IBA Lynn Table Tennis League
Week 12 of the Premier League saw leaders Pegg Scaffolding emerge victorious from a top-of-the-table clash against Ziggy’s.

Peter Pegg and Martin Skipper both had good wins over John Blyth in support and Mason/Skipper took the doubles.
In return, Chad Bassett and Martyn Allen both scored a brace of wins over Skipper and Pegg.
Wasps moved into second position after a fine 7-3 win away to Avengers.
Tomasz Simka showed his class for the visitors with a strong maximum.
Dave Attridge and Mike Crowson both chipped in with a couple of wins each in support.
For Avengers, Don Dixon scored a brace and teamed up with Richard Mussett to take the doubles.
Heacham are back up to fourth after a 9-1 win away to Ambit Projects. James Patterson and Aaron Howell did the damage with maximums.
Ambits’ consolation win came from a Rob Rix win over Richie Rayner.
Draw specialists Exiles showed Wisbech Hawks how to share a match.
In-form Alan Nicholls claimed a well-taken maximum for Exiles, who had Jim Defty and Steve Barrett both gaining wins over Graham Sheppard.
For Hawks, Craig Pack and Steve Ely registered a couple of wins each before combining to win the doubles together.
Wasps II closed the gap at the bottom of the table with their first-ever Premier League win.
This was helped by St James only turning up with two players, therefore conceding a 3-0 head start before a ball was even hit.
Mick Forth won both his games and with Paul Reed beating Alan Jones it was enough to see the Wasps II take the match 6-4.
For St James, Chris Gay scored a brace and Jones had a win before the pair joined forces to take the doubles.
In Division One, Paul’s Driving School are now mounting a serious challenge for the title with a 10-0 win over Runcton Holme B.

Mel Jupp, the only player on the night with a maximum, received good support from Steve Bailey, who had a brace of wins, and Graham Warren, who defeated Stuart Frost.
Jupp/Bailey also won the doubles to take the spoils.
Graham Keeley had two good wins and the oldest player in the league Ray Drew had a great win over Graham Warren.
West Lynn Sports and Social Club shared the spoils with Spin Doctors for the second time this season in a 5-5 draw.
Even with a Danny Vertigan maximum for West Lynn there was still no separating the teams.
Andy Castleton picked up a win over Darryl Johnson and Vertigan/Castleton took the doubles.
For the visitors, Roger Chilvers and John Wiggs both had a couple of wins each and Johnson picked up a win over Colney Vertigan.
