1. Club Captains’/Match Reports

Two men’s and one mixed team had been entered into the Rutland and Stamford League during the 2010/2011 season. The men’s A team came top of the league and the men’s B team finished bottom of the same league. The B team had, at times, struggled for team members and on a number of occasions had only been able to play with two pairs. However it had enabled many more club members to play league matches. The mixed team finished third in the first division, having had a poor start to the season, but improved significantly in the second half.
