Your support is urgently needed for Elstow TTC's latest fundraising venture - The Beetle Drive. This hilarious game is being held at Clapham Village Hall on Friday 29th June 6.30 - 9.30 pm. Your host for the evening is our very own charismatic (or should that be asthmatic?) Mr David Fosbrook, ably assisted by the Debbie McGee of the Elstow Monday Over 60s Club, Mrs Maureen Cooper. This dynamic duo will ensure a good time is had by all and that beetles will be created with absolutely no skill required at all - the perfect antidote to table tennis. Your 7.00 ticket will get you a fish and chip supper and, of course, there is a bar. We are very keen to make this a success as we are trying to include people from the local Parkinson's exercise classes. Bring your family and friends for a novel night out. Tickets are available from Maureen and Liz. See them in person on Tuesday evenings at the Revolution TTC Summer League at Lincroft School, Oakley or contact Liz on 07786 100161.

(L. to R. Najam Sheraz, Phil Crossley, Tim Thomas, Dave Beddall - League Chairman)

Congratulations to Phoenix C team comprising of Najam Sheraz, Phil Crossley and Tim Thomas who narrowly defeated the Elstow A team comprising Tom Nowakowski, Colin Luscombe and John Simms by just 8 points in the Smith Cup final, held on Monday 30th April at Elstow TTC. Phoenix's Tim Thomas managed to secure the win in a close battle against Colin Luscombe in the final match. Further details will be posted in the next few days.

Elstow D won the Plate final by default as Revolution I could, unfortunately, field only two players due to a last minute team player illness.

Results have now been received for all the quarter final matches of the Smith Cup & Plate competitions and can be accessed via the drop down menu on the left. Six of the eight matches were played within an eighteen points winning margin with the closest match between Elstow F v Elstow D where the latter won by just five points. The final match of this encounter was between 11 year old Freya Opperman and the vastly more experienced Kerr Clement. Despite the vast difference in experience Freya only just lost -9, 8, -8, -3 giving their higher ranked team the match all determined on the last game. A very credible achievement to the handicapper, Elstow's Dave Thomas, who knew the two teams very well. Elstow D's Mark White caused the most damage for the higher ranked team and Freya Opperman was the star performer for the F team which included an 8, 10, 10, -3 win against Patrick Lyall and an -7, -4, -0, -5 loss against Mark White.

Results have now been received for all Round 1 matches and can be accessed via the drop down menu on the left. Unfortunately three teams were unable to field teams and so their opponents were automatically put through to the second round of the Cup. The majority of matches that were played went right down to the wire and many of the results were determined in the final game. Congratulations to the winners and good luck to all teams in the coming rounds, be it in the Cup or the Plate competition

A few issues have arisen with emailing results cards some of which were also experienced last season. When emailing the results card could you 1). have a meaningful subject to the email such as "Revolution B v St Neots A 161017 Result" rather than just "Results" 2). please email BOTH the Divisional Administrator and the Fixture Secretary 3). when emailing the Divisional Administrator use the generic email address divN@bedfordttleague.co.uk where N is the division number e.g. 1,2,3,4,5,6. DO NOT use the divisional administrators personal email address. Thank you for your attention to this matter and please inform your other team members. Following these guidelines will ensure a smooth and prompt results publication service.
