Brandon Crouchman Dominates Braintree Table Tennis League

Brandon Crouchman has once again proven his dominance in the Braintree Table Tennis League, finishing at the top of the individual averages. Despite missing out on the men’s singles title in the semi-final, Crouchman’s consistent performance throughout the season has solidified his status as a class act.

Crouchman suffered only one defeat, at the hands of Lee McHugh, who went on to beat him in the aforementioned semi-final. The 2017, 2018, and 2019 rating topper included last year’s champion, Paul Lucas, among his victims, though he did not face the current men’s singles champion, Paul Davison, as Davison missed the second match and Crouchman the first.

“The revelation of the season was the impressive form of Maria Boulton, who rose from 13th place to second. Her transfer from Netts to join Rayne A proved to be a crucial factor in the latter’s championship win.”

In Division 2, Jon Hill, a regular first division player, topped the averages, showcasing his consistent performance. He was stretched to five games in only two of his 17 sets, but had to come back from behind to beat Lawrence Grantham 3-2 in his final match.

  • Sean Clift moved up from sixth place in 2022 to fourth last year and now occupies the second position, demonstrating consistency.

The jump from Division 3 to 2 proved to be a mere stride for Szczepan Ziobro, who secured third place with only six defeats. In Division 3, it was the steady form of Graham Chinnery that claimed the top spot, despite a defeat to Charles Calisin and an unexpected loss to his father, Jimmy Calisin.

Jimmy Calisin nonetheless finished in a creditable fourth place, significantly improving his average from 60 last year to 85.7 this season.
