|Throwing in game 1|
In my first game I was teamed up with Richard J to take on Barbara and Joan. Richard had won the first session of the season so was undefeated in his three games so far. It was also the first-time we'd been paired together, but what a team we made, picking up the victory 13-4.

Next up was a game against Emily and Hilary J. For this contest I was paired with Andrew and in a close match we won 13-11.
My final game of the afternoon was a three-on-two game pitting me and David C against the trio of Cath, Hilary J and Jean W. The match was also the last to finish as we battled to a 13-8 victory, the scoreline not showing how close the game actually was.
