Ruth Ballantyne (Blewbury) and Sarah Widdowson (Virgin Active) won both matches as Oxfordshire made a winning start to their 50 & Over Senior Inter-County League Division 3 campaign with a 6-2 victory against Dorset.

Liz Gilkes (Woodstock) and Ana Coggan (Cholsey) triumphed in their first clash, but lost 10-8 in the final-set tie-break against the Dorset first pair.

Next for the ladies is a home match with league leaders Cambridge on June 1.
