Our club participates in the following activities:
There are currently no events scheduled for this club.
Adders are still flying high again this week as they win comfortably by 8-2 against Redlands roosters. The star of this match was new signing Terry Emmerson who completed a hat trick of wins and partnered Andy to a doubles win. Andy and Mike both won 2 each but unfortunately Andy lost the household battle as he lost to young Tom McIntosh. Andy is looking for revenge later in the year.
Eagles got their claws clipped this week as they lost heavily to Stanley Street B by 9-1. The only winner was John Hallgarth who defeated Matt Williams. Eagles are having mixed fortunes at present and hope to win a couple in a row.
The Falcons came close to their first of the season but unfortunately lost 6-4 to Stanley street Cypriots. Jak Eden won his first game of the season and was unlucky not to beat Tom Parker. The other winners were 2 for Nathan and one for Regan. Hopefully that first win is not far away.
This week there have been some positive results by teams and by individuals this week.. Let's start with Div 1 where the Adders were up against MBE. Usually in past years this has always ended in defeat for the adders but not this time. After mixed fortunes for Andy in the previous matches he starred this week after notching up 3 wins against Mark STanfield, Mick Bell and Dave Marsh. Had was ably supported by Mike who beat Mick and Dave. Whilst Matt also defeated Dave which enabled the Adders to 6-4 and move up to 2nd in div 1 which is unheard for this team. Can they keep it up?
In Div 2 the Eagles where up against Global Marble B and after going 2-0 down the team of Keith, Alex and John turned the match on its head with a 7-3 win.. The star this week was Keith who won all his 3 matches and had a great win over Rob Vaughan.
Now we move onto Div3 where the Falcons were up against Stanley Street Rascals. Even though the Falcons lost 9-1 it must noted than Jordan Potter won his first ever league match in the Worksop league. Well done Jordan, keep it up and more wins will follow. Additionally Scott Lee was a
So unlucky to gain his first as well as he narrowly went down 3-2 in one of his matches.
The only other fixture this week was the Dragons who also lost 9-1 to Redlands Rookies. This time it was Justin who saved the dragons from a whitewash as he picked up the win against Caius Tweed.
The Cougars and Dragons met for the first derby match of the year. In the Cougars corner was Dave Lee, Luke Barraclough and Connor Bettley. The Dragons featured capt Justin Flear, Lee Banton and Jack Lennon. This was a closely fought match played in good spirits by all players. Star of the match was Luke who won all 3 of his matches and was supported well by old man Dave who won 2. For the dragons it was Justin who came away with 2 with Lee and Jack getting one each against the unlucky Connor. The score was 5-4 to the Cougars with the doubles to go. The cougars bought in the talisman Dave Rix for the doubles and this proved decisive as they went to take the doubles in 5 close sets and take the match 6-4.
The Eagles this week were overrun by Redlands Joggers as they suffered a 7-3 defeat. Alex and John both won one each and paired themselves together to gain the doubles. This division is wide open and the Eagles will be hoping for their next win comes in their next match
Ryton park Adders had there first win of the season, over newly promoted Stanley street A. It was an all round good team performance by all 3 players as Matt Lemon led the way by winning 2 along with Mike, Andy had another nightmare night and added a solo win, the all important doubles was won by Mike and Andy. A 6-4 win! The eagles also won 6-4 over newly promoted redlands X youth with 3 from 3 for both Alex and John.
Our new team the Falcons, played the online elks and were hopeful of a good night. Two wins each for the Langley brothers, Nathan and Regan, young Scott Lee took his first end from Sarah Thompson but lost out 3-1, good effort from all the boys well done.
Ryton Park Cougars continue with the losing streak! losing there first three matches. This time 9-1 to newly formed Stanlet street C. Dave Lee and Luke Barraclough saved the cougars from a whitewash, winning the doubles in 5 sets!
After a disappointing start for our teams, we finally have a win.
The eagles won 6-4 against Manton Tigers.
Two singles wins each for Alex, Keith and John.
Well done guys.
Let's hope this is the start of a winning streak for the club.
Ryton Park Falcons started their campaign against DTH Redlands Rookies who are one of the favourites for the 3rd Division title. Jordan Potter made his debut in the Worksop League and Regan Langley and Jak Eden made their debut for Ryton Park. The lads battled hard throughout the match and never let their heads go down even though they were up against it and eventually lost 10-0.
The Falcons second match was against DTH Redlands Tarr Babies another team who will be going for the title. This time it was the turn of Scott Lee to make his debut in the Worksop League and he was joined by Jak and Jordan. Again this was a tough ask as the lads went down 10-0. The first fixtures could not be any harder, easier fixtures to come lads.
Ryton Park Eagles started their campaign against Manton Sports and firstly it was really appreciated that Nathan Langley who was making his debut for Ryton Park agreed to play up in division 2. He was joined by new captain Alex Olliffe and Keith Swift. This was a close affair as the Eagles narrowly lost 6-4. Two wins from Keith, one from Alex and the doubles was not quite enough.
Ryton Park Cougars started against Stanley Street Rascals. Making his debut was Luke Barraclough who made a great start and won his first game of the season in his first match. Well done Luke. He was joined by the two Daves, Dave Lee won two and Dave Rix won one. They needed to win the doubles to get a draw and making his debut in the doubles was Connor Bettley. Unfortunately on this occasion the Cougars could not get the all important doubles and lost the match 6-4.
Cougars second match was against Redlands Cypriots and this time Connor Bettley played the singles with the two Dave's. Again the cougars were defeated by a 7-3 scoreline and this time it was Dave Rix who won 2 and Dave Lee with one win.
Now we moved to the Adders team in Division 1 they started their campaign against the current title holders Redlands Fluffy Toys. Thanks go to Alex Olliffe for playing up in division 1 as the team struggled for players with Brian breaking his wrist and Mike away in London. Similar to the Falcons this was a difficult start for Andy Lee and Matt Lemon who joined Alex in this match. It was a shabby start by Andy who needs more practice in match play as he went down easily in his first game and didnít really put up much of a fight. After that start all 3 players picked up their form and performed admirably in their 9-1 defeat. The one win came via Andy Lee who defeated Steve Fox by 3-1. Matt was unfortunate not to beat the same player as he went down 3-2.
Ryton Park Dragons started their campaign against Stanley Street Cypriots and lost by a 9-1 scoreline. Making his debut for this game was Jack Lennon he was supported by Lee and Luke Banton. It was Lee who gained the solitary win to get his campaign up and running.
The Dragons second game was against Stanley Street C and this time Justin joined the Banton brothers in this fixture. Again it was a 9-1 defeat but this time it was Justin Flear who won the game the saved them from a whitewash.

Home nights for Adders. eagles and Falcons is Tuesday,

The club was well represented at this years championships along with new faces who are joining our club next season.
The singles were first and the biggest shock of the night was when OLD MAN DAVE knocked reigning champ Andy Lee out of the group stages. Dave must have had 3 shredded wheat or was it the new trendy trainer socks that put a spring in his step.
Just to note, there was a lot of banter about the handicaps and next season Gary Scott agreed to do a better job so watch out everyone.
After some close games and laughter along the way the semi finals were between Fireman Lemon and funny man Justin and Hit as hard as you can Alex and Not enough handicap Gary.
After 2 close games both Matt and Gary reached the final in what was a surprise since Gary didn't have enough handicap. The final was a battle of the young and old (sorry Gary) and the winner for his first title was Matt Lemon. Well done Matt.
In the doubles it was a knockout competition and first up was Andy and Jordan against Keith and Lee. After a poor start Andy and Jordan managed to squeeze through to the semi where they met Dave Rix and Justin Flear. andy and Jordan closed the handicap deficit pretty quickly and never looked back and won comfortably. In the other half of the draw the semi final featured Matt and new boy Jak Eden against that old stager Dave and Alex. Dave and Alex won comfortably and were hot favourites to win the final against Andy and Jordan.
Dave and Alex started well and built up a lead of 6 points and as much as Andy and Jordan tried they could not get any closer than the 6 points. Well done Dave and Alex for taking this years title.
What can I say about our 2 teams except they are battling each other for the relegation spot. It is crunch week with the teams playing each other. Watch this space for the outcome.
They have struggled all year with not having a team since Carl the dancer Stones tried to strut his stuff while pissed, damaging his knee. Meanwhile his 2 team mates have been plodding on with the help of our 3rd div players. I wish to thank everyone for their help and patience. The Eagles sit currently in mid table and safe from relegation.
Our 2 teams have mixed fortunes with the Cougars sitting comfortably in 3rd place and are battling for the runners up spot. They have still a lot to play for.
The Dragons currently sit second bottom of the league and have had another difficult season but Lee has made further progress with more wins this season than last year and we still have half a season to go.
The Bees started the season with a 9-1 loss to Redlands Zygabites. Joe Else saved the teams blushes with the consolation win. It's going to be long hard season for the Bees.
The new season starts this coming week and wish everyone luck with their first match. Will the Adders and Bees again avoid relegation. The Eagles have every chance of having a good season and should be fighting for the div 2 title. Will the Cougars be fighting for the div 3 title and fingers crossed that the Dragons earn a few points.
Can all players please ensure they register with Etta and renew their player licence ASAP. If you do not have a licence soon you will not be allowed to play in league matches.
Club nights are on every Tuesday starting from the 8th May. All are welcome please invite any friends who wish to come along to a friendly night of Table Tennis. For next season we will be looking for a couple of new players specifically for the 3rd division so please lets all help by getting new players.
Adults £3 Juniors £1.50
What a night this was, probably one of the best of the year. Hats off to the handicapping as a lot of games finished 31-30 in the closest competition in it's short history. The singles were first up and the groups. The points totals at the end were close with no more than 15 points covering everyone and each player had chances to progress to the semis. The players to reach the semis were Andy Lee, John Hallgarth Carl Stones and Dave Rix. Up first was John and Dave, Dave never let John get on terms with him and with the help of the handicap moved smoothly to the final. Andy played Carl who had a 10 point start started well and when the score reached 18-8 Carl still had his handicap intact and looked favourite to go through. Things changed quickly has Andy won point after point to put himself back in the match and it was game on. The match went one way then the other until Andy fought his way through to the final to meet Dave.
In the final Dave had 20 points start which put Andy under alot of pressure from the start. Andy gradually pulled the deficit back and caught Dave up at 27 all and never looked back as he took the title for the second year running.
In the doubles Andy and his partner John were not so lucky as they came up against Dave Lee and Richard Robinson. A last minute change to the handicap by Carl Stones gave Dave and Richard one more point which provided the difference. Dave and Richard won 31-30, Andy and John thanked Carl lol.
The final was between Dave/Richard and Carl/Matt. Dave and Richard had 19 start and started well with great determination has Richard was defending his title. However the team of Carl and Matt had different ideas as they pulled the score level and then looked favourites however Dave/Richard never gave in and battled all the way. In the end it was not enough has Carl and Matt won the title. Carl was pleased as punch as he has won his own trophy.
All players wish to thank Carl for once again sponsoring the club champs
The season ends successfully for our club. Firstly the Cougars were crowned Mike Tunningley Shield Winners after defeating their club colleagues the Adders by a mere 12 points. It was a great night of table tennis will lots of banter throughout so well done to Dave Rix, Diddy Dave Lee and Ivan Stallworthy, lets not forget Luke Banton who has won his first ever league title.
Now to the Finals night were Andy Lee has won his first over 40s singles title by beating Pete Eyre 3-1 in the final. Andy won the first game but Pete fought back to win the second game comfortably and put the match in the balance. The next two games Andy was in full control has Pete had no answer to the attacking play.
Our other finalist on the night Dave Rix was not so lucky has he was defeated in the Handicap Singles. However Dave had a real chance and if he didn't miss a few serves and put a couple of smashes away the result would have possibly been different. Overall it was a good result to be runner-up in the competition as it is very difficult to reach the final.
Not to forget Lee Banton who in his last league game of the season had his best win up to yet as he defeated Regan Langley. Keep it up Lee all the hard work does pay off and more wins will follow.
I have been been extremely busy so been unable to keep the web up to date, apologies for that. Anyway another season is nearly over with just a couple of finals to go. The biggest final in the clubs history is in the Mike Tunningley Shield which is between RP Adders and RP Cougars. Which one of our teams will win this coming Tuesday at Redlands. Diddy Dave has set his sights on taking the mick when he plays against his son but I don't think he will succeed lol.
Additionally Dave Rix and Andy Lee are taking part in Finals night on the 24th April at Stanley Street and would welcome your support.
Just to note the Club Champs will be held on Tuesday 1st May which again is sponsored by Carl Stones. There will be a singles, and doubles. Will Andy be successful in defending his title (I doubt it). ENTRY IS FREE FOR EVERYONE SO BE THERE FOR 7.
Next season I propose we have pay as play. Therefore adults pay £3 and juniors £1.50 every game you play. The idea is that at every game you pay your team captain on the night of the game. This will mean I am not asking players for money and players will not get behind in paying their subs. Please let me know what you think?
Just to note some players owe some subs, can you please pay Andy either at the Club Champs or asap
Team of the week goes to the Adders who finally win there first league game of the year against Redlands Roosters. Things did not start well as the Adders went 4-0 down and all seemed lost, however they struck back with some venomous play and won the next 6 games. Two wins each from Mike, Andy, one from John and the doubles secured this unlikely victory.
However the winning streak did not last long as they went down by 19 points in the Diamond Premier prelim round to Global Marble.
Other winners this week were the Cougars who defeated Redlands Dynamos by 6-4 and consolidate their mid-table position. Wins from Ivan and Dave Rix was enough to put the dynamos lights out.
The Bees had no such look and were defeated 7-3 by Redlands Fluffy Toys and now just sit 1 point above club colleagues the Adders in Division one. The relegation battle is sure to hot up over the coming weeks. One win each from Matt, Stan and Gary was all they could muster.
Adders finally win their first game of the season but unfortunately it does not help their league position. The win came against fellow 1st division team MBE by 77 points. An allround performance from Andy, Mike and John was enough to put them through to the last 8.
The Dragons played fellow club colleagues the Bees and won by a very narrow 5 points, well done to Justin, Andy and Lee for getting through this difficult match.
Another one of our teams also got through and this time the Cougars chewed up Redlands Dynamos and won by 46 points. Well done to the 2 Daves and Ivan.
Unfortunately the Eagles could not join the rest of our teams and were defeated soundly by Stanley Street as they only had 2 players.
Let us hope the draw is kind to our 3 remaining teams and keeps them apart. So Dave you know what to do.
