Well done the three of you who made it to court and kept the Taunton League flag flying. Will the league survive the autumn and winter months? We really hope so. From small acorns, big things grow. If you can spread the word we would be so grateful!

Group Summary:

A very small group and just a couple of matches - but they were nice ones! Both Bruno and Jamie came away with wins so end the round equal on points. But Bruno beat Jamie to top the group!
