The Datchworth is a competitive but friendly tennis league, with 128 teams from 33 Hertfordshire clubs.
My apologies to Orchard 1 - I mentioned last week that they hadn't dropped a set and they promptly lost 3-0 last night! If any other teams would like me to mention how well their upcoming opponents are doing in an attempt to jinx them, please send me a large cheque made payable to Rupe's Holiday Fund and I'll see what I can do :)
This season's tightest group is currently 4A, where just 5 sets separate top from bottom. That could be fun to keep an eye on. Wheathampstead 5 and Odyssey 3 are currently leading the league in sets won, having both dropped just one each, although I fully expect them to get thumped next week having mentioned it here!
Sadly we had a void match in both Weeks 1 and 2. Please, please, please don't rely on the opposition to enter the result of your match. Make sure someone in your team completes a scorecard and enters the result.

Please encourage Datchworth players at your club to sign up for e-mail newsletters (see the bottom of the left hand side of this page) as it will help them to keep in touch with any useful info that is sent out. As you know, we don't need to send out very many newsletters during the year, so it shouldn't take up much space in their inbox.
