A winter midweek evening floodlit league, in which we have been participating since 2009/10. Despite the title of the league, as we currently lack floodlighting we play a majority of our home matches at weekends in the daytime. However, where opponents are unable to play at weekends we play our home matches “away”, this being a condition of our inclusion in the league.
Ingatestone men won Division 7 in 9/10, Division 6 in 11/12, Division 5 in 12/13, Division 4 in 13/14 and Division 6 in 16/17.
Ingatestone mixed team won Division 5 in 10/11, 12/13 and 15/16.
Ingatestone women claimed the Division 5 title in 15/16.
