The match was played at Dulwich on Thursday 7th August. A weekday was chosen as weekends in August are congested but this did lead to both teams being weakened.

The day was interrupted with short sharp spells of heavy rain and this certainly affected the doubles. Don and Stephen were a game and 3-0 up when the rain came. They then only won 6 of the next 20 points!!
