As with most Handicap matches, this was a very intriguing night of Table Tennis. Dennis was first up and matched Jon's attacking game with some good defensive shots, sharing the games at one game each. Alan against Stuart were on next with Stuart unable to overcome the Handicap difference of 15 points. However, David overcame his handicap against Ted to win both games. Dennis versus Stuart was the best match to watch with some great attacking shots from Stuart being returned by Dennis, who had one of his best matches, winning both games. Alan then had a very close match with David, who won the first game. Although in the second game David overcame the 10-point handicap to be level at 11 points each Alan went on to win it 25-23. Ted lost his first game to Jon, but then made a good comeback in the second to the share the games one all.

Overall a very close encounter.
