Sunningdale will have a 50 shot deficit to make up when they travel to Wokingham for the second leg of their Manley Cup match. 

They lost heavily in the first leg, save for a winning rink from David Evans, Brian Munden and Don Allston (skip).

The club's fortunes did not greatly improve when Great Hollands visited them in the week and condemned them to defeat. 

Sole winning rink was played by Alf Chell, Pat Isted and John Forster (skip).

The ladies produced a better result away to Staines (31-26). The best of thei rinks was played by Margaret Ward, Jill Calaghan and Kathy Edwards (skip).

In the Thames Valley League Sunningdale were awarded all 10 points from their home match against Palmer Park, despite the game being halted after 10 ends due to extreme heat with Sunningdale leading 37-20. 

Margaret Ward, Pat Istead and Margaret Nutley (skip) took top rink honours.

Pam Kiddell, Kathey Edwards and skip Marjorie Walklett made it through in the county triples after convincingly beating Maidenhead Town.

However, Sunningdale crashed to a heavy defeat against Windsor & Eton in the Kennet League, with Windsor collecting all 14 points on offer.
