In the last match of the season in the Middlesbrough & District Table Tennis League, Ormesby A won the Knockout Cup competition by defeating Travel Hub CIC Nomads D by 5 sets to 3 in the final. For Ormesby Michael Young and Michael Boyce both win 2 of their 3 sets whilst Karl Shaw won one. For Travel Hub Bob Evans won both his sets whilst Mark Smith won one.
The closest sets were played by Simon Sharples for Nomads who came very close to beating Boyce and Shaw and if these chances had been converted, Travel Hub would have been the cup champions.
Middlesbrough league Championship held on Sunday 13 April 2014 at Ormesby Table Tennis Club
14 year old Josh Harland became the youngest player for many years to dominate the Middlesbrough League Table Tennis Championships which took place at the Ormesby Club on Sunday, winning a total of 5 titles.
To win the Senior titles as well as the Junior, Harland, who plays for Ormesby and lives in Redcar, demonstrated a great deal of improvement in his play over the last few months and if this progress continues, has the possibility of being a top player in the future.
The main event, the Open Singles, was won by Harland by defeating the holder, Martin Rutter, by 3 games to 1 in the semi final and another Ormesby player, Dave Ashwell, in straight games in the final.
Harland scored his second victory over Rutter in the Division 1 Singles. This time the match went to 5 sets. Rutter led by 2 games to 1 after winning the third at 11-9. Harland took command in the final two games to win at 11-8 and 11-7. Harland joined with Rutter to win the doubles, winning a 4 set final against Peter Wilkinson and Michael Young.
Harland’s other two victories came in the Junior (Under 18) Singles where he beat Calum White in straight games in the final and the Cadet (Under 15) Singles where Michael Jones reached the final, only to be beaten in 3 straight games.
The Veteran Singles (Over 40) was a hard fought event which was won by Peter Wilkinson. In the final group Wilkinson defeated Michael Young and Dave Ashwell. Young came into his own in the Handicap Singles where he scored a very narrow victory over Ryan Nassau by 21-19 in the third and deciding game.
The Division 2 winner was Bruce Lowther of Travel Hub who beat Michael Jones in 3 straight games in the final. Kieran Wardell won an epic Under 12 title, beating his Ormesby team mate James Dale. Wardell won the first 2 games comfortably but Dale won the next 2 with Wardell taking the decider by the narrowest margin of 15-13.
The Wheelchair Singles was won by Brian Hollaway who beat Noel Thomas in the final whilst the Hardbat Singles competition, played with bats that were popular in decades past, was won by Young who had a very narrow victory over Rutter by 31-30.
