The New Milton Table Tennis Club signed off the first half of the Bournemouth and District league programme by winning five out of their eight matches. One of these wins came at the expense of one of their own teams as the C team beat the B team in their Div 1 derby.

Div 3 saw the G team wrest the top spot from Ringwood B as Milton beat the erstwhile leaders 8-2 home at Arnewood School. Captain Frank Handy came up with yet another hat-trick and Andrew Daish and Matthew Winter bagged a brace apiece. Handy and Daish combined efficiently in the doubles to land the maximum four points.
