Yarmouth v Lowestoft report submitted by  Edna Fletcher on 14/08/14

The Annual friendly match between Yarmouth and Lowestoft has been revived and took place mid July.
In an exciting and relaxing atmosphere Yarmouth retained the shield by ten points. Representing Yarmouth for the top division; Martyn Clarke and Paul White held on to beat David Wilgoss and David Holland.

In the Junior section; Kaisey Bailey and Kane Simmonds were up against the formidable Kian Burgess and Rory Holland  and after some exciting games went down 6 points to 3.

The lower division of Mick Wright, Trevor Johnson and Bob Lamb came up trumps when they were challenged by Terry Shetliffe, Barney Garrod and Paul Burgess.

The two doubles were even three points each.

We would like to thank the Yarmouth Conservative Club for providing excellent refreshments thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Tony, Ray and Edna did their usual excellent stint in refereeing.

to view profiles for Edna Fletcher, Malcolm King and Bradley Burgess:
I would be interested in including profiles from other players / past players who have made a contribution to the Great Yarmouth & District Table Tennis League (GYDTTL) as well as the young juniors who are doing so well at the moment. Profiles of the juniors can be submitted for inclusion in the Great Yarmouth Mercury.

I would like the profiles to keep to the subject of Table Tennis and not digress and be an encouragement to present players and future players who might be interested in starting to play Table Tennis. Profiles should include name and age and be typed using Word or Wordpad and be as short as you like but no larger than A4 size. Please email to Peter Smith - Webmaster.

For this coming season GYDTTL are able to use the original cellulose balls but the following season (2015/16) we will have to use the new plastic balls. It is therefore best for players to buy just enough balls for this coming season.
