June 2013 – Breamore Table Tennis Club

Who would have dared to think it remotely possible ……… 2013 – the year when the unspeakable, unbelievable, unthinkable occurred ; Breamore’s formidable and unassailable Cricket Team have a genuine contender, a real rival for space in the silverware cabinet complacently residing in The Bat & Ball public house.Breamore ‘A’ comprising of Terry Young (captain), Gill Thompson and Bob Erskine came runners up in The Salisbury & District Table Tennis League Division 2 and will, as a result, receive personal medals and hopefully a team trophy along with promotion to Division 1.

Breamore ‘B’ comprising of Paul Toynton (captain), Graham Timms and Nick Dibben completed a highly successful season in Division 2 climaxing to an extraordinary 2nd win in a row of the much coveted all divisions included Salibury & District Handicap Cup.

And finally, if that wasn’t enough silverware winging its way southwards towards this ping-pong epicentre, our other Breamore ‘A’ Team playing in the highly competitive Boumemouth & District League ( consisting of 6 Divisions fielding both national and international players ) were outright Division 4 Title Champions and now find themselves promoted to Division 3 next season. This was a particularly impressive achievement as they reached the top of the league position very early on in the season and very quickly became the team all of the Bournemouth teams wished very much to displace. Captained by Pete Turner : Nick Dibben, Ken Scott and Roger Fairhead all had a magnificent season made even more notable by Roger’s 100 % unbeaten record for three successive years.

Don’t worry Percy no intentions of approaching Jason with proposal of a change in hanging pub sign – substituting that long, club-like willowy implement with bone shattering cannonball for something altogether far more curvaceous and benign …….yet!

Everyone welcome ( beginners especially- free coaching available ) on Monday evenings at Hulse Hall commencing at 7.00pm. Low cost sport with fun along the way. Please call me on 01725 513454 for further information. Dennis White
