Roehampton hosted Woking and ran out 6-1 winners with Harry Fisher and Joel Taylor in particularly good form. The doubles saw Harry and Mark van Loon take on Jeff Dawson and Mike Town in alternate stroke format. A super shot from Harry was followed by Mark hitting in and the pair progressed to four back. Mike just missed the three balls in a row over on the west boundary and the Roehampton pair followed with a straightforward fifth turn triple, +26TP.

In the morning singles, Joel completed an interesting triple from 1 back and 4 back against Malcolm Bigg having broken down on his first attempt. Completing the 4 back peel before 3 back, he played an excellent Irish peel at penultimate getting the peelee ball within six feet of rover to leave a straightforward last peel, +23TP. He followed that up with a well controlled triple against Annabel McDiarmid in the afternoon, +26TP.

Harry finished his singles against Jeff Dawson before lunch +17TP. Jeff did hit the lift shot and went round to four back and Harry did give him a chance with his second ball, but a slight misapproach at hoop 1 saw Jeff take on and fail a very angled jump shot, which Harry capitalised on.

Mark van Loon had a more interactive game against MIke Town running out a +18 winner. Woking's win came courtesy of Annabel who beat Tim Russell +12 in another interactive game. With Annabel on peg and 4 back, Tim had a good chance when in with a conventional triple but broke down with a failed 35 degree angled jump shot at hoop 5, with the balls well placed. The last match saw Tim beat Malcolm +15. Thanks to the Roehampton groundstaff who again provided fast and true lawns.
