TT1314, Week 15

Current standings in division 3 of the Ipswich & District table tennis league make for interesting reading, if you've got too much time on your hands. Battling for that crucial third spot are ISC D, Bright Stars and our humble selves. Top of the heap are the mighty Manor Club and righteous Rosary Yellow, tonight's opponents. Another crunch match, then.

Down at the Con Club back in October, we settled for a draw, neither side perhaps too happy with that result. Same line-ups tonight: for us, Ed, Yang and (if he turns up) Andy, and for them, tiring Bob, tableslapping Dave and tenacious Tony. In brief:

  • pleasing 2/3 for Ed, recovering from an opening five-ender defeat to Tony
  • pleasing 2/3 for Yang, edging past Dave before also losing to Tony
  • OK 1/3 for Andy, launching into his games without a warm-up and doing well to beat Bob

So far, so similar to last time: 5-4 up with the doubles to play. Ed and Yang were never really in it, truth be told. That'll be another equitable draw.
