The A Team’s Cup Plan Starts To Come Together! (T&D Round One)
There was a break in the Bournemouth and District Table Tennis league programme last week as the week was given over to Round One of the Annual Times and Directory Handicap Cup competition. The New Milton Club entered nine teams of whom five won their matches to go through to Round Two.
The Cup provides an interesting diversion from the league programme in that it enables teams from across all divisions to be drawn against each other in a handicapped competition, best of three matches up to 31, with no doubles.
The Premier’s A team, who were runners-up last season, booked their place in Round Two at the expense of their Div 3 club mates in the G team, who are now out of the competition. Joining the A team in Round Two are the B, C, D and F teams. The E, J and K teams live to fight another day as they will now be drawn into the “Plate” competition. Full results are below:-
New Milton G (Div 3) 0 New Milton A (Premier) 6
