The gentlemen took the honours against the ladies when the Caversham B squad staged a practice match before the start of their SCF GC One Court Clubs’ Advantage League campaign.
Tim Small and David Dibben shared a game apiece — 7-3, 5-7 — against Carol Jamieson and Anne Small, but the men were 5-1 ahead in the decider when the match was cut short by time constraints.
Anne and Carol start the defence of their title on Thursday with a local derby against the Caversham C pairing of Pam Briggs and Jane Probitts.
On the following Thursday Tim and David visit Basingstoke Cavaliers.
