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.

Week 2

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

Week 3

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.

Week 4

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.

Week 5

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.

Week 6

Hollingworth Veterans 9 v 1 Glossop Table Tennis Club Bandits E

Very long, enjoyable match. Bandits E played very well.

Week 7

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.

Week 8

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.

Week 9

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.

Week 10

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.

Week 11

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.

Week 13

Great derby! Well played the youngsters.
