North Harbour 2 narrowly missed making A Grade after a too close finish with Wellington going down 4-3.  The team of Victor Pollett, Lewis Tai, Leroy Gov playing the singles matches and Ray Dulangon/Victor Pollett the doubles combination.  NHTTA started the match well with Victor taking 2 singles and Leroy 1 singles to go to 3-3.  The last match saw Lewis Tai versus Callum Rusbridge with Lewis taking the first 2 games, but Callum fought his way back to 2-2.  The 5th game went right down to the wire with Callum winning 12-10 in the 5th game.  Tremendous effort by this team.

North Harbour 3 had their work cut out for them in their grading match against Waitemata 1.  The team of Doug Pattinson, Blake Lovie, Bozidar Zutic playing the singles matches and Bozidar Zutic/David Baker the doubles combination.  The team lost 4-2, with one of the closest matches between Doug Pattinson and Max Rogers going 11-9 in the 5th game Waitemata's way.
