SOUTH DEVON & TORBAY TABLE TENNIS LEAGUE.
The first title of the 2015-16 season has been decided. Torbay Academy 6 youngsters’ win over Brixham Swifts, followed by 2nd placed NA Kestrels’ defeat by club mates the Kites, has secured the Fourth Division title for the Academy side. Kestrels still look good for the runners-up spot, no thanks to Richard Salt’s maximum for the Kites as they defeated the Kestrels 6-4. Torre Tigers came up against an inspired Tom Andrews as they drew with his Brixham Swifts side; the Tigers then went to Newton Abbot and came away with a fine 9-1 victory to move up the table, with Rob Burridge and Jean Neafcy undefeated for the Tigers.
The battle of the chasers at the top of the First Division saw NA Batmen just get the better of Brixham Sharks 6-4, to consolidate their runners-up position. Shaun Gibbs took a maximum for the Batmen who trail leaders Denbury Imports by 8 points with just one match to play.
