Interclub (sort of)

Normally about now we would be coming to the end of Series One of Winter Interclub. The calendar is against us to run a full competition and the reality is also that many players are just starting to pick up their bats again and probably need some time to get up to speed.

Accordingly, starting Wednesday 17 June, we are running a four-week competition, singles only, with players split into groups of 9. Players will be streamed and will play a round robin over two weeks against the other 8 players in their group (four singles a night). They will repeat the process over the following two weeks.

We therefore invite players to nominate themselves, either directly or via their clubs, to me by Friday 12 June. Please only enter if you expect to be able to play for each of the four Wednesdays commencing 17 June.

November “Four Wednesdays” Spring Competition (2019)

This year’s November competition saw 37 players turn up on at least one night, including 25 who played three or four nights.

Thanks go to all the regulars, but thanks in particular to those players of the Winter Division One and Two standards who were prepared to play against the lower rated youngsters and encourage them in their quest for improvement. No doubt you will be seeing more of them in the next few seasons!

The competition was more about turning up and enjoying table tennis, sometimes against players not played before. Points were largely incidental, but the following had the top results at the end.

1              Depak Patel  (25 points)

2              John Gan (24 points)

3              Darrell Brown, Nabetari Tioti (22 points)

5              Liam Johnston, Harry Chen (21 points)

7              Matthew Hobbs (20 points)

8              Lucas Yang, Michael Stechman, Om Thakur, Zhidong Yu (19 points)

Winter Interclub 2019 – Series One

Series One of Winter Interclub finished with intriguing nights for the Premier and Division One grades.

On Tuesday, the Brian Hearfield Cup for winning Premier One went to the UwU team of Hui-Ling Vong and James Harter, despite their 3-2 loss to the Dreamers. UwU only needed to win one match to clinch the title. Tarantulas and Dreamers were tied on points and matches won for second and a count back on sets showed tarantulas ahead with 41 sets won and 32 sets lost compared to Dreamers who had 37 sets both won and lost.

Premier Two saw Enforcers comfortably win their match and grade from the Tomatoes, Depak Patel and Daniel Rosner played well over the three weeks, only dropping two matches.

Wednesday saw the eagerly anticipated rematch of the previous week between Empire Enigmas and Titan Target, playing off this week in the final for the Chris Williams Cup. If a week is a long time in politics, the same can now be said about table tennis. Titan Target reversed last week’s 3-8 loss by winning 7-4. Incredibly, despite all six players being the same both weeks, the result of six matches (including two doubles) changed from the previous encounter. Hugo Yick, Tom Christie and Yufeng Wang played all eight weeks and deserved their win on the night.

Also on Tuesday Division Two had their grade championships with eight players entering. Hirotake Watanabe came out the winner from Ben Riddell, who also showed good form on the night. Peter Lowe beat Aaron Lan in the 3-4 playoff, while Maggie Dyer won the consolation event.

Next week sees the opportunities for Premier and Division One players who played this season to play in their grade championships. Be there before 7.00 pm to register.

Remember, the Wellington Open is coming up fast, scheduled for Sat/Sun 27 & 28 July. Register online.
