Great matches in Activate
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.
A final reminder that the club’s annual general meeting is being held on Sunday, May 21.
There will be lunch at 12.30 pm with the meeting following at 1.30 pm.
It’s important that as many members as possible attend.
At least 20 members are needed for the meeting to goahead or else it will have to be re-scheduled.

We look forward to seeing everyone there.
Happy hour continues every Thursday from 5 pm.
It’s a great opportunity to catch up with fellow club members during the off season.
