League Report: Week 18, starting 20th March

Division 1

Five Tees A 16171.fiveteesavsibmb.2.html IBM B
IBM B and Five Tees B are hovering around the brink of the Division 1 relegation playoff zone at the moment, so the latter will be relieved that IBM B could only scrape 3 points against their (Five Tees) A team, all of them won by Ed Slot .

IBM A 16171.ibmavskingsa.2.html Kings A
Like IBM B, IBM A could muster only 2 players on Monday, but they will probably think the 7 points they picked up was plenty against their only possible rivals for the Division 1 title. Mathematically Kings A can still win, but realistically it's just about totally impossible.

South Wonston B 16171.southwonstonbvssouthwonstona.2.html South Wonston A
South Wonston A's young team (their eldest on the night was only 16) seem likely to stir up the old guard (IBM, Kings and Five Tees) next season. Jared Schaller extended his run of Singles wins with 3 more, while his younger teammates both contributed to the points tally.

Division 2

Hursley 16171.hursleyvsswanmoreb.2.html Swanmore B
Two teams in the relegation zone grappled for the points that have been hard to come by for both of them this season. In footballing terms this was a 6-pointer - every point I take from you counts double, because I get the point and you don't. The team that finishes higher (whichever that may be) gets a second bite at the cherry, though, by contesting a playoff against the runner-up team from Division 3.

Swanmore A 16171.swanmoreavswinnall.2.html Winnall
After a slow start, Winnall have enjoyed 7 straight wins - that makes them serious contenders for winning Division 2 outright! Swanmore A are one of their main rivals, but were without a third player.

Division 3

Kings C 16171.kingscvssouthwonstond.2.html South Wonston D
South Wonston D's Tim Kimber completed his 12th 3-win match of the season, the most of anyone in the League. He's been doing a great job helping South Wonston's younger players, too!

Five Tees C 16171.fiveteescvsowslebury.2.html Owslebury
Owslebury swept past IBM C briefly in Division 3 with this win. Others may not be aware that rivalries exist even in the currently less fashionable parts of the lowest division, but you can bet the teams themselves are fully focussed on their neighbours. Peter Budd landed a great win over Len Field , who has the rare honour of having beaten Tim Kimber twice this season.

South Wonston C 16171.southwonstoncvsibmc.2.html IBM C
IBM C's drawn match may not look as spectacular on paper as Owslebury's win over Five Tees C, but it did permit the computer folk to sweep back past Owslebury in the League table. Iliya Dimitrov scored 3 to make the main contribution towards keeping Owslebury at bay.

Congratulations to Ben Cawston on reaching the last 8 of the English Junior National Championships at Huddersfield (30th April 2016). Ben beat the 6th ranked England player, Alec Ward, 11-9 in the 7th game (!) before losing to the England number 2, Luke Savill. Garth Kinlocke was the League's last player to get to the last 8 of the Juniors, about 10 years ago. He got as high as 14th in England Men, and is still (May 2016) ranked 22nd.
Zak Abel (musical artist and former England Cadet Boysí Singles national champion) plays table tennis in this impressive music video. Definitely no CGI enhancements!
