Both Paperstation Malvern Table Tennis League Handicap Finals produced exciting tight matches with both games only being settled in the final sets of the evening. In the main competition the first division clash between Ramblers and Pterodactyls was won by the former by just 6 points. Chris Hewitt was in superb form for Ramblers only dropping 3 sets, 2 against Dave White and 1 against Malvern League singles champion Wayne
Chopping. He was ably supported by Alan Salisbury who shared his 4 sets with both Dave and Wayne and Graham Thompson who also took a set off Dave. The last match between Chris and Wayne proved decisive with Chis winning on aggregate 42-33 to narrowly overturn the 23 point handicap.
In the Secondary Final 1st Division Ledbury Lions overturned an 86 point handicap against 2nd Division champions Manor Park Travellers to win by 8 points largely thanks to a solid performance by Patryk Kovacz who won 11 of his 12 sets and combined with Steve Meredith to win 3 of the 4 doubles sets against Toby Wren and Martin Snee. Toby played particularly well for Travellers winning his 4 sets against Steve and taking sets off both Patryk and Richard Smith. Martin also took 3 sets off Steve Meredith and 1 off Richard but lost the decisive final set 11-7 to Steve to finally turn the match in Lions favour.
