Dumfries TTC vs u3a Kirkton in friendly challenge

Our Over-50s group ran out 3-2 winners in a friendly match against the u3a Kirkton table tennis group on Friday 29 Sept. Five two-player teams from each group took part, with Dumfries TTC lending a player to the u3a after one of their player went down with Covid.  Matches followed our league format, with each player having two singles and a doubles. u3a players normally play to 21, so playing to 11 took a little getting used to!

The final score saw Dumfries with wins in three matches (5-0, 4-1, and 3-2) and u3a taking two matches (3-2 and 3-1). But the main aim was to enjoy some friendly competition in a more formal format, and against different players – though as some u3a players also come to our Over-50s sessions, their styles were familiar. 

The match was hosted at the club, with a break for refreshments halfway through. There was plenty of time for socialising as well as playing games, and talk at the end turned to when we could do it all again!
