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.
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

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.
