Report on the 2011/12 Cambridgeshire Table Tennis Association
After 13 hours of table tennis and more than 300 matches, at the Neale Wade School Sports Centre, Wayne Mason became Men’s Champion for the first time, and Helen Arnold won the Ladies title for the second time in three seasons.
Mason’s straight games victory over Daniel Fielding in the Men’s final was part of a personal double as he also partnered Robert Swift to retain their Men’s Doubles title.
After coming back from 2-1 down against Val Parkes in the ladies final, Helen Arnold paired up with County 2nd team colleague Matt Knott to take the Mixed Doubles, knocking out Mason and Caroline Wright 12-10 in the fifth, in the quarter final, before overcoming Shaun Murray and Diane Gutteridge in the final.
Daniel Fielding also had some success retaining the Under 21 Constable Cup against Innes Christison and combining with Stuart Agger to win the Drawn Doubles.
Alex Facey retained the Veteran’s Singles crown overcoming Liwu Wei three straight in the final.
Liwu Wei did have success defeating Shaun Murray in the Restricted Singles in five legs.
Abbie Stacey also completed a double beating Amy Catlin in the Under 21 Keki Mistry trophy and then Ena Catlin in the Cadet girls final.
Amy Catlin did however manage to “turn the tables” with victory over Abbie in the Junior Girls Singles.
There was another double for Adam Jepson collecting the Junior Boys title against Innes Christison, and the Cadet Boys overcoming Alex Horscroft in and exciting 5 sets.
Zak Davey also left with two winners trophies after his victory over Alison Greatwood in the handicap final and pairing up with Innes Christison in the Junior Doubles to take their group after a games countback over Ollie Loia and Jack Prime.
