League Cup Final report submitted by  Edna Fletcher on 17/10/14

The final of the League Cup was held at the Gt Yarmouth Conservative Club and contested by Kings  “A” and Donic Demons- the Donics were unable to field a third player thus putting great pressure on Joseph and Jacob Goss.

They started their task with two good victories against Lewis Carby and Curtis Beales playing clever shots and portraying excellent footwork.

Joseph then came up against Mike Woods and found his style a stumbling block going down 21 – 20 in the second. Back bounced the Donics with Joseph claiming victory in two against Lewis in two straight - could the youngsters keep the momentum going?

The fifth game was vital- Joseph took the first set but Curtis battled back to take the next two at 21 – 20 /  21 – 19.

Jacob gained victory over Mike at  21 – 19 in the third.

Final score – KINGS “A”  5     Donic Demons  4

An excellent match - but the Donics must take the plaudits for the way in which they pushed Kings all the way with some aggressive, attacking and entertaining table tennis. 

Next tournament is the Autumn November handicap on Thursday November 20th .Entries please by Sunday 16th to the Tournament Officer.

Notice to all Secretaries and Players: Submitted by Ryan Moore on 11/09/14  
Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond their control, both Cliff Park Teams have notified the committee today that due to venue restrictions effecting their home night of Monday they will have to change nights to a Tuesday, effective immediately. Cliff Park also requires visiting teams to arrive by 7.00pm and to start the matches by 7.15pm. Please will all secretaries take note of this change and inform their players accordingly, although notification will be sent out via email as well. This change was received after the handbooks went to print therefore is now incorrect as printed.

to view profiles for Edna Fletcher, Malcolm King, Martyn Clarke 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.

Table Tennis England's statement about the new plastic balls. Click on the following link:: Plastic Ball Statement
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.
