In a very close match played at the Newport Club on Saturday 3rd October, Hunstanton ran out the overall winners in a three way tie between Newport, Enfield and Hunstanton, reports manager on the day Terrey Sparks.
Hunstanton made a slow start in the morning in the doubles round, failing to record a win, whilst Enfield made a strong start with 2 wins followed by Newport on 1. However, during the afternoon Enfield’s fortunes began to fade as Hunstanton started to put on the pressure by making better progress, winning 3 of their remaining 4 games of singles. At the same time Newport also recovered by winning 2 of their remaining games, whilst Enfield limped in with only 1 win.
This meant that the day's play finished on a 3 way tie for each team, giving the Manager a problem to solve. Turning to the league regulations, the first option of ‘who beat whom’ could not be applied as each team had beaten each other. So the next option as the team with the fewest wins in time was applied. In this case Hunstanton were on nil, Enfield on 1 and Newport on 2. So Hunstanton were declared the winners.
