Ellenborough 2016/17 Closed Tournament Results

This year the Club’s championships were held over a 5 days commencing with the junior events on Sunday 7th May.  Eight of the events were played to conclusion on the day and it was intended that the remaining seven finals would be played on Friday 12th.   However Semi Idowu who was a finalist in 3 of the events was unable to play on that day as he was away playing in another tournament. We then settled on playing the finals on Friday 26th May after checking that all finalists were available to play on that day. Sometimes things don’t go according to plan and sadly Terry Bateman who also figured in 3 of the finals was taken ill whilst on holiday in Cyprus so he was unable to play. It was decided that we could not once again re-schedule the finals night so last Friday we went ahead with the 4 that remained. Although there were fewer matches than originally planned the quality of the table tennis was excellent and those watching were treated to some great matches.

First up was the cadet singles which was won by Victor Ostapenko who very narrowly beat Camron Malcolm. You can see from the scores that this was an absolute nail biter 10-12,9-11,11-9,16-14,14-12.

This was then followed by the Vets Singles (over 40). Again, this was a terrific match with some amazing rallies but in the end Andrei Lapo beat Weiguang Hu in a 5 game match 11-8, 9-11, 2-11, 11-6, 11-4.

We then had a very entertaining Mixed Doubles final which was won by Gill Toumbas and Peter Brown against Soodabeth Yazdani and Abdul Olagboyega  11-5, 11-6, 11-6

The last final of the evening saw Andrei returning to the table to do battle with Semi. There was some great shots in this match but Andrei managed to stay on top and beat Semi in 3 exciting games 11-7, 11-8, 12-10.

When Terry is back to full health we will find a date when the still outstanding finals can be played.
