The November competition wrapped up after week 4, again with a few replacements helping out.

Grade A saw some good matches which could have gone either way but the two top rated players pulled away from the pack in the end.
Grade B, which had experienced promotional/relegation at both ends after the first two weeks finished with ten of the eighteen matches going to five sets with three to advantage including a 21-19 result!
Grade C was affected by withdrawals but those who played had some tight games.

Leading players in each grade:

A Grade
 
7 wins                   J Harter
6 wins                   V Kelly
4 wins                   B Shaw,  S Higham
 
B Grade
 
7 wins                   M Hobbs
6 wins                   L Johnston,  C Gear
5 wins                   A Budden,  S Eguchi
 
C Grade
 
6 wins                   R Buchanan,  H Pan
5 wins                   L Sweeney,  M Stechman
4 wins                   T Wilson,  R Cullen


The overall November Competition format was:

For the first 2 weeks each grade will complete a round-robin – each playing everyone else in their group. Then the top two in each group automatically promote to the next highest grade (if any) and the bottom two automatically relegate to the next lowest grade (if any). The adjusted grades then play the same format for two weeks to determine final placings. This makes it pretty competitive especially in the middle grade where things will get real dicey at both ends of the table!
