Division 1

Five Tees A 16171.fiveteesavskingsa.2.html Kings A
David Wills won 6 out of 6 this week, scalping 3 of Kings A's best on the Monday and then avenging recent defeats by South Wonston A's Jared Schaller and Morgan Smith on the Wednesday. Kings A and South Wonston A remain firmly anchored in 2nd and 3rd places in Division 1, and that's where they'll stay as the season finally grinds towards the buffers.

Division 2

Hursley 16171.hursleyvswinnall.2.html Winnall
Cliff Chevis was the unquestioned hero of the night, even though he won only 1 match. What the scorecard can't tell you is that this match marked Cliff's 60th year of playing in the Winchester League! He started playing in 1957, when you travelled to away matches on your bike, and you probably played in a factory or in a pub. Can anyone here remember what a factory was? Cliff has always been famous for his jokes and even his singing, and you can't say that of most modern-day table tennis players.

Swanmore A 16171.swanmoreavsswanmoreb.2.html Swanmore B
Dave Sansome already stood tall as officially the most improved player in the League this season (comparing scores against people he also played last season). This time he went one better by almost certainly claiming the coveted Giantkillers award - this is made to the person who wins against someone with the most exceptional advantage in terms of 'wins' average. Having won only 12% of his matches, Dave startled all present by beating someone on 72%. All this from a man who may well, like Cliff Chevis , have started his playing career long ago by travelling to away matches on his bike or in a car that would only start by rolling it down a hill.
Kevin Muldowney won all 3.

Division 3

IBM C 16171.ibmcvssouthwonstond.2.html South Wonston D
This may have been David Binns ' farewell to Winchester League as he hopes to move to another part of the country soon. David has been a great servant of the South Wonston club, and over the years he's probably been as influential as anyone in making the club successful and forward-looking, especially for younger players. 3 wins each for Dom Goddard and Tim Kimber , who succeeds David as club chair.

Kings C 16171.kingscvsowslebury.2.html Owslebury
Allan Bransgrove and John Pryor rode roughshod over the opposition, won all 3, and booked their team's place in a playoff for promotion to Division 2 against Hursley.

South Wonston C 16171.southwonstoncvskingsd.2.html Kings D
South Wonston C have not had a happy season in terms of wins, but Craig Johnston and Martyn Davey both excelled with 3 wins each. Georgia Barker , 13, also deserves a mention for showing consistently throughout the season that girls can make progress just as the boys do. She's probably the best girl player of her age in the League since International player Tressa Armitage .

The late Steve Reed


I'm very sorry to tell you that Steve Reed has died, of cancer. Steve was a well-liked player with Castle Table Tennis Club until 3 years ago. Our sympathies go to his family.
Steve's funeral was on the 7th April.

National Cadet League

Thanks to Martyn Davey for this Report
Report of the Fourth Round of the NCL, held at Waterside Table Tennis Club on Sunday 26th March.
The team of Ed Robertson, Blake Sanderson and Ethan Cheung played very well, but were up against the experienced side of Weymouth A in the first match, which resulted in them being defeated 5-1. The next round was against Southampton A, where they won 4-2. The third round was against Weymouth B, who they defeated 5-1, and they defeated Reading 6-0 in the fourth round. The fifth round was against Bournemouth A, where they put in a terrific effort with many games going to the fifth set, but eventually lost 6-0.
The team finished fourth in Division 1. They all played very well and will be more experienced for the next season.
The other coaches commented on their performance and their attitude towards the game, and other team members also commended them on their achievement and thanked the coaches at South Wonston Table Tennis Club.
