Kempsey Macleay Table Tennis Club held its 2021 championships over the last two weeks and Adi Vinaikosol has proved again to be the best by a country mile.
Adi not only took out the A grade singles title but teamed with Mark Bradney to conquer all in the doubles.
Adi was all powerful and only took three games in every one of his 'best of five' matches to dispose of his opposition.
Steve Tarbox as runner up might have been expected to cause him some trouble but really could not get close. Congratulations Adi!
It has come to be expected that Adi will triumph but there was a surprise when our elder statesman, John Mundy, played out of his skin to take out the B grade title.
It is a testament to his persistence that he was able to keep getting the ball back and put the pressure squarely on each opponent.
Each of his matches went to five games so he got his money's worth out of the night as well.
Colin Catlin, runner up to John, was up two games to zero in their match-up but John's fightback was inspirational and he prevailed by three games to two.
It was like watching Lleyton Hewitt!
The doubles teams are determined by drawing names from a hat to partner a B Grade player with an A grader, so it can lead to some interesting teams. Adi and Mark Bradney proved formidable and never lost a match on their way to taking the title.
Fred Every and Barbara Morley were also 'in form' but lost to Adi and Mark relegating them to the runner up title.
Play will continue on Wednesday evenings till mid-December but in a less competitive atmosphere and all are welcome to join in no matter what level you play at.
