THE Gainsborough and District Table Tennis Summer League season came to a close last week with the championship finals and presentations.

Trevor Howdle, who returned to the game at the start of this season, won the consolation singles and the handicap, defeating Josh Croft in both finals.

Trevor then joined Steve Mason in the doubles final only to be defeated by Josh and his partner Dave Mason.

In the individual singles the top four seeds were in action.

The first semi-final saw Mark Ayris beat Dave Mason, and the second semi-final saw Gary Adlington play his usual skilful game to beat John Mackey.

The final was won by Gary.

The league champions are team Echo (Dave Mason, Brian Reed and Josh Croft).

Trophies were presented by league treasurer/record secretary Dave Brumpton.

Dave has not played this season because of a shoulder injury but has carried on working for the league.

Thanks were Dave, Steve Mason (league secretary) and Gary and Karen of the Ropery Road Liberal Club for the use of their premises.
