Evesham & District Table Tennis Association - Basepoint Division 1 Report

17th December 2017

Littleton Clubs moved to the top of Evesham & District Basepoint Division 1 with an impressive 8-2 victory over Wyre Elite. The match saw a clash between two of the big players in Division 1, as Craig Witheford beat Wyre Elite’s previously undefeated number one Matt Hartwell in straight sets. At the age of 17, Witheford has more to come as he develops his game and is a likely men’s individual champion for this year or in the near future. Clubs’ Steve Cull and John Taylor both lost to Hartwell but beat Darrell Wiltshire and Lee Wilkinson. Witheford and Cull beat Hartwell and Wilkinson in the doubles.

Littleton Positives slipped to second place after a 6-4 defeat by JLM Owls. Owls’ Luke Moffat retains his 100% record following a 3-1 win over Positives’ top player Nick Mytton. After this week’s slip up from Hartwell and having already defeated Witheford earlier in the season, this could be the year for Moffat to become individual champion. Chris Lane also had a good night for Owls, losing to Mytton but defeating Doug Payne and Rob Sinderberry. Owls went into the doubles 5-4 up with Positives looking for a win to tie the result. Moffat and Lane ensured the victory for Owls by beating Mytton and Payne 3-1.

Littleton Aces had an 8-2 win over Bengeworth Purple. Saulius Breitaris was Player of the Match for Aces with three straight sets wins. Andrew Taylor and Dave Bevington both beat Purple’s Bob Bryant and Aileen Philips but lost to Dougie Allan.

Bottom team JLM Sunrisers slipped to their 9th straight defeat as they were beaten 10-0 by JLM Hawks. Some of the contests were closer than the final score suggested.  Sunrisers’ Mandy Sylvester went two sets up against Barbara Szeligowska before her opponent fought back to win. Stef Mytton looked to have turned his match against Hawks’ Mark Hale when he levelled from two sets down, only to lose the final set 11-5.
