Last Saturday saw the second of our Annual Ping Pong tornaments, the stakes were up this year. 12 brave souls stepped up to the challenge compared to our 7 from last year. We knew it was going to be tough, some fairly experienced players came, carefully look after bats in tow, sports drinks make from barley and hops, and the knockout scoreboard was drawn ( on my back window as it happens). Spanning 5 and half hours the contestants sweated it hoping to be this years grand master. The title was taken out by Justin, narrowly beating Lawley to a 9/11 win. As the action on the evening was fast paced ( and due to low light on the back porch) it was hard to capture evidence of the skill and grace of all the players, as they darted around the playing space creating impressive rallies.
