CAT D con­tinue to dom­i­nate divi­sion two of the Hinck­ley Ta­ble Ten­nis League. In their re­cent matches they have beaten Mar­ket Bosworth B by 10 sets to nil, and they fol­lowed up by de­feat­ing Cat G by 9 sets to 1 and Cat E by 8 sets to 2.

They came across stiffer op­po­si­tion how­ever when they took on G Ward E just prior to the hol­i­day. Dave Richard­son (GWE) was in sparkling form col­lect­ing an ex­cel­lent max­i­mum and in­flict­ing rare de­feats on both Ian Nixon and Colin Good­man (both Cat D). Daugh­ter Alana Richard­son (GWE) fought hard to win her match with Martin Good­man (CAT D) but the Bar­well side lost the dou­bles with Cat D run­ning out win­ners by 6 sets to 4. GWE are build­ing up a head of steam ris­ing to­wards the top three in the ta­ble with use­ful wins over Cat F by 6 sets to 4, Cat G by 10 sets to nil and Mar­ket Bosworth 2 by 9 sets to 1.

Sec­ond placed Mar­ket Bosworth 1’s ti­tle hopes ap­pear to have it the buff- ers with suc­ces­sive de­feats by GWC and Hit ’n’ Hope B. In their game with G Ward C the Bar­well side raced into a 5 sets to 2 lead be­fore Shaun Gar­rett (MB1) met Dick Jenk­ins (GWC), this was the match of the night with Jenk­ins run­ning out win­ner 13-11 in the fifth game. G Ward C fi­nally win­ning by 6 sets to 4. Mkt Bosworth then lost to Hit ‘n’ Hope B by 7 sets to 3 be­fore bounc­ing back with a 9 sets to 1 vic­tory over Cat G.

G Ward C gained a close win over Hit ‘n’ Hope 1 run­ning out win­ners by 6 sets to 4. Jenk­ins again starring with three good wins. In their other matches GW C saw off Cat F by 7 sets to 3 and then in their game against G Ward F we had the un­usual match where grand­son Luke Hask­ins (GWC) took on his Grandad Roger Hill (GWF) in an all fam­ily af­fair. Hask­ins tak­ing the fam­ily brag­ging rights with a three straight game vic­tory.

The two Hit ‘n’ Hope sides sit to­gether in the league ta­ble in fifth and sixth place with only a few points sep­a­rat­ing them. When they met re­cently it turned into a very close af­fair. The A side raced into a three sets to 2 lead but then suc­ces­sive vic­to­ries by Steve Law­ton (H’n’H B) over Bryan Moy­lan (H’n’HA) and Chris Tay­lor (H’n’H B) over “the Doc Har­ri­son” (H’n’H A) put the A side in front by 4 sets to 3, A vic­tory in the dou­bles by Law­ton and Alan Mor­ris over “the Doc Har­ri­son and Ian Nixon claimed the win by 6 sets to 4 for Hit’n’Hope B.
