In second place,a point behind. are current Premier Doubles champions,Hoath A. Undefeated in 6 games and having dropped just two points the Champions will be a hard act to beat.
Two points behind Hoath A are Iron Room A.They had scored 5 victories in a row but went down surprisingly 1-3 against Faversham A. Their next two games are against the top two and the outcome of these doubles games will determine how serious Iron Room’s challenge will be.

From seven games they have won six games,losing only to Heron B in straight sets.
The latter side are 3 points behind Iron Room but have suffered two 3-0 defeats at the hands of Natives A and Rough Common.
