Match reports, Week 3/21

Division 1

IBM A 9-1 Five Tees C
Division 1 continues to look highly competitive, with little to choose between the top 5 teams, so far. IBM A were perhaps at full strength here, with Julian Walton (who hasn't dropped a set so far this season), and Paul May both winning big.

Kings B 6-4 Medstead A
Ben Tombs impressed with 3 straight-sets wins for Medstead A, but Kings B also impressed by winning all of the 5-setters and taking the Doubles against a strong Doubles pairing.

Division 2

Hursley 5-5 South Wonston A
The Lee 'family firm' held Hursley to a draw, with Oliver beating both Martin Ceresa and Barry Dobson on his way to 3 wins. That may be the first time he's outdone both Phil and Adam in a League match!

Kings C 1-9 Winnall
Kings C have stuttered out of the starting-blocks this season, in this their first match. Russell Durham extended his winning run to 6 out of 6, while Colin Ley-Smith also won 3 for Winnall, who are riding high near the top of Division 2.

South Wonston B 4-6 IBM B
IBM B were promotion contenders last season and are jockeying for a promotion position again this season. No-one won 3 on either side, though Iliya Dimitrov and Sanjay Nagchowdhury were both on target until their final matches.

Division 3

Five Tees D 8-2 Owslebury
Owslebury, a player short, were unable to get much purchase against Five Tees D. Steve Swan was Five Tees D's most successful player on a night when 2 was the most any of them could hope to achieve.

IBM C 4-6 Kings D
IBM C's players in this match were all new to our League, and showed that they're neither too good nor too bad to be playing in it, but just right. They can afford to improve just a little bit, and still be just right. Again, no-one on either side won all their matches.

Kings E 7-3 Swanmore B
Luca Herbaut, playing for Kings E with his dad Raph and friend George Power, contributed to the team’s win against Swanmore B, demonstrating why he deserved to win “Improved Player of the Year” at Kings Table Tennis Club’s annual award presentation on 30 September.

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.
