Wivenhoe A look totally dominant in Division One having dropped seven games in four matches. The other four teams in the division have one victory apiece. Lexden Hill A defeated Spring Lane A 5-4 with Adam Gadenne and Dave Peek winning two tie breaks to turn the match Lexden's way. Having been on the losing end of a tie break against the Officer's Club B in a 5-4 defeat this win was vital in what could be a four way relegation battle. Dedham B are top of Division Two after a 8-1 win against Spring Lane B. Kirby B have lost their first match, 6 1/2-2 1/2 to Lexden Hill B which has made it tight at the top of Division Three. David Lloyd A are yet to drop a set at the top of Division Four and their B team are similarly dominant in Division Five.

In the Ladies Premier Division, Frinton A are unbeaten after four matches. Their latest victories, a 7-2 defeat of Lexden Hill A followed by a 5-4 win over The Essex A where Shiho Main and Anne Cosby won all their sets. Despite this, they trail The Essex A by two points.
