The New Milton Table Tennis Club came up with four wins out of ten matches in the Bournemouth and District league last week. The club’s best win came in Div 2 as the E team whitewashed Bmth Sports F 10-0 down at the Grange, courtesy of hat-tricks from Frank Handy (captain), James Lewis and Peter Daish, recording his first treble of the season. However, the F team were on the wrong end of a whitewash in Div 3 as they were hammered 0-10 by Nimrod A down at the Winton YMCA. Captain Malcolm Nash commented afterwards that it certainly didn’t feel like a “0-10”, especially as half the matches went all the way to five ends. Milton were certainly worth a point but unfortunately they came away with nowt.


The club’s next best win came in the Premier as the A team put Winton YMCA B to the sword with a 9-1 win home at the Grange. Captain Steve Hemmings led from the front with his second hat-trick of the campaign and Phil Handy marked his first appearance with a treble. Wheelchair player Shaun Newcomb played up from Div 1 and put in a magnificent display to bag a brace and help his captain to win the doubles in three straight ends.

The G team had a busy week in Div 3 as they played two matches including one carried over from the previous week. They got off to a good start by taking maximum points off Broadstone C in an 8-2 victory at Mudeford Wood, courtesy of a second hat-trick from Clive Pitts and a brace apiece from Simons Daish and Golding. However, the Gees were missing Pitts for their rearranged match against Bmth Sports H who held them to a 5-5 draw at the Grange. The two Simons put in a repeat performance and forced the draw with a humdinger of a doubles match which they edged 17-15 in the fifth and final set.

The J team came up with their second win in Div 5 as they beat Winton YMCA F 7-3 at the Grange including a second hat-trick from 13 year old Elliott Storr-Smith in his maiden season.  Full results details below:
