Junior Top 12 Qualification

posted 14 Oct 2019, 09:47 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 14 Oct 2019, 09:50 ]

Ben Foss claimed top spot in the Guernsey qualification stage of the Channel Islands Junior Top 12 tournament on Sunday. The format consists of the 10 top-ranked juniors playing in a round robin to determine who will go through to play Jersey's top six. 
 Having to play nine matches in one session is not easy either physically or mentally and the players all gave a good account of themselves on the day. Foss only dropped one game over his nine matches and that was to the dangerous Ellis Tomlin, who claimed 3rd position, narrowly losing out to Dan Collenette. Tomlin seemed to have Foss on the ropes at 1-0 and 10-8 up before Foss used his experience to come back to win that game 14-12 and eventually seal a 3-1 win.


The surprise results of the day came slightly lower down the order as Corey Brouard and Ben Sharp kept their focus well to finish 4th and 5th respectively, ahead of Matt Casey. Caden Brouard was unlucky to miss out, finishing 7th despite beating Casey, while James Crocker, Jonah Ingrouille and Alderney's Amy Wesley all gave a good account of themselves. Crocker was on especially good form, using his left-handed attacking style to good effect to defeat Caden Brouard and is definitely one to watch in future editions.

Butterfield Banded Tournament 1

First Junior Butterfield Banded Tournament 
 

Round 1 in the series of Junior Butterfield Banded table tennis tournaments got off to a start at the weekend. 42 different junior players took part in the first of four such tournaments this season with 5 bands of 8 or 10 players in their new maroon shirts courtesy of Butterfield, whio recently signed as GTTA Development sponsor. It turned out to be an all bright day at the table tennis centre with some promising performances showing that the current crop of young players has real potential.

In Band 1, the title went to Ellis Tomlin and runner up spot went to Ben Sharp, Tomlin beat Sharp 2-0 (11-6, 11-9) with some long, high speed rallies.

In Band 2 Jayden Tucknott finished the event undefeated dropping only two sets, one each by the fast-improving sisters Shelby and Tia Timms. Runner up was Erin Vaudin who narrowly lost to Jayden 11-9 in the second set.

Band 3 saw another fast-improving young junior from Alderney in 10 year old Sian Craig, who was excellent on the day and come out on top with second place going to Jacques Bideau.

The title in Band 4 went to Tom Syer from Alderney with some narrow and hard-fought wins over the other players in his band. Second place went to newcomer Oskar Cleal, whose confidence got better and better with every game he played and worked hard for his runner up spot.

Band 5 saw the emergence of another new star from Alderney, Heidi Dawber. Winning all her matches and taking the title and runner up spot went to Xavier Ingrouille

Player of the Day is awarded for good sportsmanship on and off the table throughout the tournament and this time it went to Gabriel Jouhning.

The tournament had some exceptional matches on show on all 12 tables during the day and many of the 5 bands matches going to the wire.

Senior Group Tournament

posted 1 Oct 2019, 12:50 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 1 Oct 2019, 12:51 ]

24 players took part in the GTTA’s first KO competition of the season - the Senior Group Singles, which provided good entertainment across the board. Championship honours went to evergreen Phil Ogier, who won the tournament for a record 11th time (having first won it in 1996). He took on Lawrence Stacey in a superbly fought final, which provided spectators a feast of spectacular rallies.

Stacey’s route to the final saw him win Group A in the round robin. In the first round of the knockout stages, he took a bye - before going on to defeat Ryan Richard 3 straight in the quarter final.
Paul Hainsworth was to provide somewhat sterner opposition to Stacey in their semi-final match. Unfortunately, Hainsworth didn’t quite have the fire-power or the flair to overcome Stacey, succumbing to the latter 11-9, 11-8, 11-8.

Stacey’s coup de grace in the last point of the last set had onlookers drooling. An instinctive, trade-mark, behind-the back return completely wrong-footed Hainsworth, who had no choice but to gracefully concede defeat.

Ogier’s route to the final saw him overcome a 1-0 deficit to Dan Collenette before beating him 3-1 in their quarter final match. Collenette had done well previously in the the first round of the KO when he overcome a 2-0 deficit to eventually beat Andy Gill 3-2.

Ogier’s opponent in the semi-final was the talented Ben Foss. Foss beat Steve Ozanne three straight in the quarter final. The semi-final was a much taller order for Foss who on this occasion didn’t have the patience or the endurance to overcome Ogier’s fantastic shot retrieval and play-making.

Ogier blocks well from both sides of the table. His ability to keep the ball on the table, using deceptively variable spin, close-up, or at at distance, continually forces errors from frustrated opponents, wearing them down. Despite the wonderful quality of Foss’s shots, Ogier’s greater patience and focus saw him eventually beat the younger player in five games: 11-8, 5-11, 12-10, 6-11, 11-3.

Going in to face Stacey - Ogier - older by two decades, had played more games and his fitness was going to be sorely tested. Asked what his mindset was for the final, Ogier said: ‘to keep breathing.’

Ogier lost the first game to Stacey by 12-10, but took the second, apparently easily by 11-4 before losing the third 11-7. All the wins were coming from one end of the table and this proved to be the case in the fourth with Ogier 1-2 down, now drawing level, winning the game 11-6.

In the fifth and final game, Ogier took a one point lead to swap ends at 5-4, going on to win 11-7.

The game had some spectacular away from the table rallies with Stacey working to attack Ogier’s back hand and forehand sides, forcing him wide, to create space for an array of winning shots which, when they came off, were spectacular. But Ogier’s patience and strategy held, taking clean winners when he could - including a couple of masterful attacking blocks - but more often forcing his opponent into making errors.

Picking the moment to kill the ball is far harder when you’re playing well away from the table - and as Lawrence found out on this occasion, especially someone like Ogier - who retrieves well most of the time knows because he knows exactly where the ball is going to go.

The final game saw a crescendo of rallies with both players going for broke but Ogier edged the mental battle and he ran out the deserved winner. 

Veterans 6 Nations 2019

posted 20 Sep 2019, 13:39 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 20 Sep 2019, 13:39 ]




Some of Guernsey’s leading veteran table tennis players competed well in the 2019 Home Countries Veterans Table Tennis Tournament held in Perth, Scotland last weekend. The event contained some of the best veterans from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Jersey and the Isle of Man. Guernsey were represented in teams across most of the available age groups including Over 40’s and 50’s Men, Over 50’s Ladies and Over 60’s and Over 70’s Mixed events.

The outcome for the Sarnian contingent were 2 well deserved medals.

The strong ladies outfit of Dawn Morgan and Kay Chivers performed best in the team event and took a superb bronze medal from their event and were unlucky not to edge England to silver, having beaten England 1, Wales and Scotland, whilst narrowly losing out to England 2 and Ireland.

During the event Morgan earned some excellent victories including wins over the 3 of the top 4 Over 50’s ladies in England in the form of no 1, Sue Collier, no 2, Michelle Reeves and no 4, Jane Vickers. Chivers also came close against these strong players, narrowly losing deuce in the fifth three times, whilst winning other key matches along the way. 

In the over 40’s men, Tim Le Page played a cameo role in the extremely tough division, whilst in the over 50’s men, Craig Dunning made a good debut taking games off several players and Andy Gill won three matches which included victories over the Irish no 3 and the Scottish no 3, who is ranked 25 in Scotland.

In the over 60s, the four-person mixed team of Lionel Jones, Peter Vivian, Sue Ferbrache and Rob Vile faced tough opposition, but won notable rubbers against Scotland and the Isle of Man, despite going down 5-2 in both.


In the over 70s, Keith Opie, Ken Falla and Maurice James had some close fought matches, narrowly losing to Scotland, Scotland 2 and Ireland, 3-2 in each but beating Wales 4-1 and more importantly seeing off Jersey 3-2, with Ken Falla the star in the match, winning his 2 singles matches against JTTA president Paul Routier and Peter Hinds.

In the individual events, Kay Chivers narrowly lost in the over 60s singles to Jersey’s Kay Lefebvre 11-9 in the fifth, with the latter Caesarean teaming up with Sue Ferbrache to win silver in the individual doubles competition.

St Pauls Handicap

posted 17 Sep 2019, 13:20 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 8 Oct 2019, 15:15 ]

Joseph Bourgaize got the new table tennis season started yesterday by claiming the first available trophy - the St Pauls Handicap Singles. In a match that finished well after 11pm, he came from a game down to beat Ben Foote 2-1 in the final.

The 'St Pauls' is a popular event that attracts table tennis players of all ages and abilities from across the GTTA leagues although by a quirk of the handicapping system, the trophy has been won by a 1st Division player every year since 2008, when 4th Division Christine Brassell claimed the title.

Bourgaize was playing his last matches before returning to study at Southampton University and struggled a little early on, losing his first match in Group B to Craig Dunning, conceding only a 1 point start to the dangerous Division 2 player.  However he improved as the evening progressed, with subsequent wins over Derek Cave and Mick Ingrouille to progress tot e knock outs. From there he had a reasonably serene passage to the semi-finals where he came across the in-form Ravenscroft Panthers stalwart Robin Vile. For much of the match, Vile managed to frustrate his younger opponent and kept the ball short and low over the net to prevent Bourgaize from playing his signature attacking loops. At deuce in the final game, Bourgaize held his nerve well to open up with a top-spin attack and win 22-20, 15-21, 23-21

In the other half of the draw, Foote was having some closer encounters, being pushed hard in the group stage by the fast-improving fourth Division regular Oscar Pearson, winning deuce in the final end, and then in the first round by the veteran Chas Elliott.  After a 2-0 win against Dunning, the semi-final was played against 2019 Island Champion Lawrence Stacey and featured some excellent attacking rallies and blocks from both players, with Foote eventually coming through 21-23, 21-12, 21-19.

Foote started with an 8-point advantage in the final and was able to block and counter-hit well in taking in the first game. Bourgaize changed his tactics to good effect and introduced a greater variety of shots along with some good serving and ensured a new name on the trophy to start the season.  The Doric Insurance Senior Leagues commence this week, with the next tournament being the Senior Group trophy on Monday 30th September.

British League Round 1

Ravenscroft Senior British National League Report Weekend 1 2019/20 Season

  
The Ravenscroft backed Guernsey Table Tennis sides have returned from their opening round of fixtures in the Senior British League with mixed results.

Both sides were in action at the Halton Table Tennis club in Widnes and it was the leading Island side that fared the best.

Competing in the National A-1 Division, the team of Lawrence Stacey, Joshua Stacey, Ben Foss and Alex Robinson managed to win 2 of their matches over the weekend and were only narrowly edged out by the finest margin in the other 2.

The first fixture was against Cardiff City TTC I and the Sarnian side started well, securing a tight 5-4 victory. Alex Robinson playing from the number 4 spot proved decisive in this fixture as he won both of his matches over Welsh Cadet Evan O’Connor and Welsh Junior Girl Jamie-Lee Harley with relative ease. Josh Stacey also defeated O’Connor in 4 sets, whilst Foss saw off Harley in straight sets. The 5th and decisive win was obtained by Lawrence in the match opener. It was the only rubber in the match to go the full 5 sets and Stacey clinched the deciding end of his clash against Rhys Hetherton 11-7. Welsh star Dean Cundy was a bridge too far and the player equivalently ranked in the top 40 in England defeated both Stacey twins as well as winning the doubles rubber alongside Hetherton against Robinson and Foss.

The afternoon fixture against Fusion II ended in opposite fashion as a tight 5-4 loss was incurred. Despite the defeat, there were encouraging signs for Foss who ended his day on a high. He started by overturning a 2-1 deficit to defeat Robert Pelc 11-7 in the deciding end and followed up with a 4 set win over top 100 ranked player Joshua Dye. Lawrence also earned himself a win against Dye in 5 sets, whilst twin Joshua overcame Jamal Dennison in 4 sets. Like with Cardiff, it was Fusion’s top player who did the damage. England number 25 James Smith is one of the highest ranked players in the Division and he earned wins over both Stacey twins.

The Sunday started positively with a 6-3 win over Barrow I. Lawrence was the man of the match following a straight set win over England Number 99 Jonathan Crawford and a 4 set win over Barrow number 1 Richard Lightowler. Joshua was edged out in 5 sets by Lightowler, but overcame England number 128 Paul Cicchelli in 5 sets. Foss and Robinson each defeated Barrow number 4 Peter Morgan to make sure of the win. The result was made better following Lawrence and Foss’s 4 set doubles win over Crawford and Cicchelli.

The final encounter of the weekend resulted in another narrow 5-4 defeat, this time at the hands of Swerve TTC I. Lawrence earned a solid 5 set win over England number 110 Kieran Wardell to open the match, whilst Foss and Robinson each overcame Andy Benjamin. The doubles rubber was won again by the Guernsey combination of Lawrence and Foss over Wardell and Callum Mcrae, however the 5th and final rubber proved elusive. The match swung on the outcome of 2 other 5 set encounters and unfortunately it was the Swerve side who edged both. Lawrence was on the wrong end of the first match against Swerve number 1 Sam Kwan 11-8, but there was further despair for Joshua who lost 14-12 in the decisive 5th end of his encounter against Mcrae.

Ravenscroft II had a tougher opening weekend of action in National C1 and only managed to win 1 of their 4 matches.

The first match of the weekend was harsh on the local side consisting of Jamie Ferbrache, Ryan Bichard, Matthew Casey and Ryan Gilson as the 5-4 loss to Colin Deaton I hinged on the outcome of the final match between Gilson and David Molyneux, which ended in a 5 set victory for the opposition. The afternoon saw a 7-2 defeat at the hands of venue hosts Halton TTC III. 

Despite the 8-1 defeat to a strong St Neots I side on the final day of action, a well deserve 6-3 win was obtained against Colin Deaton II. Casey capped off a solid weekend with 2 wins, whilst each of Bichard, Ferbrache and Gilson all managed to win 1 of their matches. The Guernsey side also came out on top in the doubles match.



British League Round 1 Preview

Ravenscroft Senior British National League Preview 2019/20 Season
  
The local table tennis season does not officially kick-off until Wednesday 25th September for the Island’s leading players, where the first fixtures from the top flight of the Doric Insurance sponsored leagues will take place. Despite this fact, competitive action commences this weekend when the opening round of fixtures in the Senior British National League will be taking place.

With the backing of Ravenscroft, the Island’s top players have flourished in this competition and the first team compete in the National A1 Division this season. Following the overhaul in structure a few seasons ago into a pyramid system, National A is the third highest behind only the Premier and Championship Divisions, the latter in which the Sarnian team were narrowly relegated from last season. The high standard of competition gives great opportunity for the Guernsey players to test themselves against some high quality players in Britain. Meanwhile the second team is competing in National C1.

For the first time in 3 seasons both teams will be competing in the same venue, the Halton Table Tennis Centre located in Widnes.
The Island’s leading side is missing the best player in the Channel Islands, Garry Dodd, as the UK based Sarnian is taking the opportunity to compete in the higher Championship Division for Nottingham Sycamore I. Despite the absence of Dodd, the majority of the squad is formed from the remaining 3 players from the male quartet that were part of the team that won Island Games Gold in Gibraltar earlier this summer. This is headed up by current Island Men’s Singles champion Lawrence Stacey and also contains twin Josh Stacey and Ben Foss. The final spot is occupied by the Gibraltar Island Games coach Alex Robinson, who himself is a leading Island player that has also been part of Island Games gold medal winning teams in the past.

Ravenscroft I will be competing against 7 other teams in National A1 and it’s impossible to gauge the strength of the other teams prior to the commencement of the season due to the unknown registrations that each club has made. One such team that is in their Division however are venue hosts Halton I, who will likely be strong contenders.

Ravenscroft II are a much changed side this campaign and are led by Ryan Bichard, who is joined by Matthew Casey, Jamie Ferbrache and Ryan Gilson. The youthful side have all competed in the local 1st Division and British League previously and will be keen to impress and earn some strong results.

The side will also be competing against 7 other teams in their Division and it’s also difficult to know the strengths of each team. One familiar team is Isle of Man however and the Guernsey side are used to competing against them in various different competitions, including British League, in the past.

Summer League 2019

posted 27 Aug 2019, 15:13 by Guernsey Table Tennis Association   [ updated 27 Aug 2019, 15:20 ]

The final round of Summer League was played last week, congratulations to Lawrence Stacey on claiming the overall title.  Also thanks to Kay Chivers and Keith Opie for running another successful league

League Table


Week 12 Report

Hard to believe that summer league is now over for 2019.  We had another very good turnout especially with it being the North Show.

Keith and myself have enjoyed running the summer league because we know how much you have all enjoyed it, therefore we are looking forward to seeing you all again next year.  We would like to thank Ben and Monty for putting it on the website something we just weren’t born to do.  Also to Len Bretel who isn’t well enough to play table tennis anymore but prepared all the summer league books for us, thanks Len very much appreciated.

Well it was a very close call in the end but finally Lawrence came out on top beating his brother Josh 86 points to 83.  Congratulations Lawrence and for anyone interested we will be doing the presentation on Monday September 16th before the St Pauls handicap tournament begins.

On table 2 we had Ben Foss who won all of his games but much improved this summer Ryan Gilson came 2nd with 7 points losing to Ben over 4 sets.

On table 3 Joseph Bourgaize played very well winning all of his games, keep practicing Joe for when you come back to the Island permanently.   Chas Elliott came second with 7 points and has been pretty consistent during the summer league.

On table 4 Mark Fallaize returned to us after being away for 1 year and still managed to win all of his games with Steve Ozanne coming in second place.

On table 5 Steve Martin had a good evening winning all of his games.  Unfortunately for Oscar Pearson who was looming in 3rd place didn’t have such a good night and only won 1 game.  Never mind Oscar everything to go for next year.

Table 6 was very close with Terry Trustum coming first with 8 points but Ian Fitchet 2nd with 7 points even though he had beaten Terry 3-2, it’s a funny game.

On table 7 Dave Finn had a comfortable evening.  Probably the most exciting game was between Brian Le Cras and Shane Cotter.  Brian won the first 2 games but then Shane won the 3rd game 19-21 and then went on to win the next two and finished up in second place.

On table 8 going out with a bang Rob Vile finished with 9 points with a close Mick Ingrouille on 8 points.  Rob managed to beat Mick 14-12 in the 5th game.

Finally on table 9 Shelby Timms finished first with 9 points with her sister Tia close behind with 8 points.


Week 12 winning tables are:

Table 1 Lawrence Stacey. 2 Ben Foss. 3 Joseph Bourgaize. 4 Mark Fallaize. 5 Steve Martin. 6 Terry Trustum . 7 Dave Finn. 8 Rob Vile. 9 Shelby Timms.

 

Until next year.  Á la perchoine

Never give up!!
