Weymouth & District Table Tennis League
Weymouth & District Table Tennis League serves Weymouth and surrounding areas in sunny Dorset on the southwest coastline of the United Kingdom which is also famously known as Jurrasic Coast. The main purpose and aim of the league is to promote and encourage the game of Table Tennis at all levels within the Dorset area. The league achieves this by organising and conducting league competitions, individual tournaments and handicap tournaments for clubs that are affiliated to the league and their registered players. The Weymouth & District Table Tennis League itself is affiliated to the English Table Tennis Association
The league is made up of three divisions with 10 teams in each division. The league season usually starts in September every year until end of April the following year. Please visit the league page for more information on league activities.
In the League this season, 28 teams and over 120 players have played in 234 matches in the three divisions. The league Committee
would like to thank all the captains for getting the results in promptly and for playing every match in every division, something
that doesn't happen very often. The electronic scorecards have worked very well, and the vast majority of results sent have
come in electronically. This helped considerably with keeping the league tables on the website up-to-date.
Congratulations to Springfield A, Hawks and Budmouth B for winning Div 1, Div 2 and Div 3 respectively. It was a hat-trick for Spring Field A this year but not without a stiff resistance from the YMCA A team who could only manage the runners-up spot for the second year in succession. The competition for top spot in Divisions 2 and 3 was particularly close and not decided until the last few games of the last match and in Division 2, the very last game and to the very last point. It was so close that Hawks just managed to win the league by just a solitary point leaving the Colliton X team in the second spot. Well done to both teams at Budmouth for winning through to the final of the Handicap Cup, where Budmouth B prevailed in a close fought final. They were twice within a whisker of being knocked out earlier in the competition, but managed to pull through and have thoroughly earned their trophy. The trophies were presented by none other than the league's long standing president Brain Copp.
The league tournament was again very well attended and apparently effortlessly organised and run. We all know that the Preston Table Tennis Club Weymouth and others put in a great deal of effort to stage the event so successfully. The committee would like to thank all who took part and congratulations to all of the winners. It was great to watch some excellent table tennis on the day.
