It was a very good first round for Division Two teams in the Mansfield and District Table Tennis League with six of the eight teams qualifying for the quarter finals of The Shippam Shield.
The Shippam Shield is a handicap cup where three players from each team play each other in two games 21up and each point is added up from all 18 games.
Then a handicap is applied as prepared by the Tournament Secretary to get the final result.
Ravenshead Angels beat Boothys by 24pts, Boothys Ravens beating Jacksdale A by 13pts, but no match was closer than the match between Zygabyte A & Zygabyte Old Bats with Zygabyte A winning by just one point.
In the only First Division clash last year’s winner Zygabyte B lost to Ravenshead Riots by 55pts.
Ravenshead Angels bt Boothys 364-340, New Cross Snipers bt Jacksdale B 444-382, Boothys Ravens bt Jacksdale A 392-379, Ravenshead Rebels bt Ravenshead Rascals – Walkover, Hucknall 50+ bt Jacksdale D 335-307, Ravenshead Riots bt Zygabyte B 368-313, Zygabyte A bt Zygabyte Old Bats 378-377, Ravenshead Rhino bt Jacksdale C 433-312.
