2023 Indoor Winter League


The DWC Indoor League completes another successful season, with 11 teams competition across 2 divisions in Exeter. Held at West Exe School, the teams played January to March to see who would play off the the title of indoor Champion, currently held by Taunton Deane CC, who won it last year. 

One of the biggest successes of the indoor league, was the introduction of  3 clubs that have been playing in the softball league - Exmouth (entered 2 teams), Exwick and Thorverton. They played along side the hardball clubs in the two leagues, which were as follows: 


Group 1 Group 2
Bovey Tracey CC Exmouth CC 2
Exeter CC Exeter University 1
Exmouth CC 1 Hatherleigh CC 1
Exwick CC Thorverton CC
Exeter University 2 Topsham St James CC

After several weeks of games, it came to finals day on Sunday 26th March, where the teams in 1st, 2nd and 3rd position in the tables played against each other.
