Careys Covers are the early leaders on 12 points as they demolished their opposition on Wednesday night.

Phil Hartwich and Steve Jardine went on a special training program but it will require some tweaking before the next match.

J Ward also looked strong after a ten-game win over First National.

Tim Hartwich has lifted after his elevation to number three while Adam Flemming has been a good recruit.

Signtek is also unbeaten after a good win against Gasons.

Shannon McGrath won all his sets with his big top spin working well.

Finally, Christians Buses came through with a one-game win over FixIT.

Tahni Skewes performed well in her first game for the Bus Company, while Michael Hope and Kelvin Donnan were looking good until Marcus Matthews and Riley Gason fought back with a 6-2 victory, leaving FixIT one game short.
