The Sunraysia Table Tennis “Cash Converters” Summer pennant is underway with twenty two teams taking part and with a trial of an amended format of fast fifteens in place. The matches instead of best of five to eleven will in this pennant be a best of three games to fifteen points to slipstream the night and make matches faster and potentially more exciting.
Pennant one action featured victories to Regional Taxation Services, Cash Converters and Max Miller Carpets all won by the narrowest margin of six rubbers to five in matches that could have gone either way. Players to standout with three singles wins were Matt Avers, Matt Ljubic and Phil Smith who are seeded the top three players in this pennant. Avers and Ljubic are two youngsters on the rise while Smith is a new player to the competition who has moved to the district recently and will be an asset to the association. He has a variety of serves and an attacking game on both the forehand and backhand sides.
