Ashford “B” Take 2018 Byfleet Handicap Cup Title

The final of the 2018 Byfleet & District TTL Handicap Cup took place at Ashford Table Tennis Centre on Wednesday April 11th, 2018.

The 238 Handicap advantage enjoyed by a determined Ashford B side proved too much of a hurdle for the Ashford A team to overcome.

The enormity of the task was apparent from the first rubber, with the ever improving Gwynne Penny taking the first game 21-18 against Don Cunningham. Don recovered well in the second game winning 21-16.

In the second rubber, Geoff Wines tried to restore the situation beating a determined Peter Hillier 21-12, 21-11.

Peter Adams then also worked hard to bring the match back for the A team, beating Ray Pereira 21-11 and a much needed 21-4.

With the match still in the balance, Don did well to beat Peter Hillier 21-8 in the first game of the fourth rubber, however a determined Peter fought back to only lose the second game 21-19.

Gwynne then began to bring the match firmly back for the B team losing only 21-19, 21-17 to Peter Adams.

In the sixth rubber, Ray improved the B team’s hold on the match losing the first game 21-17 to Geoff, who went on to win the second 21-7. However, by this time the game was virtually won for the B team and the win was cemented in the last rubber to be played, with Peter Adams managing a 21-8, 21-13 victory over Peter Hillier.

The last two rubbers were not played with the B team having won by an unassailable 421 points to 297.

The match was played in tremendous spirit and attracted an audience of a number of non-playing team mates from both teams, which was good to see.

Congratulations to Ashford “B”:

  • Gwynne Penny
  • Peter Hillier
  • Ray Pereira

My thanks go to the Ashford Club for hosting the event.
