NEW PLAYERS SUCCEED IN FORUM TOURNAMENT
Two players who have just completed their first season playing for Hadleigh Forum were successful in the club’s annual tournament held at Eastwood Community Centre on Wednesday 27th May 2009.
The Handicap Singles event was won by Tony Mace (+10) who defeated Terry Faires (+13) in the Final. Success in recent years has been dominated by Premier/First Division players and it was good to see the final contested between two players who both played in Division 3 last winter.
Mick Tappenden was victorious in the Straight Singles defeating Paul Fawell, who himself overcame last year’s winner Garry Hartgrove in the semi-final.
The most keenly contested final was in the Handicap Doubles event won by David Thomas/Tony Mace (combined handicap +8) at deuce in the final game over Mick Tappenden/Colin Napper (combined handicap scratch).
All in all, an enjoyable evening of table tennis.
