GC Level League - numbers stay the stay the same at 6 with Blewbury's new entry replacing the withdrawn Ryde 'B' who will participate in the Handicap league instead this season.
GC Handicap League - A new entry from Ryde 'B' adds one to the competition making 14, necessitating an alteration in the North/South split with Basingstoke being moved to the North division for 2017.
GC Doubles Only League - Numbers stay the same at 6 with new entries from Bransgore 'C' and Wingrave, replacing Ryde 'D' and White Horse who have dropped out this time round.
For Association, Martin Brandt reports:
AC A-Level League (Advanced) - Two new entries from High Wycombe and Winchester swell numbers from 3 to 5, which is great news.
AC B-Level League (Advanced) - The number stays the same at 5 with High Wycombe's new entry taking the place of Phyllis Court who have dropped out.
AC Handicap League - The same 12 teams will contest the competition in 2017, again in North and South Divisions with a final to decide the title. A survey of participants is being undertaken to decide the desirability of introducing a semi-finals stage or to stay with the current arrangement of a straight final.
