Week 4 of the Horsham District Primary Schools Table Tennis League Division A brought some more good matches. There’s just no stopping Southwater A. They rattled up another maximum haul of 80 points to ensure they stay way ahead at the top of the tree. Yes they’ve played two matches more than all the other teams but let’s not kid ourselves, nobody’s catching the runaway train represented by the crew of Chloe R, playing with a style that suggests she’s auditioning to be the first female 007, Dan P, Zaib RF and Sam A.

Nearest, but still distant, challengers continue to be Southwater’s second string. This was despite them having their non-scoring friendly match during the night and their upper half having to take on the might of their Southwater A counterparts. Callum C and Finn H in the lower half made up for light pickings elsewhere by knocking Billingshurst’s lower brigade for the full 20 points.

Good to see Billingshurst record their first team score on the door with their upper team gaining a draw against improving Greenway. Luca V was the hero of that match with two wins. Josh N did well on his debut but despite pushing both opponents hard just couldn’t manage to tip the match into a victory. Interestingly they did less well against Greenway Lower for whom Blaise W was just too strong.

Holbrook also got their friendly match out of the way, a bit of a non-event as traffic delayed one of the teams and prevented them contesting three of the matches. They may have regretted the traffic wasn’t bad enough to prevent them getting there at all as Southwater A’s teams set about them in the second round of matches on the night. Zac B went close however to breaking the southern stranglehold, losing out on the deciding point versus Sam A.
