Grippers become champions winter table tennis 2020 | Lithgow Mercury




sports, local sports,

The annus horribilis of the Lithgow Table Tennis Association has ended on a bright note, with the result of a hard-fought Grand Final of the summer competition that goes to the last rubber. The year started with the sad death of top player Michael Wood in mid-January after a short illness. The six-team winter competition was then halted in mid-March due to COVID-19 restrictions. The association started their year in August with the current competition, but just two rounds later, Denis Ford had to withdraw due to ill health. Then came the most devastating blow of all, when beloved member Roy Barlow was killed in a canyoning accident in early September just before lap four.

Minor Premiers Grippers, looking to avenge their Major Semi loss two weeks earlier, looked good against Charolais when they came out 2-0, 5-2 and 7-3. Charolais clawed back in slowly and was 9-8 in a game late in the game. Grippers doubled their advantage to two games at 11-9, but Charolais took the final singles 2-0 to see the game locked, 11-apiece, in doubles. Grippers won a reversed first doubles 2-1, leaving Charolais tasked with winning the second 2-0 for an outright win, or 2-1 to force a sudden death third doubles. Charolais gave himself every chance by pocking the first game 11-8, but Grippers responded with a nail-biting 11-9 victory in the second. Grippers had just enough in the tank to win the third game, 11-7, and claim the title, 15-13. Mick Wagner was the shining light for Grippers 6-2, while Lou Kappos (3-5) and Linda Kappos (2-4) both gave solid support.
