TABLE TENNIS: JAG motor to first win

Have your say

A busy night in Spalding and District Table Tennis League (sponsored by Vital Recruitment) saw matches played in four different competitions.

In Division One, South Holland had their slim title hopes dented by a loss to bottom team JAG. James Gibson and Allan Lewis chose an important match to gain their first win of the season.

Both won a singles, also Lewis’s first, and then came from behind twice to steal the doubles for a 3-2 victory. Richard Hammond scored Holland’s two.

Dark Knights in Division Two also faced the bottom team, Nomads, but made no mistake with a 4-1 success and are now five ahead.

It was semi-final night in the Marylands Cup, played off the same handicaps as the previous week’s Roy Gibson.

Bladerunners, chasing every trophy possible, defeated Haz Beans on a Roll 4-1 – although they had to come from behind in two games.

The one event Blades have come a cropper in is the Guardian Cup, played with a hidden handicap.

Castle Sports and Defenders, with no other fixtures, brought forward their second round tie.

Jean White for Defenders was in superb form defeating her opponents 33-12 and 33-6 which, with partner Alan Fear’s contribution, led to a final score of 132-58 in their favour.

An added handicap of 52 was insufficient to change the result.

• The Roy Gibson quarter finals will now be played on March 13 at the same time as the individual events.
