2022 Winter Interclub – Series 1

Starts @ Empire from 7:10pm Tuesdays May 17 / Wednesdays May 18 (eight weeks).

Draws & Final Results – Series 1

Teams

Structure

Premier grades (Premier 1, Premier 2) on Tuesdays
* 2-player teams (2 x singles best of 7 & a doubles best of 5)

Division 1 grade on Wednesdays
* 3-player teams (9 singles & 2 doubles matches – as usual)

Division 2 grade on Tuesdays
* 3-player teams (9 singles & 2 doubles matches – as usual)

Teams are entered only from clubs – reach out to your club contact to be included.

Partial teams may be entered and we will endeavour to form composite teams.  Extra players may be entered for a team but only two (for Premier grades) or three (for Division 1 & 2 grades) may play for that team on any specific evening.

We will seed teams and limit the number of teams per grade to eight but each team may request a preferred highest grade.

Each grade will include a round robin with every team playing every other team.

Replacement players can be sourced from a lower grade or as approved by the interclub committee.  E.g. a Premier 2 player can fill in for a Premier 1 team (with another lower grade player filling in for the Premier 2 player’s team).

If a player is deemed to be of a certain standard through being named in a particular grade (and confirmed by the interclub committee at the time of naming teams in Grades), then that player can play any number of fixtures for a higher grade while still continuing to play in the lower grade. However players can fill in for higher grades in only one team during the series.

Entries close Wednesday 11 May. Late entries accepted only to fill byes in grades.

Note: treat this Series 1 as a distinct competition.  There will be a Series 2 (anticipated for after mid-year) however the format for Series 2 is TBD by the TTW interclub committee.  Teams would be re-entered for Series 2 & may be seeded & graded differently than Series 1 effectively this may mean some promotion/relegation vs. Series 1 (with or without playoff TBD).

The usual Code of Conduct will apply.

2021 Winter Interclub

2021 Summer Competition

The Summer Interclub 2021 competition has finished with some close playoff matches. See attached tables for the full Series results.

In Division One, HYJW (Hugo Yick and Jack Webb) reversed the round robin defeat by the same score when they beat Empire Tigers (Manish Ahlawat and Robert Dias) 3-2 in a sudden death, one set doubles match. The two teams had been at the top of the grade all series and fought hard for the title. Division One had many close matches during the series with nearly a third of fixtures finishing with the one set doubles tie breaker.

In Division Two, LJMS (Liam Johnston and Michael Stechman) held off Daleks (Peter Bloor and Josh Brown 3-1 to take the title. The standard was a bit wider in this division, but there were still plenty of good players to give the leading teams some challengers.

Thanks to all players for their participation. Next Interclub will be the first Series of Winter Interclub commencing in May. In the meantime, we have the Autumn Open happening on 1&2 May. Make sure you enter!

2020 November Table Tennis Competition

The 2020 version of the November ‘Four Wednesdays’ competition has finished following some weeks of interesting and competitive play. Points were accumulated over the weeks, based on the closeness or otherwise of singles matches and a few doubles thrown in. A total of 29 players participated, 23 of them playing all four weeks. Thanks to all players for their commitment.

The winner this year was Manish Ahlawat, who had led from the second week, although he suffered a couple of losses in the final week. Runner up was Mat Hobbs, closely followed by Depak Patel and Darrell Brown. Congratulations to each of these players.

2020 Winter Interclub – Wrap

With Covid having an impact, only one series of Winter Interclub was held in 2020. A big thanks to those who participated.

Premier was split into two groups, streamed by TTNZ rating points to try and concentrate the talent. Two player teams played off and some good matches were seen. In Premier One, the Waterloo Wasps came out on top, with Sean Hanson going through unbeaten and supported well by Vance Kelly who improved with regular hard play. Premier Two saw the Empire Echoes come through on top after the round robin, but they were overcome by the Titan Tarantulas in the final.

Division One proved an interesting grade with many solid players and some close matchups between the top teams. The Empire Enigmas benefited from only using three players and deservedly won the grade, although they will look back on several close threats to their unbeaten run.

Division Three had only five teams and Karori Kaboom were the top team, scoring heavily most weeks. There were a number of new players in this grade and they will have benefitted from the experience.

Each grade had its own Grade Championships with the main results below:

Premier One
          Winner: Depak Patel
          Runner Up: Darrell Brown
Premier Two
          Winner: Manish Ahlawat
          Runner Up: Nabetari Tioti
Division One
          Winner: Sabine Westenra
          Runner Up: Om Thakur
Division Two
          Winner: Quoc Dinh
          Runner Up: Roger Watkin

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)

In the Premier Grade, Titan Terriers beat Empire Enforcers to win the Tommy Williams Cup.

In Division One, Onslow Ogres beat Empire Enigmas to win the Chris Williams Cup.

Om on the attack

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.

Series 2 of Winter Interclub finished recently.  Premier played for the Brian Hearfield Trophy for Series 1 but for series 2, the Tommy Williams Cup was at stake. The Empire Enforcers retained the Cup by beating a Waterloo/Titan composite team 7-3 in the final. The same four players (Bruno Omizu, james Harter, Daniel Rosner and Depak Patel) won in 2017 and 2018. The final contest was exactly that, with only three matches of the ten being won in straight sets.

Titan Terriers finished third by beating Empire Entertainers 6-5 and Empire eagles beat an understrength Titan Tomatoes 6-5.

Division One contest the Chris Williams Trophy in each Series and the Onslow Ogres retained the Trophy by beating old foes Waterloo Wolves 7-3. The final mirrored that of Premier with only three matches being straight set victories.

Division Two final was played between Waterloo Whales (top after the round robin) and Titan Youngsters. The Youngsters got off to a fast start and raced away to a 9-2 victory.

Both these divisions played Grade Championships the week after their finals. Eight players competed in Division One with Mat Hobbs (Onslow) beating Michael Onganon (Empire) 11-9 in the fifth set. Liam Johnston (Empire) beat Craig Gear (Waterloo) in the third/fourth playoff. Six played in the Division Two event with Reg Feuz (Karori) winning the round robin from Peter Lowe (Empire) with Josh Brown (Empire) third.
