Nuneaton & District table Tennis League

We are now 4 weeks into the season, and Ambleside E remain at the top of the 1st Division, but with a weakened side this year, the teams below are gathering to try to knock them off the top spot. They played one of their close rivals, Stockingford C, who are in 4th position only 5 points behind Ambleside. They won this fairly convincingly 7-3 but town champion, Mark Perkins won all his 3 sets for Stockingford. Ambleside then met bottom placed Stockingford B the following week, and they also won this match but by a narrower score of 6-4 thanks in the main to a maximum from Arun Jogi of Ambleside. Close behind Ambleside are Ajax Wolvey D, and NALGO MIRA both with 24 points behind the leaders. Wolvey played their sister team Wolvey C winning 6-4, although they couldn’t beat Paul Calloway who turned in with a maximum for the C team. The D team could have possibly taken top spot in their next fixture had they turned up with a full team against Ambleside H, but luckily for them Ambleside also turned up short of a player so Wolvey D ran out 5-4 winners to maintain their winning run. NALGO MIRA had an easy win against Stockingford B 8-2, then had a close 6-4 win against Wolvey C with Andy Spring making a maximum for NALGO MIRA, taking the scalp of Paul Calloway into the bargain. Stockingford C followed up their loss to the leaders with a 9-1 win over Crescent, Mark Perkins and Kevin Hobley making a maximum each. Crescent came up against the team above them in the table, Ambleside H who ran out 6-4 winners thanks to a maximum by Lee Bennett.

In Division 2, NALGO MIRA 2 have moved to the top spot with 4 wins out of 4, and are already 9 points ahead of 2nd placed Stockingford A. In week 3 they beat bottom placed Ambleside R with a maximum 10-0 win, then followed this up with an 8-2 win over Ajax Wolvey B with Steve Tandy making a maximum in both matches. They were relegated last year from division 1 together with Stockingford A who are now in the 2nd spot behind them, Stockingford had an 8-2 win over Ambleside C, with new Vice President, Dick Jenkins, helping himself to a maximum. They did not have things all their own way in their next match against Fire Brigade, managing only a 5-5 draw, thanks to Gareth Edmunds winning all his 3 sets. Ambleside A have dropped to 3rd place on 19 points, 12 points behind the leader, but with a match in hand as do all the teams below them apart from Ambleside R. They just had one match in the last 2 week period and they played out a 5-5 draw against Ajax Wolvey B with Graham Bolstridge maintaining his unbeaten run with a maximum. Wolvey B find themselves in 4th spot just 2 points behind Ambleside A, and 2 points below them are the Fire Brigade in 5th, and they also just had the one match mentioned above. In the bottom 2 spots are the two teams promoted from Division 3 Ambleside C and Ambleside R in 6th and 7th position respectively, although the C team are more in contention with the teams above them at this stage. The two teams met in week 4 with the C team running out 7-3 winners, and Dave Jowett and Richard Crosbie both making a maximum for the C team. This leaves Ambleside R still looking for their first win of the season.

In Division 3, the new Stockingford D team is looking unbeatable already with 36 points at the top of the league, having dropped only 4 sets in the first 4 weeks, and they are 15 points ahead of the 2nd placed Ajax Wolvey F, but they are yet to play each other. Stockingford continued their winning ways with an 8-2 win over Ambleside G, and went 2 points better with a maximum 10-0 win against Ambleside D, with Phil Chesters taking the man of the match title over his team mates who all made a maximum. Ajax Wolvey F are trying to catch them, but didn’t do themselves any favours losing 6-4  to their sister team Wolvey G in the 3rd week. Sammy de Lima and Howard Taylor both won 2 sets each but neither could overcome John Steer of the F team who made a maximum. The F team followed this result up with an 8-2 win over Griff & Coton, and again John Steer maintained his unbeaten run with a maximum. Weddington Social have improved from their first year in the league last year, and they are in 3rd spot on 18 points. They had a good win 9-1 against Ambleside D with Kieron Watson taking all his 3 sets to help his side to the win, but the following week they came up against the team 3 points below them, Ajax Wolvey G, and lost 7-3 thanks in the main to a maximum by Sammy de Lima, and Kamla Winfield weighing in with a double. On the same points as Wolvey G are Ambleside G with 15 points apiece, and their sister team Ambleside D follows them in 6th place on 10 points, having only picked up 1 point in the last 2 weeks. Finally in bottom spot are Griff & Coton on just 5 points, but they have a match in hand of some of the teams above them, and they have also played the top 2 teams so their results may well improve in the coming weeks.
