The women's Premier League kicks back into action tomorrow for the first time since 3 November with Slough, Olton and West Warwick and Fyffes Leicester all on 16 points at the top, separated on goal difference.

Slough, with a game in hand, are in pole position. The Berkshire side, looking to retain their title, as they did in the Indoor game last week, travel to Clifton who have strengthened their squad with the signing of Liz Monks, a doctor from Tasmania who is working in Bath.

Leicester and Olton both have home fixtures, against Canterbury and Chelmsford respectively. Olton boosted their ranks by signing the England Under-21 player Laura Hughes from Sunderland.

Fourth placed Ipswich, three points behind the leading trio, will parade their new South African recruits, Anli Kotze and Kate Heed, when they entertain Hightown. Ipswich will be missing Sarah Bamfield with a knee injury. Hightown, who have lost pace with the leading teams, entertain Chelmsford this afternoon in a rearranged fixture.

Division Two of the men's league also resumes tomorrow with the leaders, Bowdon, taking on Indian Gymkhana. Second-placed Nottingham entertain Blueharts, yet to win this season, and welcome back Robert Kilpatrick from their neighbours Beeston.
