2024 Winter Interclub Final

A Grade
Gore Town & Country took out the final of A Grade in the Table Tennis Southland Winter Interclub for a third successive year.  They beat Eagles 2 by 3 matches to 2 in the final.  Star player Willie Brocks went through the season unbeaten winning all 14 games.  He was ably supported by Karoly Erderli and Mike Morus who played a good part in their title win.  Andrew Fleming was second in the averages winning 68.4% of his games with Gemma Buzzard from Eagles 1 coming in at third place with 64.3%.

B Grade
The vastly improving Eagles 4 team of Megan Parkinson and Yuliya Shalina took out the B Grade title.  They beat the second placed IWMC 2 team on the night by 3 matches to 2.  Megan was also unbeaten winning 20 matches over the season to top the B Grade averages. She was followed by Keith Pyne and Gordon McMillan in second equal place on 78.6%.
