certain to retain the title.

Division 3 behind Alsager A.

Draycott B are assured of Men Division 1 tennis next season and are almost certainly sure to be joined by Florence B, who also

issues that could well go to the wire.

Florence have won the first title of the season by securing the Mixed Division. In the ladies Basford
seem certainties to retain their championship.
||Men 1 Getting Interesting:

the title and 4 teams facing a relegation dog fight.
||July 9th - English Double?:
Tim Henman winning Wimbledon and England winning the World Cup on July 9th? There's more chance of Reading
winning this years Premiership. Nalbandian and Argentina, Nadal and Spain are better bets but at least there's
no chance of a Scottish double - Scotland didn't qualify for the World Cup and Murray's fitness levels are
worse than Ronaldo's.

and Stone B going well in Men 3. Alsager A have played 9 and won 9 in Men 4. Alsager FR A, Abbey View B
and Endon D all look doomed in Mens 1,2 and 3 respectively.
