Team event winners Lillington (Lee Dorning & Timmy Cooper)
As part of the West Midlands half term training programme a 2 a-side team event was stage at Wood Green on Saturday 23rd February. Sixteen teams were due to compete but due to illness on the day we started the event with fifteen teams.
All the matches were played in a friendly but competitive spirit and some excellent table tennis was show cased throughout the day.
All the teams started in groups and the matches consisted of two single and a double. After the mornings matches the four top teams were Lillington (Timmy Cooper & Lee Dorning), Colebridge (Sam Henderson & Dapo Balogun), Coventry (George Allison & Sam Coombes) and Woodfield (George Bradley & Joey Chen). So for the semi finals Lillington played Coventry and it proved to be a very tight affair with Lillington emerging 2-1 winners. The other semi final was Colebridge against Woodfield and even thou Colebridge won 3-0 the score doesn’t reflect the tightness of the matches.
So the final was between Lillington and Colebridge. For the final matches the reverse singles were also played and some fantastic top quality table tennis took place. The eventually winners were Lillington and after some very hard fought matches.
All the teams continued to play in the afternoon and played for positions.
