Kings A 3-7 IBM A
Two of the League's strongest players, Tressa Armitage and Ed Slot, were ranged against each other here, with Ed finishing ahead in 3 straight games in the Singles, but with Tressa
sharing in IBM A's Doubles win. Both players won their other 2 Singles.
IBM B 7-3 Kings C Paul Martin of Kings C is making a speciality of doing well against IBM B - he won 3 against them for the second time this season, a feat he hasn't achieved against anyone else this season!
IBM B are respectably placed in mid-table and are by no means a pushover.
Owslebury 4-6 IBM C Owslebury continues to battle on with the barest bones of a team, thanks to the ravages of injury and ill-health. 3 wins for Martin Healey of IBM C.
The highlight of the evening
was when Vas Shcherbinin smashed what looked like a winner, it hit the edge of Martin Woolf's bat, spiralled up to within inches of the 10 metre-high roof of
the IBM Sports Hall, still spinning viciously, landed on Vas's side of the net and then span back over it, completely unreachable.
Post-Covid plans for the League, dated 8th October.
Please watch this space for the latest updates on future plans for the League, following the
disruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The 2021-22 League season will start on 1 November.
The League will be switching over to Table Tennis England's "TT Leagues" web manager.
The web link is "https://winchester.ttleagues.com"
This is a replacement for the system we have been using since 2008 (the one you're looking at now!). This will not be used in future.
The reason is that it has been developed and maintained by one person, as a hobby, so handing it on to anyone else isn't a realistic option.
Table Tennis England's product is technically much better, and has a team of professional programmers behind it.
Some of the materials in the current system (League tables, averages, etc from 208-2020) will be saved and displayed in the TT England
system (TT Leagues).
The current system will remain visible until July 2022, but won't be updated with newer results and tables.
The fixture lists for the season starting 1st November should be visible on
Winchester TT Leagues around mid-October.
