IBM A 6-4 Medstead A
With both teams very much in the running for the Division 1 title, every point was going
to count. Tressa Armitage hadn't played in the League for a while, but her skills were
still very evident with 3 wins including one against Ben Tombs, who loses only to the
Kings D 6-4 Swanmore B Andy Quick won 3 for Kings E; among his conquests was Kevin Sage, the right-hander turned
left-hander who is now statistically the most improved player in the League. It took him a season to get there - many
would have given up, but that's not Kevin's way!

IBM Sports Hall closing time
Please note that the closing time for the IBM Hursley Sports Hall is 10:00 pm. This has been the case for the past year, but it's
now being enforced more firmly.
This will necessitate using two tables, and starting the final Leg by 9:30 pm. Please make every effort to have at least 2 players
ready to play at 7:30 pm, as required by the
Winchester League Regulations.
While many of us might prefer a more leisurely pace using a single table, finishing earlier may help to make playing in the League
more attractive to Juniors and their parents!
The Table Tennis Serve Is your serve legal?
The question of what constitutes a legal serve was discussed at the League AGM in May.
Illegal serves give the server an unfair advantage. Umpires are sometimes reluctant to call illegal
serves - perhaps because they don't want to create antagonism, or because they aren't quite sure about the laws of table tennis.
The reluctance to give offence is understandable, but not calling illegal serves often causes ill-feeling too,
even if nothing is said openly during the match.
Adrian Reeves, who's a Table Tennis England Local Level 1 qualified umpire (meaning he can umpire up to County level), has provided these notes. Adrian's aim is to help League match
umpires and players improve the legality of serving, so it ceases to be an issue! Hopefully people will talk about this,
and point players especially in their own team or club to Adrian's notes if they feel it's necessary.
