Hunters 1st team (Coventry League) played their first home match of the season, hosting Stockingford 1st of Nuneaton, at Bilton School. David Pugh stepped into the team for the first time, and paired with Michal Helis for the initial rubber. Stockingford’s first pair were very strong, and took the first comfortably. Hunter’s second pair of Lee Rickard and Simon Piercy, and the third pair of Phil Pelton and Shahid Mirza fared better, both winning their opening rubbers.

The fourth rubber matched Lee and Simon against Stockingford’s first pair, and despite winning a game, Stockingford took the rubber in the decider. However the next two rubbers went to Hunters, putting Hunters in a 4-2 lead, and needing one more rubber for victory. In the seventh, Phil and Shahid fought a close match, but again Stockingford’s first pair were stronger in the decider, moving the score to 4-3.

In the eighth, Michal and David won a tough game, securing the win for Hunters, and Simon and Lee comfortably won the last rubber to make it convincing 6-3 victory on the night.
