Dando and Bryce Wilson, with the match ending in a draw.
