Current League Secretary's Report

In the Mens division 1 Regal Arts are virtually one win away from taking the topflight title. After a crushing home win against Loughborough Town only Loughborough Leys could catch them, but they would need a significant rubbers haul from their three remaining matches. In division 3, SSC are staging a remarkable end of season attempt to catch long time leaders South Leicestershire. They require three wins and 22 rubbers from their last three matches – well within their capabilities. Central maintain their lead at the top of division 4a; Ajay Pitrola and Krishna Masri with a maximum in the win against Oadby. Unbeaten Huncote now look favourites to win division 4b after a fine away win at Quorn.

In the topflight Mixed division Loughborough Town take the title after defeating neighbours Loughborough Students; quite an achievement after being promoted last season. In division 3 South Leicestershire thirds make it seven from seven as they edged the Students seconds and looked poised for the title. A surprise result in division 4 saw leaders Croakers suffer a 9-0 defeat against South's fourth squad leaving the latter an opportunity to snatch the title with two wins and twelve rubbers in their remaining two matches. Already assured of promotion from division 5a Quorn wrap up the season undefeated.

In the Ladies topflight division the question of relegation has now been answered with Longslade the unfortunate losers. In division 2 Longslade seconds secured safety after a narrow win against Central, whilst in division 3 Melton go top for the first time this season after back to back victories; Linda Hallam for Melton undefeated in both encounters.

In the Hall league the Students close in on the division 1 title, as do Quorn in division 3.
