The day started with 4 doubles where Cornwall won 3, and 1 match was drawn, so a good start.

Everybody contributed making it a successful competition for the Cornwall team.
The team from Cornwall consisted of Tanis Boxall, Fiona Russell, Graham Varcoe, Rob Adams, Janet Bell, Keith Wakeford, Kathryn Smyth and Kathleen Moorshead
The weather was very cold and dry in the morning, turning a little warmer in the afternoon.
