WCPP UK Qualifier 27th October 2019
held at Ellenborough Table Tennis Club, Enfield

A total of 52 players entered this year’s competition and, after a local pre-qualifier on Thursday 24th October, 40 players remained to play in the main event on Sunday 27th.  On the day there were three withdrawals, due to travel problems or work commitments, leaving 37 players who actually competed on the day.

The day started with six groups of 6 or 7 players playing a round-robin with the top four in each group progressing to the knockout stages.  The six group winners were Kazeem Adeleke, Ethan Walsh, Matt Ware, Ashley Stokes, Adam Nutland and Paul McCreery.  These six plus two group runners-up, Mark Mitchell and Egle Adolemyte, received byes into the last 16 whilst the other 16 group qualifiers competed for the remaining 8 places.

The standard this year was noticeably higher than last year and competition was fierce throughout all the rounds.   The closest result of the day was Ian Johnston’s win over Jogenes Senorin by 14-15, 15-14, 15-14.  In the last 16, five of the eight matches went to the deciding game.

The final was between Matt Ware of England and Paul McCreery of Northern Ireland, with Matt winning a nail-biting contest by 15-13, 15-13.

Qualification Certificates were presented to the two finalists by Ellenborough’s joint Coaching Officer Sandy Nash, and she is shown here with winner Matt Ware (left), the umpire for the final Derek Johnston (WCPP Chief Umpire) and runner-up Paul McCreery.

All the detailed knockout stage results, including the final, are shown on the attached two pages.

The televised WCPP Finals will be held at Alexandra Palace, London, N22 7AY on the 25th and 26th January 2020.
