Blueskin Sports: Table Tennis and Darts

TABLE TENNIS

BBTT Club competitions

The first Thursday of August saw Patrick Oxley
narrowly lose to Steve Peak 2-1, and then win a
friendly 2-1. Baden Oxley won a friendly 2-0 to a
feisty Terese. Digby Hodgson held off a late charge
by Steve to win 2-1 in what has become the top
of the open divison clash. No-one wanted to play
the dog Q on account of him being barkers.

The second August fixture saw Steve win again
at the expense of Baden. Patrick had a competition win
against Hank Haining. Two non-competition games featured
Hank versus Steve then Digby to notably inprove the
former's competitiveness. The highlight of the evening was
the first doubles match ever played at BBTT Club:
Baden and Patrick Oxley beat Digby and Steve to a
jelly 2-0.

On Thursday 9 August Frank O'Niell realised that
well-practised players are hard to topple. Steve was
merciless beating Frank 2-0. Digby beat a quickly
improving Frank 2-1.

Last Thursday one premier grade and one open grade
match were played. The premier game was played at pace
with long quality rallies. Digby won 2 close games to 0.
The open grade game could have gone either way. Digby
beat Hank 2-0 from 18-20 game point against in the first.

BBTT's 2007 tournament will be in October.

DARTS

Village darts started as singles. Hank Haining won the
most often. Steven Peak was just as often second place.
As more people turned up, doubles was played in order to involve
more players. The winners of doubles on the 9th were
Hank and Digby Hodgson; Wendy White and Steven were second.
The next week Frank O'Niell and Digby were lucky to
just beat Steve and Wendy. This was an upset and there
was an embrassing moment of Hodgson and O'Niell dancing
together.

On the 23rd of August Steve and Wendy finally got up where
they belong with super darting to beat Haining and Hodgson
in the match to decide the best. Steve,m Wendy and Digby
then played singles against each other. All matches were
tight and full of good scores. Digby won twice, Steven
won one for second.

The 2007 Blueskin Bay Darts Tournament will be played after our
World Cup, and will be advertised.
