Top seed loses in first round group match but recovers to take the title

The Maidstone Table Tennis League closed championships were held on the 3rd/4th February 2018 at the Cornwallis Academy. The Men’s single stop seed Peter Ives was given a shock in the group stages losing to Miro Danadzhiev which put him into the bottom half of the draw where he met and beat Terry Clapperton 11-6, 11-5, 11-2 to set up a semi-final meeting with second seed Martin Ball. He recovered his form to beat Martin Ball 7-11, 4-11, 11-5, 13-11, 11-7 and set up a re-match with Miro Danadzhiev in the final. In the top half of the draw Malcolm Skates had an excellent win over Peter Davis coming back from two legs down to win 9-11, 8-11, 11-9, 11-6, 11-4 before falling to Miro Danadzhiev 10-12, 12-10, 7-11, 11-7, 11-7. Ives got his revenge in the final 9-11, 11-6, 11-6, 11-3

Several male players had an excellent but tiring weekend, progressing in many events, of particular note, Shev McDonald, Malcolm Skates, Patrick Jeffery, Petar Tancevski and Richard Bashford. In the ladies events Claire Blackman and Julie Parker excelled, but Julie Hall also took home a collection of medals.

In the non-league taster tournament it was nice to see 8 year old George Nott win a silver medal in the doubles event with partner Justin Waters. Paul Flemming beat Peter Murphy in the singles event.
