TT1314, Week 9: Taking The Biscuit

(another guest review by Kevin Cockerill: thanks, Kev!)

This week we’ve been mostly eating ... Bisquits. Not your normal boring ol 'hob nobs', oh no: these were the "Mcvities Tasties" (other biscuits are available). We were playing host to the youthful Kingsfleet team this week, which included a pleasant drive back home to Container Town with Frank, their senior player, who has been playing ping pong for 65 years! Gosh how his arms must ache.

Well, our team comprised Andy (who, still managed not to turn up on time even though he was staying on site), Steve and myself - Kev. As Andy was biking home he wanted to play his matches ASAP to miss ol' Jack F on his journey, so we were playing two tables.

1-0, 1-1, 1-2, 2-2, 3-2, and 3-3 it went as they matched us at every step and stomp, then a break through. Both Andy and I won matches and made it 5-3, meaning that we still are the only unbeaten team in the whole league!

Steve and I found ourselves in the doubles which we easily won 3-0, sweeping away the opposition just as convincing as the club’s Broom. The match was won with a well deserved/placed 'edge' shot from yours truly, which was a fitting end to the evening, as the guests had a great number of these dreaded net/edge shots throughout the night.
