I found it hard to find the time to write this one after playing table tennis most nights. There are a couple of mentions to games in that period.
My team, Key Centre B managed to overcome an improving Bear Flat C team in the handicap cup, 5-4 on Monday 19th Nov. John Hunter is their danger man and he defeated an inform Ricardo Perpetua to force the tie to come down to the final match of the evening.
Then on Thursday 22nd Nov Ping Pong Fight Club came to Bristol and members of Keynsham TTC came down to score some of the games. A great night was had by all as 8 different city centre business came together to battle it out. Be sure to check it out next time it comes to Bristol!
Anyway back to the league games:
It was back to league action this week. Terry Parkins and Rick Jemmott secured maximum’s to keep up Chippenham A’s fine form as they ran out 21-12 winners over Oldfield in the Premier Division.
Scott Cooper was MOTM, in Chippenham B’s away win over Bath Invaders A, 15-25. It wasn’t a good week for the Invader’s club as the B team went down 5-30, at home to Oldfield A. Phil Marshall, Ali Pearson and Dean Haskett all gaining maximums in their singles games.
There was another convincing win in the next game with Oldfield B winning 28-11 against Bathford A. Paul Redman and Martyn Le Butt winning all of their games. A Kevin Williams maximum wasn’t enough to stop a Chippenham whitewash this week, as Yatton Keynell A suffered a 19-22 defeat to Chippenham B.
In Division One Bathford D went down 9-29 against Radstock A. Chris Bennett and Keren Millard scored maximum points whilst Colin Thomas gained a win for the hosts, deuce in the final set against Phil Ware.

Finally, Yatton Keynell B come through 20-17 against Ensleigh A. Ian Clark’s maximum wasn’t enough for the visitors as Adam Dawes and Andrew Purkiss scored 7 each.
In Division Two first met second and it was first placed Batheaston who maintained their unbeaten run to the start of the season. Winning 23-18 at home Dennis Townsend’s men were too steady throughout with Nigel Pedley getting MOTM.
This gave Oldfield E and Radstock C a chance to make up ground on the top two. Oldfield came through their away game to Chippenham E 13-23, despite Garry Young gaining a maximum for the hosts. Radstock C won 24-10 against Bathford D, with Radstock’s Simon Young getting MOTM with 9 points.
