There was a lot of excellent table tennis on offer in all the groups.

The Diss premier  players produced the goods on the night winning their group 8-1. There was some really excellent play from all the players and all the games were close. 4 of the 9 games went to 5 sets. There were maximums for both Chris and Stuart. Steve lost one match against Paul Wright Jnr, who also took Chris and Stuart to 5 sets. There were some great games Chris against Carl was a tight match with Chris winning in 4 sets , 11-13,15-13,14-12 and 11-9. All players were somewhat amazed at the speed of hitting from Ryan, both forehands and backhands appeared to be rocket driven.

The Diss First Division found it harder losing 6 - 3 with each Diss Player winning a match each. However 3 of their losing matches were close going to five sets. It was a good display and could have gone either way. Dennis and Alan both beat Darren and Terry beat Mick. Andrew was the most successful player winning all his matches although was taken to five by Terry and Alan.

The Diss Juniors found the opposition to strong and lost their match 9 – 0. James, Nathan and Lewis all put up good displays with James and Nathan taking their matches against Matt to four sets and Lewis taking both his namesake, Lewis Carby and Josh to four close sets. Great Yarmouth juniors were just that bit too strong on the night.

So in spite of excellent displays from all the groups Great Yarmouth go through to the next round winning 16 – 11.

Congratulations to them and good luck in the next round.
