In a 72-47 success against Taunton Vivary the top rink was Joan Mackintosh, Di Hawkins, Tony Williams, and Scott Eveleigh (38-7).

In the county competition for mixed triples Yvonne Rayner, Tony Tooley and Trevor Pipe have won Section Three and will play in the quarter-finals against the winners of Section Six later in the season.

The men’s Over-60s triples team have endured ups and downs in their respective matches.

The A team lost 37-1 to Tiverton West End, but did have a winning rink courtesy of Mike Uniacke, Tony Williams and Gerry Stafrace (22-19).

The B team were 40-36 winners against Honiton and they banked seven points from this encounter before, against Exonia they battled to a memorable 36-32 victory and with it all eight points to boost their bid for divisional honours.
