In the Women's competition London Scorpions and Galaxy London have set the early pace, with both clubs winning all their matches in Pools A and B respectively. Scorpions had decent margins against NQ Rebels (6-3), Cambridge (11-2) and Revolution (16-2), but while Galaxy had similar results against Nottingham Hoods (5-2) and Cheltenham (15-0) they were pushed all the way by London Eagles, only winning that 6-5.

Division 2

Womens Division 2 is finely poised after Day 1. Bristol Jets are the only undefeated team having beaten Oxford (3-0), Nottingham Trent University (6-1) and Old Wesley (7-4). But behind them there is all to play for in the chase for the all-important top two spots.

London Vipers and Old Wesley are tied on nine points each, with Nottingham Trent and Oxford both on six. Day 2 has two more rounds of pool matches before the top two teams face each other in the Division final, and with four points on offer for a win there is everything still to play for!
