Nonetheless, Ryde C top the table with Ryde Delinquents in second spot, and both look hard groups to beat, with simple triumphs this week against Shanklin An and Ryde Goshawks. Finalists in the English Associations Public Junior Competition – Ryan Cates and Lewis Johnstone – play for Ryde C and the Delinquents separately, and, alongside their partners, will push to hold Ryde A back from taking best position once more.

In Division 2, Newport Vics C proceeded with their great structure with a 9-1 win over Ryde Allsorts, albeit youthful Jye Lock played especially well to take a success over Newport’s Paul Harper.
Wootton Drifters met Ryde Revelers, and this demonstrated a firmly battled match, which continued until quite a bit later, with many tight games which might have gone one way or the other. Wootton’s Neil Fences was player of the match and unbeaten however was taken to 5 sets by the Reveler’s Nicky Dando and Gourav Shah.

In Division 3, Newport Vics D proceeded with their initial predominance with a 7-3 win over Ryde Rustics, with Newport’s Debbie Yates player of the match 92-year-old Bert Paice demonstrating her hardest rival.
Ryde Retailer’s 12-year-old Joseph Renouf partook in an extraordinary win over Shorwell Spinner’s Tom Biles, albeit each set went to deuce, so it was an extreme counterpart for the two players. The Retailers dominated the game 7-3.
