Comebacks maintain winning run

Round six of the Batlow Table Tennis competition was played at Batlow RSL on Thursday night with Comebacks defeating Hot Shots 16-7, while Bats N Balls were too good for Mixed Mob, winning 15-8.  

Teams are well and truly into the season now, so most players have settled into a rhythm and teams have all played together. 

Comebacks were obviously still on a high from their big win last week and have won again, although not as high a score. 

Scott Pearce (-26) won five of his seven games and Lachie Pearce won four and lost three.

Cat Jackson, who was filling in for the team, won four and lost two, showing she has found her feet in table tennis. 

It’s great to see teenagers playing with their parents and the other adults. 

Hot Shots players Greg Peel won four and lost three and Kevin Miller, also filling in, won three and lost four. 


Bron Peel was the standout for the women winning two of her six games. 

Greg and Bron Peel have been playing for years and it’s great to see them back again this year. 

The second lot of results showed Bats N Balls defeating Mixed Mob.

Mixed Mob bounced back well after being annihilated by Comebacks last week, but Bats N Balls were just too good even though game scores were close. 

Captain Emma Trueman won three of the six games whilst daughter Isabelle Trueman won two and lost four. 

Pat Rhynehart won five and lost two of his games.

Bats N Balls youngster Arthur Smith won all of his seven games for the night, whilst Dad Derek Smith won five and lost two. 


Clare Miller won four and lost two after having a few weeks off it’s great to see Clare back. 

There is a general bye this coming week for the Rotary Changeover so all teams have a week’s break. 

Round seven will be held on June 30, with Bats N Balls v Hot Shots and Comebacks v Brumbies. Mixed Mob have the bye.
