The annual competition for the Val Mackey Doubles title was held last week by the Spalding and District Table Tennis League.
This event sees the entrants paired at random from four sets according to their ranking within the League.
Ten matches took place in each group.
Week 8 in the Spalding and District Table Tennis League was scheduled as a spare week, but happily six tables were in use, four involving 6 matches.
Moulton then went on to play Mine’s a Pint’s Jeremy Hitcham in a match unfinished from week 6.
JDM now sit third.
A mixed week in the Spalding and District Table Tennis League with six matches played.
Four of those were scheduled while two were postponed, but two others were brought forward, though one of those was unfinished.
However patterns are beginning to emerge in both divisions.
In contrast to the previous week the Spalding and District Table Tennis League was quite busy with eight matches played in part at least.
In Division 1 Jokers set out their challenge for the top with a 5 – 0 demolition of Nets n Edges, the latter’s third of the season.
A quiet night of competition was likely for the Spalding and District Table Tennis League in week 5 as it was round 2 of the Moulton Shield.
With just four matches scheduled, one of which had been played early only, three tables were booked for matches.
The Spalding and District Table Tennis League’s week 4 unfortunately hit another problem.
JDM and South Holland were unable to complete their match because of a late illness.
The match will be concluded later.
Finally TNC opened their account against Team TJ.
Week 3 of the Spalding and District Table Tennis League’s new season saw the official start to the league matches, of which there were six, one having been played early.
However Tom and John Chesworth, with Phil Chandler, in the doubles had few other scares.
A new member coming in to the Spalding and District Table Tennis League means that there are now 7 teams in Division 2.
As a consequence one of the byes from Round 1 of the Moulton Shield now had a match.
So the new season for the Spalding and District Table Tennis League is under way with 8 teams in Division 1 and 6 in Division 2.
Last Tuesday saw the start of competitive play with a good turn out and five of the six Moulton Shield matches were played, with most starting early.
The Spalding and District Table Tennis League will be, as advertised, making a start to its new season programme from tonight (Sept 25th) with Round 1 of the Moulton Shield.
