An interesting evening of competitive Table Tennis was played between mostly Tollgate and Pegasus players who have practiced together regularly over the Summer. There were two separate events, the A section comprising 12 players & the B 6.
With no seedings Group 1 comprised 3 of the favourites with Eric Melvin beating Steve Noble but then losing to Martyn Green who in turn squeezed passed Noble 13-11 in the final end. Ken Huang finished fourth.
Group 2 was dominated by Ipswich's Dave Fiddeman who won all his games, with Tom Elder runner-up and Terry Butler third, with the unlucky Dave Whiting winless.
With only 3 players in the third group Rowhedge's Nigel Claydon came top with Roger Hance runner-up and Barry Hayley third.
In the final round of matches Green beat both Claydon and Fiddeman in Group A to win the overall event with Eric Melvin top of Group B on count back after he lost to Elder but beat Roger Hance who achieved his dream of beating Elder. Steve Noble won Group C with Butler finishing runner-up and Hayley third, Finally, Dave Whiting won Group D beating Stan Flint, who earlier won the B event, coming second and Ken Huang third.
