Both teams started in identical fashion, by beating Sussex 5-1. The boys followed this up by beating Essex by the same score.

Victory over Essex was closer than the scoreline suggests, as the Kent boys took three, third-set wins in this match.

The girls comprehensively beat Hampshire and IOW 6-0 to join the boys in a last-day showdown with Middlesex for a regional win.

Both teams battled incredibly well and were so close to winning both matches.However Middlesex Girls edged three, third-set wins themselves to clinch the match 4-2.
