Oxford are the winners of this year’s Senior Inter-League competition. The outcome was not determined until the final mixed doubles of Oxford’s final match against Didcot. Both teams had won their two previous matches, and the match score was 3-all. But a fine 3-1 win by Karl Bushell & Dawn Pearce over Charlie Lane & Denise Weller saw the title once again go to Oxford. Didcot were runners-up
The competition was played at Moreton Table Tennis Club on Sunday 7th April. Players from all three leagues participated along with a Rest of Oxfordshire (ROx) side.
Players participating were as follows:
Banbury – Jack Shardlow, Peter Harris, Sharon Curtis
Didcot – Charlie Lane, Greg Boone, Denise Weller
Oxford – Karl Bushell, Fraser Harris, Dawn Pearce
ROX – Dave Ralls, Matt Davies
Results were as follows:
Didcot 6-1 Banbury
Oxford 5-2 ROx
Banbury 1-6 Oxford
Didcot 4-3 ROx
Oxford 4-3 Didcot
Banbury 3-4 ROx
Performance of the day was undoubtedly by Dave Ralls in the ROx side. He was in sparkling form winning all his six singles and two out of his three mixed doubles – and that was only lost 11-9 in the fifth. Well played Dave!
