THE first round of Chalfont Table Tennis League matches in 2015 produced one or two unexpected outcomes.
The race at the top of Division One is hotting up, with Chiltern taking over the reins from Denham Village A, having inflicted their first defeat by reversing the score of their previous encounter, 7-3, in the return match.
Danny Lewis finally relinquished his 100 per cent record at the hands of Mark Croucher, who scored a maximum.
Chiltern also defeated Rickmansworth B 8-2, with another unblemished performance from Croucher, and also whitewashed Chalfont B 10-0, with yet another clean sheet from Croucher replicated by Mike Atkinson and Lawrence Chamberlain.
A two-man Rickmansworth A team managed to pick up four points against Village C thanks to a flawless display from Kevin Williams, while their B team succumbed to Village B 8-2, with Nigel Naylor-Smith and Simon Barnes securing all their singles and doubles points.
Chalfont A also breezed through against their B siblings 9-1, with Ian Hopkinson and Mark Scholfield winning all their matches.
In Division Two, Denham Village D thumped Rickmansworth D 10-0, thereby consolidating their lead at the top, courtesy of maximum points from their top trio of Scott Thompson, James Johnson and Mick Lowens.
Two further whitewashes were inflicted by George Reidy, Daniel Toppin and Ali Tanberk of Hillingdon over Ickenham URC, and by David Cottle, Shaun Bausor and Carys Evans of Village F over siblings Village H.
The final match between Denham Villages G and J was a much closer affair, won narrowly by the G team 6-4.
