Great matches in Ac­ti­vate

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT -

Round four of Ac­ti­vate Nagam­bie’s Wed­nes­day night com­pe­ti­tion saw six­teen ea­ger play­ers flock to the Me­chan­ics Hall.

As usual the night in­volved some great matches, all played in good spir­its. Much fun was had by all. Your loyal news­pa­per reporter claimed the hon­ours in group one but was well chal­lenged by the pen­hold style of Ian Clinch and Chris­tine Schindler.

Tatura’s Hank Doller held firm against the two chal­lengers with his renowned serve, swerve and trade­mark back­hand smashes to fin­ish sec­ond.

In group two, Chris Nanere stood tall to dom­i­nate all play­ers with his ver­sa­tile re­triev­ing style.

Dy­namic Dave Cot­ter­ill fin­ished best of the rest, just ahead of the left-handed top­spin game of Kil­more’s James God­kin.

Group three was a close af­fair with three of the four play­ers tied on two wins each.

Mike Thomas, wield­ing his newly pur­chased bat, just man­aged to edge out Sey­mour’s Alby Evans by the barest of mar­gins.

Third place was filled by lo­cal warrior, John Bond.

With Wed­nes­day night num­bers on the rise a fourth group was played where Reg Dickinson flexed his ta­ble ten­nis mus­cles to take the top podium spot.

Sec­ond place went to Wally Grin­pukel af­ter a tight 14-12 de­cid­ing game against Von­nie Deer­ing.

Don’t for­get we don’t only of­fer com­pet­i­tive ta­ble ten­nis.
