New pairing Chris Holland and Jenny Gidding beat the Baron's first and third pair and went to three against the second pair where they lost 21-19 in the final game.

Scratch pair Jessen Chen and Esther Westwood played nine games in all as each set went to three but unfortunately they did not manage to win one despite their being no lack of effort.
