Wanstead Central's Ladies triples team of Chris Buck, Viv Leech and Jackie Barham have had a very busy week.

They played three county triples games, beating Buckhurst Hill on Monday and Connaught on Wednesday but lost in the area final against a strong triple from Elsenham on Friday.

In the National mixed pairs, there was a thrilling match between the two Central teams of Kevin Fitzgerald and Janet Fortune against Mark Newman and Wendy Gray.
