March and District Table Tennis Club held a competitive Christmas doubles event at Neale-Wade Academy.

The knockout styled event consisted of groups of four, with the top two teams from each group going through to the quarter-finals.

Those to advance were Phil & Marti Pentney, Steve Buttriss & Mike Smith, Phil Locke & Mark Woodall and Harry & John Palmer.
