A hotly contested series of games were played on Tuesday, 1st June at Watford's grounds.  Basked in glorious sunshine it was pretty much neck and neck all day with each team winning the opening doubles and so it was until the final match.    Ultimately Watford won 10-8 but Enfield East did the Club proud.  Captained by Frances Broadway, the team was Nicola Hyde, Ian Moore and Kim Taylor.
