Lane and Ledge Ditch the L Plates


It was a very busy night at Collyer's on Friday. Alongside the regular matchplay evening there was the start of a new TTKidz programme and a Set4Success Inter-Business Charity fundraising competition. So the hall was packed and it presented a great sight of community level table tennis at its best. 

Consider too that this later section of the night followed on from a busy primary schools league and an increasingly successful ladies coaching night and the 7pm changeover time starts to resemble a London railway station at peak time. Long may such Ping busy-ness continue.

With fewer tables to play with the decision was made to go a bit format funky. Players were paired up so as to even out ability and experience and the scores suggested this approach worked well. The stronger players in a team match played each other in a 7-up game, so did the weaker ones and the third mini-game was on a doubles basis.

Well done to Jude Lane and Steve Ledger for winning six out of their seven team matches to finish as clear winners of the process followed by joint second placed outfits Alex Power / Leon Lukose and Tim Clennell / Nick Davies. Particular commendation to Nick as a debutant. Saluations to Michelle Kaniuk for teaming up with Bilal Rehman-Furs to be part of three team wins on her first showing too.
