Four out of five of the teams were in action this weekend.
Saturday's matches included a Mixed 2 at home featuring Ian Marchant & Linda Wallis and Teresa Taylor & Paul Marchant who was making his debut for the club.
Ian and Linda encountered two close matches winning the first in a tie-break and then narrowly losing the second.
Paul and Teresa didn't gain a win despite playing very well. Swanage lost 1:3
The Men's team were also in action at home against Shaftesbury.
Nathan and Jeff gained a comfortable win in both of their matches. After gaining their first match and a set in the second, drama ensued for the second pair (Graham Ward and Mike Angell) as Graham suffered an injury and couldn't play on.
Swanage had done enough to gain a win.
The Ladies 1 were in action at Bournemouth Gardens on Sunday and faced a formidable Bournemouth squad. Sam and Meg attempted to get to grips with the an incredibly strong pairing but were swept aside by this aggressive attacking side, losing without gaining a game.
Diana and Sue also failed to make an impression on this pair (who we will surely be seeing at Wimbledon soon)!!!!
Meg and Sam bounced back from their defeat to gain a convincing win against their second pairing 6:0, 6:4. Diana and Sue did gain games and pushed Bournemouth to deuces but didn't do enough to get a win.
Swanage lost 1:3.
The newly formed Ladies 2 ventured to Sway for their very first match. Despite playing really well and having some very close games Patti Sandham and Georgina Thomas (first pairing) didn't claim a victory in either of their matches.
Annie Whitehouse and Pat Weller struggled to find consistency but did have some good rallies and games. Swanage lost 0:4 but did enjoy their first outing as a team.
