Judy Tierney and June Fisher notched up a 6-3, 6-0 win against Draycott pair Sarah Pirie and Helen Watson Jones, while Basford team-mates Pam Smith and Mary Hobson beat Louise Chandler and Natasha Boulton 7-6, 6-2. Leading 2-0 after the opening matches, Basford secured an unassailable lead when Smith and Hobson narrowly defeated Pirie and Watson Jones 7-5, 6-4. Meanwhile, Tierney and Fisher were one-set all against Chandler and Boulton when both sides agreed to split the rubber and earn half a point each.
