HALES Gnats took over as leaders of the Beccles and District Table Tennis League (sponsored by Alan Cook Accommodations) last week with a 10-0 win over Framingham Magpies.

However, this was by no means a straightforward victory, with five games going to deuce.

Olly Howes and Gordon Howes won all their matches in straight legs, but there was an amazing game during Gordon's match against Alf Stubbs which he just edged 21-19.

Alan Harper took David Flatt to a fourth leg, but the outstanding match of the evening was a fifth-leg victory for David over Barry Fortune.

Barry won the first two legs, but David won the next three.

Hales New Bees moved up to fourth place after an 8-2 victory over Hales Eagles.

Barney Garrod won all his matches in straight legs. Phil Tregear and Luke Glaysher won two matches each, all of which went to a fourth leg.

Phil narrowly missed out on his third victory of the evening when he lost in five legs to David Constable.
