The Lyme Regis men had a rest from league duty this week as it coincided with the Bank Holiday, writes Paul Moffitt.

The ladies played at home to Gillingham and could manage only two points.

In four friendly matches the club managed a 50/50 split in fortunes.

However, they did suffer a heavy defeat against the touring team of Leicester Cavaliers.

Paul Pomeroy together with Barr and Angela Rattenbury travelled to Winchester to take part in the ‘Bert Lucus’ triples open competition, being one of twenty-one teams. They managed to take the title winning the final against a familiar Winchester trio.
