On Wednesday 12 July, Henley visited High Wycombe BC in a five mixed triples friendly match. The game was interrupted twice by rain which made play more difficult and, although Henley won on three of the rinks, Henley lost 72 – 84. Barrie Davies with Richard Kingston and Glynis Holland were ahead from the start and never lost their lead, running out winners 15-10. Colin Ward with Brian Duddy and Trish Jones faced a very strong opposition and, even though holding shot on various ends, could not stop the game going against them and lost 2-32. Peter Borsberry with Jenny Wingrove and Peter Watkins were well in the lead after ten ends but, after the break for tea & biscuits, they clearly lost concentration and the opposition scored a 6 and a 4 soon after. However, Henley fought back and won 21-16. Jeanie Davies with Ramsay Adams and Frank Powell took an early lead but were outplayed by a strong opposition and could not make up the difference losing 11-22.
