London teams' latest results (National Volleyball League)
Dartford women in dumps again
In a weekend when most of volleyball had its eyes on the Cup and Shield competition last eight matches, there was a small number of league matches.

On Saturday in men's Division Two Richmond enjoyed a good win in four sets at home against Newmarket to keep them safely in second position in the league table.

However, in women's Division One Dartford disappointments continued in an extraordinary match in South Wales. After fortunes had fluctuated wildly for four sets they went down 23:21 in the fifth. They are now one of three teams equal on points above bottom placed Sunderland. They need results to start going their way.

There were six matches on Sunday in men's Division Three, played in three "triangulars". Playing in Gloucester, Giants, with one defeat so far this season kept up the pressure on Surrey Spikers who have also lost just once, first by beating top of the table UK Armed Forces after losing the opening set before beating Gloucester Eagles, also in four sets.

Baks were in Southampton and remain in mid table after losing to Surrey 15:13 in the fifth set before beating their hosts in three.

Playing away as well were Richmond 2 but travel problems meant they forfeited the first set against hosts Wiltshire Mavericks who finally beat them in a 15:12 fifth set to prevent a move higher and towards safely in the league table. However, they rose to the occasion against South Hants, winning in four sets to ensure two teams remain below them.
