PREMIER DIVISION TEAMS PROSPER

21/11/17

The second round of group matches in the Aylesbury Table Tennis Fank Mitchell Handicap competition took place recently. Although it is early days to pinpoint any favourites, Haddenham D and Tring C from Division Two have emerged as potential winners of their groups. Haddenham D won by 12 points against Bishopstone D with Tring flattening Brill A by 48 points. There were some close encounters none more so than Bishopstone C’s win by 1 point against their Division Two rivals, Sports F.

With Premier Division Teams entering the fray, the task became harder for the lower Division Teams. Quainton A eclipsed Quarrendon C by 63 points and Ridgeway A overcame Haddenham F by 20 points. Bellingdon had a comfortable 26 point victory against Brill B and Sports B, using reserves from Division One and Three, overcame Risborough B by 44 points, despite a spirited performance from David Simpson who managed a draw and a win. The hardest match was Haddenham A facing Quarrendon B who had a massive 358 point handicap advantage. Andy Misseldine, Mark Scott and Darren Palmer had to work very hard taking the match right to the doubles before succeeding by 3 points. Ed Lock, Tim Berendt and Peter Fyles for Quarrendon never gave up in the face of top class table tennis and should be congratulated for their part in a spirited match.
