Note: This result is disputed. At the point it was decided to end the 2011 league, some teams had not played all their matches (a common problem until an enforced deadline was introduced). One of the outstanding matches was The Cottage vs the King's Head (second in the table). This match was played after the league finished (and no score sheet was ever submitted) with the King's Head winning. This is why the website reflects the Cottage's victory and the division 1 trophy has the King's Head as league champions.
No singles tournament.
