Dinting Cricket Club B 3 v 7 Hollingworth Hopefuls
Good night of ping pong with the old maestro John Jepson and ‘tricky’ Jim proving too good for the cricket club.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E 1 v 9 Chinley Table Tennis Club C
1st match of the season against tough opposition. Great battle in the first match between Steve and Jim. Steve (???????) it to take the first point of the evening. Luke and Max both played really well with some very impressive rallies and some great shots, with both of them taking a game off (????) James. The evening was played in great spirit and enjoyed by all.
Thanks to Chinley for a great opening 1st match of the new season. We look forward to meeting them again soon. Well done boys, I think we should score some good points on this our second season.
Hollingworth Veterans 4 v 6 Hollingworth D
A highly entertaining match – apart from Adie against Norman, which had some of the longest points in table tennis history!
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F 8 v 2 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits D
Bandits D only had one player at the match. I waited until Barry returned from his holidays to find out what to put on the card. Hence the delay. Thanks, Pete Clothier
Chinley Table Tennis Club C 8 v 2 Hollingworth Hopefuls
Excellent rallies. Enjoyable game !
Hollingworth D 5 v 5 Chinley Table Tennis Club D
A closely fought match with Hollingworth D winning the doubles to force a draw. Shirley Hope had a great match winning all her three singles, playing some great shots on both wings. Richard Chilton won two singles. Tony Y-Robinson won two, with Jason Barton and Ken Handley won one each. Tony and Jason won the doubles from Shirley and Richard in the fifth.
Dinting Cricket Club B 8 v 2 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F
Bandit’s Finn, Alex and Elliott pushed Dinting all the way, with 5 games going to five sets. Chilton playing against his old team won his 3 games. Fishers won his 3, and Darwin won his 1st game and is sure to improve but it could be a different score when the teams meet again.
Hollingworth D 1 v 9 Chinley Table Tennis Club C
A whitewash was saved by Tony Yorke-Robinson. Though the score of (-1 was decisive enough, three sets went to five games, Carl Leonard and Jason Barton took Jim Henderson to five with Jim the eventual winner in both cases. Tony also had a five game set against James Krassowski with some great shots from both sides, James winning 15-13 in the fifth. Richard Winterbottom won all his three singles and won the doubles with James.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F 5 v 5 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E
A very tight match. Both junior teams played very well.
Dinting Cricket Club B 2 v 8 Hollingworth Veterans
The veterans continue to improve with age……..imagine them in 20 years!
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E 0 v 10 Stanley Square D
Great match against very strong opposition. All the three young lads played and although they all lost there were some great rallies and excellent shots from bothe sides. Luke took a game off James and narrowly missed taking a second game losing 3 – 1 overall. All matches were played in great spirit and the lads from Stanley Square appreciated the great effort and skill and potential that was on offer from our young team. A really enjoyable evening thanks to Stanley Square we look forward to the return match.
Hollingworth Veterans 9 v 1 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E
Very long, enjoyable match. Bandits E played very well.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E 5 v 5 Chinley Table Tennis Club D
A great match against the newly formed Chinley D team. Some great matches really close. 3 out of the first four going to five. Connor picked up his first point of the season and Luke and I both carried on picking up some points. A draw was a very fair result in this close fought match, Thanks Chinley.
Dinting Cricket Club B 2 v 8 Hollingworth D
4th game, 5th set – Fishwick v Leonard – was it the longest game ever? Dinting out-classed. Nice to see Dave Clegg back after a lengthy absence.
Hollingworth D 8 v 2 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E
A good night’s battle with the up and coming youngsters giving a very good account of themselves, possessing really good forehand and backhand shots. They showed their coaching has given them opportunities to really attack the opposition. Well played Luke and Max. Steve captained well and had 2 five game battles with Carl and Jason. Good stuff to watch.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E 1 v 9 Hollingworth Methodists
A good evening, some really good matches and some great rallies and shots were on show. Unfortunately no-one could keep up with captain Pete Kelly, his experience and domination were too much for our young team on this occasion but they all played well and tried really hard. A very hard point was achieved by the 2 young lads in the doubles match. A very enjoyable evening but also very frustrating as the matches should have been a lot closer then they were. Hopefully the return match will be more favourable.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits D 5 v 5 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E
Some excellent matches this evening with a lot of long rallies – especially exciting rallies in doubles match!
Hollingworth Veterans 4 v 6 Stanley Square D
Very close match, not finishing until 10:30. Greta fun, lots of bad language and tense finishes.
Dinting Cricket Club B 4 v 6 Chinley Table Tennis Club C
Star player, Winterbottom (won his 3 games) closely followed by young A Davies who did well beating Fishwick in a close game. Chilton did well beating Davies in a very close game. Boothman unfortunately had an injured foot and retired.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E 5 v 5 Dinting Cricket Club B
A good match with lots of great play and shots on show from the young lads. Luke took Tony the 2nd Division reserve player to 5 sets. A great effort. Max played very well and picked up his first points of the season. Hopefully he'll kick on now and carry on getting more points for the rest of the season. A 5 - 5 score ws a fair result overall. Well played both sides.
Hollingworth Hopefuls 5 v 5 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits D
A fair result with Jihn taking all three, and Bob coming very close in game 4 and Alan taking 2 games and then collapsing in the third in the 4th set against Andy. Andy and Mike won the doubles in a close run 5 setter.
Hollingworth Hopefuls 10 v 0 Dinting Cricket Club B
A good night for the Hopefuls who nearly conceded the one on one between John and Alan F. and the doubles between Alan S. and Colin against Alan F. and Archie.
Chinley Table Tennis Club D 1 v 9 Chinley Table Tennis Club C
Great derby! Well played the youngsters.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits D 0 v 10 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F
A great evening - the lads all played v. well - they have some brilliant serves!
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F 10 v 0 Hollingworth Hopefuls
A great match tonight against the Hopefuls. The scoreline isn't a true reflexion on the night, there were some excellent matches played tonight in great spirit and some very close battles with most of the games poing to 4 sets and a couple of epic 5 set matches. Jenny, unfortunately, had to retire due to her feeling unwell during her second match, but we were all glad to see her feeling much better by the end of the evening. Thanks to Alan, Jenny and Bob for a really enjoyable evening.
Hollingworth Hopefuls 2 v 8 Chinley Table Tennis Club C
A sad night for the Hopefuls who only managed to win 2 games, Bob winning a great game in 5 against Aidan and Colin winning the opening game with 14-12 in the 4th. Wilf played in his first match for Chinley C but proved to be too much competition for the Hopefuls. Colin worked hard to take him to 5. Alan and Bob were no match for Aidan and Wilf in the doubles.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F 5 v 5 Dinting Cricket Club B
Both teams agreed to make the result 5 - 5 because of availability of the same players and the venue (this match had to be abandoned originally because of snow)
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E 4 v 6 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F
A really good match against the young Bandits (F) team. Some really close matches with some great rallies and shots. Steve managed to win all 3 of his matches although he was pushed all the way. Luke picked up 1 point and Max played very well but unfortunately he didn't pick up a win on this occasion. A great evening, cheers lads, enjoy Christmas.
Hollingworth D 5 v 5 Hollingworth Methodists
Great match - fair result. Peter continued his great run of success and young Kass played really well with a great range of attacking and defensive shots. Thanks for an entertaining match.
Dinting Cricket Club B 3 v 7 Chinley Table Tennis Club D
It was the Chilton's night. Richard won his 3 (Chinley), Archie won 2.(Dinting). Bailey and Hope both won 2 games against Fishers, who is still recovering from injury and loss of form.
Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E 5 v 5 Hollingworth Veterans
A great match against the Vets, Luke had a fantastic match against Adie winning it 3 - 0 and getting his revenge for the 3 - 0 loss in the away match earlier in the season. Max played brilliantly and narrowly lost against Graham and Adie. The boys played in the doubles and had a fantastic entertaining match winning it 3 - 1 to round out a great evening and overall a great result with some fantastic skill and shots on show and all played in fantastic spirit. Cheers to the Vets (Graham and Adie).
Hollingworth D 5 v 5 Hollingworth Hopefuls
Great night's match - good games, good banter! Norman's great defensive display against Colin's fierce attacking style was probably the night's highlight - although the doubles fight-back by Alan and Colin vs Carl and Tony was equally memorable and exciting. Well played and a fair result.
Hollingworth Veterans 3 v 7 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits F
A victory for youth over experience! An enjoyable evening with some close, exciting matches.
