Division One leaders Penmaen A picked up where they finished last year in the Boston and District Table Tennis League.

They demolished Lodgers B 10-0, with Brian Hill, Brett Heppenstall and Derek Wood too strong for their opponents.

Rob Smith was the man of the match when Graves Park A beat Penmaen B 6-4.

He won his three to put the Park on track for their first victory of 2013, but it wasn’t all plain sailing, Neil Snaith taking one end and Roger Hooten forcing his game to a deciding fifth leg.

Neil endured two hard-fought three-enders with Phil Brooks and Nick Langley, each time winning the final end 11-9, while Scott Sykes beat the same two players in straight sets.

Roger had nothing to show for his efforts, going down in another tight five set battle with Nick Langley.

Scott and Neil won the first end in the doubles against Rob and Phil, but were unable to sustain their progress.

Stickney earned a 9-1 victory over Graves Park D, who badly need points to avoid slumping to the bottom of the table.

In the upset of the evening, Graham Walters beat Gavin Herberts, but Paul Hartnett and Vince Lozynsky won their three each to secure victory.
