Tournament Heats

A lot of interesting matches played in an excellent spirit, very professionally planned and run by
Cameron Brealey and his team of helpers. 7 events were run through to the Semifinal stage, leading to the prospect of a Finals Night on Saturday 4th May at Itchen Abbas & Avington Village Hall that promises to be as good as ever. That's even though the current senior and Junior Singles champions, Ed Slot and Jared Schaller, missed today's Heats. Medstead, Kings, Swanmore, Five Tees and IBM were all well represented in terms of numbers and good-quality players.

Results

(Players through to the Finals on 4th May are highlit in bold text)
Sandpaper Bat Singles
A novelty event calling for patience and adaptability, based on the 'World Championships of Ping-Pong' as seen on Sky TV a few weeks ago.
Semifinal 1: Cameron Brealey beat Andy Prince
Semifinal 2: Tom Wood beat Cameron Aris
Veterans
Newcomer Micky Lang stood out for his unusual techniques involving extremely high-thrown serves and heavily-spun high lobs launched from close to the floor. Let's hope the Itchen Abbas rafters are high enough!
Semifinal 1: Micky Lang beat Paul May 11-7, 11-8, 11-7
Semifinal 2: Andy Prince beat Sorin Lakatos 11-6, 11-8, 11-4
Doubles
Ben Tombs is a quick and skilful Winchester University undergraduate who's been representing Medstead A this season
Semifinal 1: Cameron Brealey and Paul May beat Andy Prince and Geoff Cockroft 11-7, 11-4, 11-9
Semifinal 2: Andrew Bawden and Ben Tombs beat David Wills and Micky Lang 6-11, 11-6, 11-9, 13-11
Handicap
The Handicapping Committee have given Steve Coltman a +13 start for the Final! Not easy to set a handicap between such different types of players.
Semifinal 1: Steve Coltman (+4) beat Barry Dobson 21-16, 17-21, 18-21
Semifinal 2: Ben Tombs beat Jay Jadeja (+7) 21-16, 21-16
Open Singles
Ben Tombs perhaps surprisingly lost to Bobby Zhou, who in turn lost to Andy Prince. Paul May has been runner-up twice to Ed Slot in the Final - can he overcome David Wills this time? They've won one each in the League this season.
Semifinal 1: David Wills beat Andy Prince 11-7, 11-2, 4-11, 13-11
Semifinal 2: Paul May beat Andrew Bawden 11-3, 11-5, 11-2
Division 2
Group 1: Sorin Lakatos beat Kevin Muldowney, Jay Jadeja and Steve Brown
Group 2: Antony Moore beat Hitender Razora, Iliya Dimitrov, Allan Bransgrove and Richard Anderson
Division 3
Group 1: Barry Dobson beat Sanjay Nagchowdhury, Steve Coltman and Martin Goldstein
Group 2: Tom Wood beat Jill Wilson, Quentin Brook and Martin Healey

Liam Pitchford Vs World Number 3 Dmitri Ovtcharov in Czech Open - see highlights here
Liam recently moved to 16th place in the ITTF World rankings, the highest by an England player since 1980.
Week 21/21

Division 1

IBM A 7-3 Kings A
Jared Schaller put in a superb performance here, beating everyone in a Kings A team that included the current Singles Champion, Ed Slot. IBM A's win is compensation of a sort for losing the final of the Team Eliminating Cup to Kings A a week earlier!

Medstead A 7-3 Five Tees A
It's still theoretically possible for Five Tees A to grab the Runner-up spot after this result, but Medstead A would have to collapse rather dramatically in their 2 outstanding matches for that to happen. Ben Tombs won all 3 Singles, including a tight 5-setter against Singles finalist David Wills.

Division 2

Kings C 2-8 IBM B
3 teams are still all trying to tread each other down in the scramble for the promotion Play-off place. IBM B nailed down an important plank in their campaign with this emphatic win, but they still have to face another of the 3 scramblers, Swanmore A, in a deferred match. 3 wins for Hitender Razora, playing for IBM B.

South Wonston B 5-5 Winnall
Juniors Danny Klinger and Dom Goddard put in some serious work for South Wonston B, winning the Doubles together and 2 Singles each. Winnall have been fulfilling some postponed fixtures to good effect recently, turning an 8-2 defeat at the hands of Medstead B into a 9-1 victory in the return match, with the same sets of players on each side!

Five Tees C 10-0 Swanmore A
The gulf between the top team, Five Tees C, and the rest of the Division was abundantly illustrated, at least in terms of the match score. Look a bit more closely, though, and you'll see a rash of 4-setters and even 3 5-setters. A long night's work for no League points for Runners-up contenders Swanmore A! 3 wins each for Len Field, Sorin Lakatos and Keith Charbit-Middleton.

South Wonston A 7-3 Medstead B
The Lee brothers Adam and Oliver won 3 each and the Doubles for South Wonston A, who are in the mix for the promotion Play-off place with Swanmore A and IBM B.

Division 3

Owslebury 1-9 IBM C
IBM C and Owslebury have kept up a friendly rivalry all season, each side having won once, drawn once and lost once. 3 wins each for Jeet Banerjee, Sanjay Nagchowdhury and Division 3 Singles finalist Tom Wood

Swanmore B 2-8 Five Tees D
Five Tees D will be in the promotion Playoff, since all of the leading Division 3 teams have finished their programme and cannot be caught. Graham Lynch was the only Five Tees D player to come through unscathed, with 3 Singles wins and a contribution to the Doubles.

Kings D 2-8 Hursley
Hursley's Martin Ceresa and Barry Dobson won all their 3 Singles and the Doubles in straight sets, so a resounding end of the Season for them, and an earlyish night for everyone!
