The Oban Times - - Sport -

FORT Wil­lam`s Table Ten­nis Club held their an­nual end- of­sea­son pre­sen­ta­tion even­ing at the Innsea­gan House Ho­tel re­cently fol­low­ing the fi­nal week’s matches.

Club chair­man John Grant an­nounced the win­ners and run­ners-up, and the prizes were pre­sented by An­gus MacDon­ald.

Fol­low­ing the pre­sen­ta­tions, mem­bers and their part­ners en­joyed an ex­cel­lent buf­fet that was made avail­able by the ho­tel.

In Di­vi­sion 1, Steven Crook proved too strong for his op­po­nents and he again re­mained un­beaten to re­tain the cham­pi­onship. As in the pre­vi­ous sea­son, Monte Bleas­dale claimed the run­ner-up spot.

In Di­vi­sion 2, Aileen MacFadzean claimed the ti­tle for the first time as she re­mained un­beaten, with Stu­art Steele tak­ing the run­ner-up spot.

The open sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion was again won by Steven Crook when he beat sur­prise fi­nal­ist Fiona Clarke.

In the fi­nal of the dou­bles com­pe­ti­tion, John Grant and Aileen MacFazdean over­came Monte Bleas­dale and Neil Cameron to claim the tro­phy.

A spokesper­son for the club said: ‘ We had a very suc­cess­ful night on Satur­day at Innsea­gan Ho­tel. The buf­fet served was en­joyed by the club mem­bers and fam­i­lies, bring­ing a very good sea­son to an end.

‘The best new­comer award went to John Steel. We are also de­lighted that our top player Steven Crook has been se­lected to play for Scot­land. Now we are all look­ing for­ward to our new sea­son start­ing Mon­day Oc­to­ber 2 and would wel­come new mem­bers who would like to join our club.’

The club have again en­joyed a suc­cess­ful sea­son de­spite the loss of some of last sea­son`s play­ers. New play­ers are al­ways wel­come, as no mat­ter what their ex­ist­ing skill level is, coach­ing is al­ways avail­able from the more ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers to those who con­sider them­selves to be be­gin­ners.
