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.
