TABLE TENNIS: There were some close matches in the IBA Protect King’s Lynn League.

In the Premier League, last season’s top two of Top Spynn and Ziggys battled it out with the runners-up taking the spoils 6-4.

Chuck Hewitt, Alan Nicholls and Steve Barrett won two games each for Ziggys with Ross Brown 2 and Karl Brown replying for Top Spynn.

It was the same scoreline for Wisbech Wizards against St James as Alan Ashberry and Grant Brightey proved too hot to handle with maximums.

The only match of the week to be drawn was between Pegg Scaffolding and top-of-the-table Avengers.

Keith Phillips was in fine form to win all of his games for Avengers with Don Dixon and Richard Mussett chipping in with one win apiece.

Dale Parnell won twice for Pegg with Martin Skipper and Peter Pegg winning a game each. Parnell and Skipper took the doubles.

James Patterson was in fine form for Heacham but the hosts went down 6-4 to Wasps.

Patterson gained a maximum and Aaron Howell had a good win over Mike Crowson but it was the away team who walked away winners with Artiom Vetrov and Steve Mason winning two games each and pairing up for the doubles, Crowson beat David Wooley to seal victory.

Newly-promoted Ambits and Heacham A were in competition and it was Heacham who prevailed, 7-3.

Steve Ely secured his first maximum of the season with good support from team-mates Mick Ruffles and Phil Dorrington, who both won two. In reply, Graham Rogerson and Rob Rix won one apiece and Rix teamed up with Lewis Baldock to win the doubles.

The biggest win of the week saw Wasps 2 beat Runcton Holme 9-1. Runcton fielded only two players and were always trying to make up the 3-0 start they conceded.

Mick Forth, Paul Reed and Igors Scekalevs all went home unbeaten with Runcton’s point coming from Dave Wearing and Graham Warren in the doubles.

Paul’s Driving School put up a fine team performance to see off Swaffham Terriers 8-2.

Steve Hunt and Paul Barrett had maximums and paired up to take the doubles. Trevor Mason also helped himself to a fine win.

Spin Doctors entertained a youthful Blades team and Peter McDonagh was the man in form, winning all his games for the home team. Gary Wiggs also won two, only failing to beat the ever-improving Jack Mason.

Roger Chilvers beat Lewis Watson with Wiggs and McDonagh pairing up to take the doubles and the match 7-3. In reply, Mason had two solid wins and Alex Bragg beat Chilvers.

Greenfingers lost 6-4 at home to Wisbech Hawks with two wins each for Gordon Penney and Mike Cooper.

The battle of the Runcton Holme teams saw honours even with a 5-5 draw.

Danny Vertigan kept his 100 per cent record intact with another maximum for the A team. John Ganley backed him up with a win and the home pair also took the doubles.

In reply Clive Sandle and David Lane had two wins each and Carol Parker had a win over the young Colney Vertigan.
