Division 2 perennial Runners-Up St Leonards B top the Division by 8 points with a match in hand. Their match against Otter Vale A ended in farcical circumstances. The match score was 5-1 to the Saints when the match had to be abandoned due to a dangerous, slippery floor. This meant the home team had to concede the unplayed rubbers to Otter Vale, who gratefully accepted the points. Before the “abandonment” the Saints pairs of Adrian Midmer/Andy Rowe and Sam Maltby/Adrian Wijay had won 2 rubbers apiece to secure the win St Leonards C team were hit by a post Christmas sickness bug and were unable to raise a team for their inhouse derby against their B team. The B team gratefully accepted the 9-0 win with no shuttles hit in anger. The C team recovered to put out a full complement of players for the match against Exeter B.
