Team: Angela Sharman, Di Baker, Xin Cheng, Sandra Dennis, John Pickering, John Harvey, Martyn Clark, Martin Smith.
Mens - Martyn and Martin won the only mens game, but John and John had a very close 3 ender against a strong Leics 1st pair, loosing out 21-19 in the third end.
Ladies - Many thanks to Sandra Dennis for standing-in at the 11th hour, due to an injury to Helen Taylor. Angela and Sandra were 14-10 up when Angela had to retire with an injury to her knee/calf. Hence we had to concede their two ladies games. Di and Xin managed to win one of their games 22-20 and 21-18.
Mixed - Due to Angela's injury we conceded the 2nd mixed game. All of the remaining games unfortunately slipped away from us, with John H and Xin managing a 3 ender.
Final result a 10-2 loss, having had to concede 3 rubbers. Many games were closer than the scoreline suggests.
