Week 15/21

Division 1

Five Tees B 3-7 Kings A
3 wins for Kings A's Cameron Brealey, just as in the corresponding match in September.

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 very best.

Division 2

Hursley 7-3 IBM B
This match saw Hursley draw level with IBM B, just outside the Playoff level. Martin Ceresa and Barry Dobson have histories of performing well against IBM teams, and history repeated itself here with 3 wins for each.

Swanmore A 7-3 South Wonston B
Only Tim Kimber of South Wonston B could withstand Swanmore A's determined assault, and he alone accounted for their 3 points. Swanmore A seem to be destined to win Division 2, even though almost half their matches have ended as 5-5 draws.

Division 3

Kings E 2-8 Five Tees D
Five Tees D are the winningest team in the whole League, and Tony Gregan and Steve Swan maintained the momentum with 3 wins each. Kings E resisted bravely, but heartbreakingly lost two 5-setters along the way.

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!

Medstead B 9-1 Owslebury
Medstead B reinforced their claim to a Playoff place (at least) with this thumping win. Owslebury are not exactly running on empty, but they have no available reserves, so their player pool is permanently in the red zone. 3 wins each for Glenn Phur and Richard Anderson.

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.

You can read Adrian's notes here.
