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.
After the departure of talisman Derek Wood, top players Jon Bissett and Sean Ferguson helped Springfield A to their 3rd league title in 4 years. YMCA were close but not close enough to secure the trophy and only managed to finish in the second spot. This year's division 2 trophy was a very close contest between Preston A and Land Registry where Preston A clinched the trophy by only a few points. The first half of the season saw Preston A shooting up the league tables. However, Land Registry picked up pace during the second half of the season but in the end fell short of a few points for the coveted trophy. This season belongs to Budmouth A in division 3 where they haven't lost a match. Inspired by their guru and mentor Neil Hardisty the young guns from Budmouth A asserted their dominance by playing scintillating table tennis to clinch the top spot convincingly. Preston C finished in second place and also came runners-up in the handicap cup by losing to Colliton B in a very close encounter. The trophies were presented by the league's president Brain Copp and ETTA's regional development officer for the South West, Chris Brown.
