Press Report 17th Jan 2016


With just a handful of league fixtures, the Team Handicap Cups took precedence in the South Devon & Torbay Table Tennis League this week.

There were great results for Fourth Division sides Torbay Academy 6 & Newton Abbot Owls in the Dyment Doubles competition. Both sides whitewashed higher league opposition: the Torbay Academy 6 side of Jakub Piwowar, Brandon Lewis & Herbie Sage thrashed First Division Halwell 5-0, while NA Owls’ team Rob Bayliss, Sam Hiles and Ross Embury defeated Third Division runaway leaders Marldon Tykes 5-0.  Also in the Dyment Doubles, holders Torbay Academy 1, saw off a fine challenge from Division 2 leaders Brixham Imports 5-3; Taverners defeated Torre Bats 5-1; Hasbeens were victorious over N A Kites, and perhaps the biggest surprise of the round was Torbay Academy 3’s defeat by Third Division basement side Dawlish Drifters 5-1
