Table Tennis by Paul Myers
Fleet CC B are the Division Four Champions in the Aldershot and District Table Tennis League with Ash H taking the runners up spot.
Congratulations to Mark Holbrook, Andy Blunden, Marge Massey and Jeremy Fox.
Ash H who finished second knew they needed to take nine points against Frimley E to win the title which looked a tough task, and so it proved with Ash H only winning 6-4. Terry Kavanagh won all three and Brian Simpson two for Ash with Paul Phelan bagging a duo for Frimley. Tennis H cemented third place by thrashing a two man Ash J 10-0 with Paul Jarvis, Graham Dorey and Paul Stearnes all unbeaten on the evening. Farnham Cohesion have had some great results and they look sure to finish fourth in their debut season. Finishing with a bang they beat Cody E 9-1 and Ash J 8-2 with Dong Ming-Lau winning six out of six, Dean Robertson five out of six and Chris Secker four out of six.
In Division One Farnborough Tennis A are now officially relegated after losing 9-1 to Ash A. Ross Saxby and Martin Townshend cruised through their sets both winning three out of three on the evening with Scott Ayers(2 wins) losing out to Dave Hewitt who prevented the whitewash for the tennis men. In the other relegation slot at the moment are Cody A who have two games in hand on Challoner but are twelve points behind them. Looking at the run in though Cody A still have Central B, Bentley A and Frimley A to play and look the favourites to go down with Tennis A. At the other end of the division Central B have wrestled back the lead by four points from Broadmoor A thanks to a draw against Bentley A. Central's Graham Watts was the man of the match with a hard fought hat-trick with Micky Lang grabbing a brace for Bentley. Central A beat a two man Shackleford 9-1 with the nicknamed " Twin Towers " Phil Snelson and Norman Swift both unbeaten. Shackleford's Richard Seymour had a titanic battle with Paul Massey(1 win) winning 12-14, 11-4, 7-11, 11-6 and 12-10 to prevent the drubbing. Dave Phelps was the main man for Central C with a battling treble in their draw against Frimley A for whom Tim Nygou won two.
In Division Two the relegation battle is hotting up with Ash E now in the mix with Broadmoor B and Tennis E. As it stands Ash E have 68pts with no games remaining, Broadmoor B have 63pts with Fleet CC A left to play and Tennis E have 57pts with Tennis B and Cody B to play. With previous form to go on Tennis E will struggle to get enough points from their two games and look sure to go down. Broadmoor B however only just lost out to Fleet CC A 6-4 in the first half so it could be very close again and their survival is in their own hands needing six points to stay up.
Finally in Division Three neither of the top two teams played their vital matches. Tennis G though were in action beating an under strengh Frimley D 9-1 and drawing with Frimley C. Paul Shakespeare and Ray Eason both won five out of six for the tennis men. Frimley C's Robert Brittain grabbed a hat-trick whilst Paul Phelan playing up for the D's grabbed a single to prevent his team being whitewashed.
