Ipswich Ladies are on the up at the moment, while the men are currently struggling.

The men faced Cambridge and Newmarket at the weekend and left with two defeats, 3-0 and 3-1, despite a promising performance against the former.

As for the ladies, they made the long trip to face Telford and top-of-the-table team Black Country.

They lost to Telford, despite winning the first set comfortably, but missed out in the next three sets, going down 3-1.

Better was to follow though against the Black Country, the ladies winning 3-1, after the game had been evenly-poised at 1-1.
