The Mansfield and District Table Tennis Leagues Presentation night took place on Friday 24th April 2015 at the Summit Centre in Kirkby, with ladies England No 2 Kelly Sibley and men’s England No 7 Chris Doran who came to play Exhibition matches and hand out the seasons trophies.
The night was kicked off by the Chairman Brian Roddis, when he awarded the Chairman award to Roy Drew, at 84 years old Roy has played every game this season for his team Hucknall 50+ in Division 2 and winning 60% of his games and attending all the other tournaments throughout the year and making the semi-finals in the Yuletide cup and the Mick Dennis cup. Well deserved recipient and a credit to the league.
Chris Doran and Kelly Sibley then played an exhibition match followed by challengers from the league with Joe Zygadlo & Junior Stoddart both playing Chris Doran whilst Amber Zygadlo and Matt Fowkes played Kelly Sibley. All the matches were very entertaining and played in good humour for an enjoyable night.
It was then time for juniors with Jessica Melrose partnering Chris Doran played a match against Jessica’s brother Billy Melrose who partnered Kelly Sibley. It was great to see the young kids getting a chance to play against some of the best players in the Country.
Then Chris and Kelly presented all the awards for the season and had photos with all the winners.
The season is now over and on behalf of the committee we would like to thank every player in the league for their commitment to the league and their attendance at the presentation evening with 15 of the 16 teams having representativse on the night with most having all their players attending.
