The last one-day events in this year's Wychavon Parish Games, took place on Sunday, when the two Table Tennis events took place at St Egwin's CE Middle School in Evesham.

Six Parishes turned up for the Junior event in the morning, which was sponsored by Vic Haines Transport.  After some really close games and with many matches needing the five games to get a result, Eckington emerged as winners for the second year running beating Hill and Moor into second place.    Other Parishes taking part were Bretforton, Inkberrow, Wyre Piddle and North and Middle Littleton. 

The Senior event in the afternoon, sponsored by Inkberrow Parish Council attracted a good entry of 13 Parishes.  Again, there were a lot of really close games and matches, but eventually, North and Middle Littleton reached the final.  Here they met a combination Wick/Church Lench team, made up of a father, John Mytton, who is in his 80's, and his son Stef.  North & Middle Littleton were in the lead after the singles, but Wick/Church Lench won the doubles.  The result was, therefore decided in the reverse singles, with North and Middle Littleton winning the trophy for the first time since 1994.  Losing semi-finalists were Hill and Moor and Wyre Piddle.  Other Parishes taking part were Badsey, Crowle, Drakes Broughton, Broadway, Harvington. Inkberrow, Bretforton, Fladbury and Eckington

The knock-out events are all progressing well, with most events at the quarter-final stage. The semi-finals of the Dominoes will be played within the next two weeks. The first semi-final is between Sedgeberrow and Pinvin, while the other is between Wick and Bretforton, which is a repeat of last year's final.

The Presentation Evening, which will be attended by the Chairman of Wychavon District Council, will take place on Wednesday 19th November at the Bell Inn in Eckington"
