This past week in the Guildford Table Tennis League, Ash improved their chances of survival in the Premier with a 7-3 win over Merrow D who seem doomed to relegation.

Eliot Tilley led the charge with a full house of singles and doubles, skipper Paul Myers provided the back-up. The Aldershot side have matches in hand over rivals at the foot and look likely to still see ‘top tier ping’ next season. 

Merrow’s Micky Lang.

Division One, and Merrow E look assured of the title courtesy of an 8-2 victory over nearest challengers Godalming E. John Grant, Mirko Danso and Shaun Newbold did the business! A glance at the table shows three teams in contention for runners up spot and Premier glory with one week to go. At the bottom, with several games outstanding, theoretically perm any two from five to go down.

In Divisions Two and Three its almost time to break open the champagne for Merrow F and Bramley E who have led their respective packs since day one. In Two there are three teams vying for promotion in the second spot race. The Bramley club are having rather mixed fortunes this year as two more of their teams, C and D, face the drop. 

Godalming’s Charley Penny.

In Three, Ash B have given their all in the battle for supremacy and the title with James Wyncoll topping the individual averages. In the lower depths Merrow G will go down and the final match between Godalming L and Woking B will probably decide who follows them.  

In the Fourth Division there is much the same story for Merrow H who are nearly there, with three teams, Abinger, Bramley and College Hill battling it out for the other promotion spot.
