WETHERBY Castlegarth sealed the division two title in the IT Sports Mixed Doubles Tennis League - but eight other championships have yet to be decided.

Castlegarth claimed top spot after their latest win against Stamford Bridge, led by top-scoring couple Angela Crossley and James Landau.

Heworth added another two wins to stay top of division three, with Andy Ward and Monika Fitz leading the scoring at Copmanthorpe and Louise Haritakis and Nick Latchman dropping just four games against Fulford.

Cliffe had their promotion hopes dented after losing to visitors Bishopthorpe, although Kelly Holmes and Dave Tomlinson were unbeaten. They then bounced back to win a close match at Dunnington to stay in the promotion frame.

York closed in on the division five title with a win at Sutton-on-Derwent, whose Anna Morley and Stuart Turner were unbeaten.

Pat Woodward and Margaret Stamford kept Riccall in the second promotion place with a final 12-0 to win at Cawood.

Bishopthorpe lost ground on the leaders with a defeat at Poppleton, who needed the points to save them from relegation.

Division six is wide open as last week’s top two both lost.

Leaders Stamford Bridge stayed top but went down to Tollerton, with Ellen Strabel and Josh Hunt the only unbeaten pair.

Appleton Roebuck dropped to fourth as Jean Jaram and Graham Waind clinched the win for York, who moved into second place on games difference ahead of Alne.

Alne’s Angie Pearson and Rob Proudley were unbeaten with 32 games as they beat New Earswick.

Wilberfoss are the fourth team on 12 points after a win over Dunnington, led by the unbeaten Ros Latham and Darren Penrose.

In division seven, previous leaders Copmanthorpe lost to Stillington as they could find no answer to the unbeaten Emily Sutton and Tim Adams.

Stillington added another win at Sutton-on-Derwent, led by Anne Barfoot and Julian Terry.

Wheldrake’s Emmy Richardson and Jason Watson won an impressive 30 games against Wistow to take them out of the relegation area.

David Lloyd hold the key to relegation and promotion in division eight as they play their rain affected matches in the next few weeks.

Liz Taylor and Alistair Baron won 31 games to swap places with opponents Cliffe and move into second place.

Fulford lost to visitors Tollerton, who were led by top scorers Sandra Jennings and Neil Hawkins.

Previous leaders Heworth dropped to second in division nine despite top-scoring Liz Fullick and Andy King sealing a win at Rufforth.

Bishopthorpe 3 added another two wins - against their fourth team and then against Dunnington, Krysia Clack and Jason Levesley emerging unbeaten.

Cliffe stayed in the promotion race thanks to Nikki Jackson and Dave Hall junior winning an impressive 25 games against Bishopthorpe 4.

New Earswick have secured the division ten title after all three couples won 30 games or more at Alne, with Nicky Conyers and Keith Pearson dropping just two games.

Wilberfoss 3 still look favourite for the second promotion place despite losing to Rufforth.
