The Bath and District Table Tennis League’s end of season presentation/social evening took place at Bath Cricket Club on Friday 19th May. The function was attended by around 50 members and their partners/families, who enjoyed a buffet and were entertained by a quiz, expertly organised with a cricket theme by Dennis Townsend.
Trophies were presented to the winners and runners-up of the league titles, team cup competitions, and closed championships, by league chairman David Hockney. The presentations reflected Chippenham Table Tennis Club’s domination of the 2016/17 season.
Chippenham A retained the Premier Division winners’ trophy, with the club’s B team finishing with the Runners Up trophies as well as picking up the KO Cup. The club’s C team also got in on the act by taking the Restricted Cup, for teams outside the Premier Division.
Chippenham also dominated the Closed Championships, with the A team’s Gary Baldwin winning both the Open and Veteran Singles titles, with Andy Cox from the B team the runner-up in both competitions.
