Article excerpt

Byline: ALAN RANSOME

WITH eight wins from nine matches, Karina Le Fevre was the winner of the Ormesby Club's opening event of the new season, the Super 10 Table Tennis Tournament, which was played at the club's headquarters.

The match that won Le Fevre the title was against Paul Smith, the player who finished in second place. It finished 3-1. Smith won all his matches except the one against Le Fevre, including a win against Steven Brunskill.

Brunskill was the only player who beat Le Fevre by a score of deuce in the fifth game. However, Brunskill also lost to Martin Rutter, which meant the highest place that he could finish in the competition was third.

Le Fevre finished on the same number of wins as Smith, but the rules of this competition dictate that when two players are level, then the winner of the contest between them goes ahead.

Rutter was in fourth position with five wins.

The second Super 10 group was won by Northumberland's Jimmy Scope, who was unbeaten with eight wins.

The surprise of the competition was Aaron Uppal, who excelled to finish in second place with wins against Peter Wilkinson, Sam Hitchen and Gary Whyman.

He also did well against Scope to take the section winner to five games.

Third place went to Sam Hitchen with Peter Wilkinson in fourth.

The third section was made up mainly from the Ormesby Hopes squad.

Michael Ashwell won seven of eight matches.

He won the competition after a count-back as both Kane McDonald and Kane Goodenough also both won seven of their eight matches.

Ashwell lost his last game against Goodenough by 3-2, which was enough to clinch the title.

At the top of the section, McDonald beat Goodenough, while Goodenough beat Ashwell.

In fourth position was Michael Jones with four wins out of eight.
