Players in festive garments at the Heacham League hard bat fun night.

TABLE TENNIS: A hard bat fun night at Heacham Public Hall finished the first half of the Heacham League season. 

Players wore different types of Christmas clothing but it did not take long for everyone to get to grips with the hard bats. 

During the first half there was no real clear favourite to win the groups but at the interval on table one it was Tom Yarrow and Jeff Race who led, followed by Graham Keeley and Kim Mann. 

On table two, Rob Yarrow and Eileen Needham were in the lead from Mike Nobes and John Marrow.

After the second half, the final saw Rob Yarrow of Hunnys Heroes and his partner, super sub Needham, take on Tom Yarrow of Hunnys Heroes and Race from Vips. 

A great final was played over eight minutes. The first end went to Yarrow and Needham 11-8, but the second to their opponents, also 11-8.

After five minutes the third end was six all but the Yarrow/Race pairing just edged home tot take victory.
