There were some very close matches in the quarter finals, with Aldermaston 2 nearly completing another giant killing, as they led Wellington 1 by two matches to nil and were leading 2/0 in one of the remaining matches. However, Wellington 1 fought back and won 3/2 (14/8) to progress. Aldermaston 1 also had a great match against Nuffield 1, again narrowly winning 3/2, again 14/8 including the 5 bonus points.
Wellington 2 were also very unlucky not to beat Maidenhead 1, with 11 games having less than a 3 point margin! Whilst Reading University only won one tie against Charters Arena, two matches went the distance, so they too can count themselves very unlucky.
In the plate competition there were unfortunately 3 walk-overs given, but Caversham BCSC appeared to have fun in their first versus seconds clash, with the first team narrowly winning 3/2.
Again, feedback was generally extremely positive for this new tournament format, with players often commenting on the more friendly and fun nature of the competition.
