In Division 4 of the Aldershot & District Table Tennis league Vic King and James Hodges both claimed three scalps apiece as Cody F defeated Frimley E 8-2. Bob Brook was undefeated but his Fleet CC C were beaten 6-4 by Cody E for whom Phil Russell and Mick Strode both won a couple. Three each from Bob Powney and Terry Kavanagh meant Ash J did the business, 7-3, over Crawley Ridge B. A good all round team effort meant Tennis H defeated Ash K 7-3, Graham Dorey, John Page and Keith Johnson each won two but none could get the better of Ash’s Dave Phillips. The same scorecard from Ash H’s 7-3 victory over their G team meant John Hutchinson was the sole point scorer for G and Hudson Foley, Vere Fereday and Paul Foley each won two for the H team.
In the third Division a three from Dave Mackinnon sent Frimley D on the way to a 7-3 win at Cody C while Ray Eason should be cheerful as his 1-2-3 helped Tennis G to a 7-3 win over new boys Ash F. A good three from Nick Green saw Crawley Ridge A to a 6-4 win at Tennis E and Pu Zhang was on triple form for Broadmoor C, leading them to a 6-4 victory against Cody D.
Dave Hewitt’s hat trick saw Tennis C home 6-4 against Ash C in Division 2. Frimley B waltzed past Broadmoor B 10-0, John Wheeler, Hillary Greig and Pete Good all on top form. Tennis D’s Neil Print won all three but still finished on the losing side, Dave Stenning, John Harvey and Dario Cereda shared six games plus the doubles made it 7-3 to Cody B, another couple for Neil Print and three from Colin Baggott saw Tennis D to a better outcome in their second game of the week, inflicting another defeat on Broadmoor B, 7-3. Three more wins for Neil Print and Tennis D ended a mammoth week with a Div 2 cup win over Frimley B.
Mark Handcock secured another maximum for Broadmoor A, including a straight sets triumph over Phil Snelson, but it wasn’t enough to stop his side slumping to a 6-4 defeat at home to Central A who are proving serious title contenders in Division 1. A good three from Martin Rozario in his first season in the top flight was just enough for Challenor as they sneaked past Tennis A 6-4 whilst Nigel Care was unbeaten as Ash B beat a two man Old Woking 7-3. Defending champs Bentley A marched ominously on atop the standings, their latest conquests Ash B, whipped 10-0. Andy Mudie, Micky Lang and Steve French all unstoppable at present.
