TA­BLE TEN­NIS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

DEN­HAM Vil­lage A have opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the Chalfonts & Dis­trict Ta­ble Ten­nis League Di­vi­sion One go­ing into the Christ­mas break,

Danny Lewis and Mitchell Jones won in straight sets as Den­ham dis­missed their Vil­lage B sib­lings 9-1 to put day­light be­tween them­selves and Chiltern in sec­ond spot, de­spite the lat­ter’s 10-0 de­mo­li­tion of a two-man Rick­mansworth B team, cour­tesy of Mike Atkin­son, Mark Croucher and Chris Haines.

Vil­lage C leap into third place by sweep­ing aside Chal­font A 8-2, thanks to max­i­mum points from James Whit­field & long-time cam­paigner Roland Stan­bridge.

All the matches in Di­vi­sion Two fin­ished 8-2, with pace-set­ters Den­ham Vil­lage D over­com­ing Vil­lage F to build a 15-point lead over Hilling­don, whose match was post­poned.

Vil­lage D’s star ju­nior player Gau­rav Aravind chalked up yet another max­i­mum and now tops the av­er­ages with 12 wins in 12 matches.

Rick­mansworth C had a hand­some win against Vil­lage J, thanks to a 100 per cent dis­play from their ju­nior An­drew Gras­sick, who fi­nally put pay to Lee Clark’s un­beaten record.

Mean­while, Bob Baines ex­ceeded all ex­pec­ta­tions by emerg­ing un­scathed in steer­ing his Vil­lage E team to vic­tory over Ick­en­ham URC and keep­ing them firmly in third spot.
