Diss have retained the South Norfolk Indoor League trophy which they first won during the inaugural year of the competition during 2015.
The 10-week competition, played at Long Stratton Leisure Centre, saw five sides battle it out for the trophy. Diss secured the title during the final round of matches as they beat Hethersett & Tas Valley, who could have won the title going into the fixture.
Hardingham finished third with four wins from their eight games. Cringleford Lodge finished fourth with two wins and Brooke, who were new to the competition, finished fifth despite winning two out of three of their final matches.
The 2016 tournament saw 49 players take part across the five teams, which was a significant increase from the 2015 competition.
New additions to the competition, organised by the Norfolk Cricket Board and sponsored by South Norfolk Council, included a new scoreboard, new stumps, flashing bails and music during the evening.
