THE Aldworth Table Tennis Summer League, organised by Aldworth Table Tennis Club, has just finished its third season after two months of fierce competition.
In total 26 teams entered and every week more than 50 players were in action at Aldworth Science College.
In Division One junior pair Morgan Smith and Ben Cawston from Winchester were victorious after a 4-1 win in their final match of the season over Steve Peters made up of Steve Ng and Peter Howell.
Spin Doctors Nick Webb and Jared Binner took a 5-0 win over The Hopefuls Dave Kimberley and sub Peter Martin in their final match to take the runners-up spot.
Division Two was won by the Aldworth Aces pairing of Fallon Thompson and Mike Jones, who defeated runners up Slappers Sue Tompsett and Steve Armstrong 4-1 in the final match of the season.
Mark Every and Josh Manson’s The Hungover cruised to the Division Three title with a 5-0 win in the final week as the Desi Boys team of Prashanth Devarajappa and Kedar Mahabaleshwarkar took second place after a nail-biting 3-2 win over Monday Night Fever Melvyn Lovegrove and Blanka Bimi.
The top two in Division Four was decided in the final game of the final match as Speedsters Paul Speed and Alan Lipscombe edged out The Flying Frying Pans Dave Partridge and sub on the night Bob Garlick 3-2 to take the title.
Division Five was won by Balata Sports, who already had the title in the bag before the last match of the season, and the runners-up were ACx2 Aaron Clark and Adrian Cole, who won the last game of the last match to steal the runner up sport from Jamy who finished third.
In Division Six it was the M&M junior pairing of Miles Bromilow and Matt Deadman who took the title with a 3-2 loss to GC being enough in the final week – eventual runners up Pegasus could only manage a 3-2 win over The Backhanders.
The awards for senior and junior performance of the season went to Prashanth Devarajappa and Miles Bromilow respectively and were presented by Aldworth Table Tennis Club chairman Patrick Garlick.
The competition also helped raise over £1,000 to fund Basingstoke’s first ever team in the English Table Tennis Association’s Senior British League, where Aldworth TTC will compete at London Academy in Division Five South (the equivalent of the Football League’s conference south division) next month.
