The best individual performance this week was the win that young Liam Bradbury conjured up for Quainton B in their 9-1 loss to Sports B.

Having been outwitted by Tim Cheek in the previous game, Liam fought tooth and nail with Gary Jones to move 2-1 up in sets (13-11 in the third), only to lose 11-4 in the fourth. But he regrouped and took the fifth set 13-11 for a notable personal triumph.

The Bellingdon three, Jim Welch, Lawrence Chamberlain and Stuart Brown, all beat an out-of-sorts Jon Abungan for Haddenham A, but Andy Misseldine and Darren Palmer held the team together to win 7-3.

Two-man Sports A lost 7-3 to Haddenham B despite a sparkling performance from one of Aylesbury’s best players, Steve Munson. Steve despatched Chris Hawkes and Maan Younis in three sets and Sanga Quamina in four in a superb display of high-quality table tennis.

Elsewhere, Ben Rolfe enjoyed two wins at the expense of Quainton A but his Sports C team lost 7-3, with Chris Weatherby winning his first game for Quainton. Chris and Ben played out a thrilling game which the latter won 11-7 in the fifth set.

Sports D trio, Andrew Eggleton, Terry Lau and Atif Kaudri won 8-2 at Longwick A, for whom Mike Bellamy picked up two wins.
