Greenland and Calnan won all three of their matches to cement a welcome success after Oxon’s opening defeat to Sussex on Monday.
No 1 pair Jon Maskens & Joe Cartledge won two out of three, including a 6-1, 6-0 victory over their Hereford counterparts.
And No 2 pair Nigel Matthews & Harry Brown also won 2-1 but had to work harder, all three matches going to three sets.
