British Premier League

Sam Mabey - Man of the Match in Ormesby

Sam Maybe – Player Of the Match

Ormesby moved to the top of the British Table Tennis League on Friday evening with a 4-3 victory over the Northern Ireland team, Ormeau, in Belfast.

Ormesby’s 4 wins were scored by Sam Mabey and Ryan Jenkins who both won their two singles.  Mabey was nominated as Man of the Match after he beat Ashley Robinson 3-0 in his first singles and then beat Zack Wilson by the same score in this second match.  Jenkins had more difficulty.  In the opener he beat Wilson by 12-10 in the fourth game and was also taken to four games in his second set against James Skelton where Ryan won 11-8, 11-5 in the third and fourth games.

Ormeau’s three sets were recorded in the surprise doubles win when Wilson and Robinson beat Jenkins and Mabey in straight games.  Ormesby’s third player, Ben Piggott lost his two sets against Skelton and Robinson.

Ormesby are now top of the table with a maximum 9 points from the 3 matches played so far.  Ormeau are second with 7 points from 3.  Third is Archway Peterborough who have 6 points from 2 matches.  Ormesby entertain Archway in their next match on the 23rd January 2022.

Thomas Rayner Batts BPL 29.10.21

Thomas Rayner

Ormesby are amongst the leaders at the top of the Premier Division of the British Table Tennis League after their 5-2 victory against the Essex Club BATTS in Harlow on Saturday 30th October.

The match was closer than the score line suggests.  Ormesby’s Sam Mabey was the most successful player winning both his singles and combining with Helshan Weerasinghe to win the doubles.  Thomas Rayner made his contribution with a 14-12 victory in his second singles over Jack Bennett who is ranked 28 places above Rayner in the England Senior Rankings List.

The match started with the first two singles when Bennett, against expectations, secured at 11-9 in the deciding game victory over Ormesby number 1, Helshan Weerasinghe.  Mabey won his first match 11-8 in the decider against Shayan Siraj.

With the score at 1-1, Weerasinghe and Mabey won comfortably in the doubles.

In the next two singles Ethan Walsh for BATTS beat Rayner in straight games and Weerasinghe won 11-7 in the fifth against Siraj.

This meant that Ormesby had to win one of the two remaining sets to clinch the victory but at one stage this looked in jeopardy as both Mabey and Rayner were 2 games to 1 down in their singles, but Mabey recovered to win the fourth at 11-7 against Walsh and the decider 11-4 whilst Rayner produced an excellent result to beat Bennett at 14-12 in the 5th game.

This victory puts Ormesby in second place in the League table behind Archway Peterborough on sets difference as both teams have maximum of 6 points from the opening two fixtures.

Ormesby’s next fixture is away in Northern Ireland to Ormeau on the 26th November.

Ormesby at Ormesby Hall

Ormesby Hall 8
What a great day Malcolm and I had at the local National Trust Property, Ormesby Hall. The weather was wonderful and dare we say, perhaps a little too hot.
Ormesby Hall 7
The event was very popular with lots of people who were very interested in playing table tennis and many of the children wanting to challenge their parents to a game.
Ormesby Hall 5
It was really good meeting some of the players who had played at the old club as far back as the seventies.
Ormesby Hall 4
We even had Jasper a small black and white dog who would have loved to have joined in a game – perhaps it was only the ball he was after.
