Women's Premier Division (London Volleyball League)
While White Bears and IMKA go to the wire
The women's Premier Division restarted with three matches on the same day: 7th January. None of the games seem to have gone to form showing that strong competition remains. Two days later QKX firmly showed Inter why they are above them in the league table.

East have lost only once all season but it was in five sets to Onyx in the opening game and they demonstrated from early on that they were determined on revenge. Onyx played well enough but the home side stamped their authority on the evening and won deservedly.

Jamme Ja had beaten Rebels too, back in late November, but it had been a close match. Another tense one expected, it turned out very different and, although they allowed their visitors back into the match somewhat in the third set, they always seemed to have enough in reserve and duly moved up the table.

Before their game, White Bears were propping up the table with all their rivals above them and with a points total in double figures. Seemingly encouraged by winning the opening set, they refused to allow Polonia IMKA to settle and, in a sea of swinging fortunes, came through in five sets and arrive within a point of the two teams above them with a game in hand over IMKA.

Two days later, QKX travelled to Inter where the hosts looked determined not to be landed with another draw, having tied 2:2, 96:96 when the teams clashed on 29th September. They showed little mercy in winning in three brief sets.

Lionhearts East beat Onyx, 21:15 21:17 21:17
Rebels beat Lionhearts Jamme Ja, 21:14 21:10 21:18
White Bears beat Polonia IMKA, 21:13 18:21 21:18 21:23 15:7
Inter lost to QKX, 12:21 7:21 12:21
