Through to the semi-finals and up against a very strong South African side. Despite some closely fought matches we lost 3-0 with South Africa being the eventual winners. So through to the 3rd/4th play off against the home nation Belgium. Judy won the first singles with a convincing win. This was followed by an extremely close singles with Jo winning 11-9 in the 3rd set tie break to win the tie 2-0. A friendly doubles match for Judy and Karen was played after this.
