OXFORDSHIRE’S men, inspired by third pair Tom Greenland & Benedict Calnan, recorded their first victory in Group 5 of the Aegon Summer County Cup at West Worthing with a 7-2 triumph over Hereford & Worcester.
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.
Oxfordshire’s ladies fell to their second consecutive Group 6 defeat at Ilkley, Yorkshire, losing 6-3 to Cornwall, following Monday’s 7-2 loss to Cambridgeshire.
