2012 Doubles Table Tennis Tournament

Once again we held our annual doubles tournament. We had a good entry of 20 players (15 men & 5 women); the tournament was organised by Jek Jacob & Bruce Thomson. We seeded the men & ladies: the top 5 men paired with the women, the other men were paired up to play in a men’s group.
In the mixed group Bruce Thomson & Sue Jacob won all their 4 games (84 points), Don Hodgkinson & Brenda Davies won 2 games with 77 points, Jek Jacob& Jean Hodgkinson won 2 games with 68 points, Peter Wooliscroft & Avril Hedley won 1 game with 62 points and Prem Kumar& Liz Saunders won 1 game with 52 points.
In the men’s group, Tony Boden & Ian Saunders won all 4 games (84 points), Tony Huxford & John Griffiths won 3 games with 72 points, John Hayman & Bob Burfitt won 2 games with 64 points, Mike Cooper & Andrew Matthews won 1 with 66 points and Roger Lill & Terry Roberts did not win any with 52 points. The semi-finals were then played. Bruce & Sue off +5 played Tony & John G who had a very close game winning 16-21. Don & Brenda also played off +5 against Tony & Ian who won 23-25. The final was between the 2 men’s pairs, Tony & Ian coming out worthy champions winning in the best of 3 games 21-19 & 21-16.

A most enjoyable tournament was had by all, well done.

The men’s & ladies singles tournament will take place on 25th January.
