With the season nearly over most of the divisional titles have been decided with very few surprises in either the singles or doubles league. In the Premier Division Iron Room A will finish as champions with Hoath A as runners up and in the first division the two teams who have led all season will finish in the positions they have held with Herne Bay C as winners and CW2 in second place.

In Division 2 leaders Blue Lawn should finish first with Faversham A second and Faversham D will be crowned Division 3 champions with CW6 second. The fourth division is still uncertain for second place which will be between Choughs F and Herne Bay J but the winners will be CW9 who have an emphatic points lead over their rivals.

Due to the unusual length of the season some games have been played early so the league website is showing results for dates not yet reached but all matches should be finishing before the beginning of May with just a few rearranged games outstanding.

For the first time in a number of years this past season has seen an increase in the number of younger players in the league and some very good prospects amongst them. In the Premier Division Jake Coombes from CW1 has started to show good form and in the First Division Connor Russell has been outstanding and at just 14 years of age he should rapidly progress even further in the Premier Division next year.

In Division 2 there are other younger players that will be playing at a higher level next year including Jacob Midson from the Warriors club and Jordan Brooker and Sam Cooke of Choughs. Other players to watch out for include Joe Kay from Blue Lawn who will be carrying on the family representation plus Jonathan Nevitt and Mano Sathyamurthy from CW9 who won the Division 4 title so convincingly.

Special mention should also be made of some older league players, in particular Brian Kennett of Iron Room who is using his 2,403rd home made bat, the latest one being constructed from the spine of a small reptile that became extinct in the Jurassic period and the skin of a cave dwelling Neanderthal who was found preserved in glacial ice. It’s a terror to play against and rumour has it that Barry Chapman has offered half his vast fortune for the marketing rights.
