Despite a major GP on the same day there was a decent turn-out for the third instalment of this season’s Ipswich Britannia Senior Super Series of table tennis in Ipswich, writes Andrew Dosher.

In group one Suffolk’s Andrew Warner and Dudi Dubiner, from London, both overcame Dan Millburn, and in their game to decide the group winner it was Warner who came from a game down to win 3-1.

In group two September’s winner from France, Mathieu Jabault, and Essex’s Gavin Price both beat Kevin Dumble before Jabault won their encounter to come top 3-1.

Christopher Cockburn progressed in first position in group three with wins over Simon Haliday and Stuart Laws.

Norfolk’s Shaune Parsley eased through in first place in group four with 3-0 wins over Stephen Clubb and Sylvain Floury, while Clubb beat Floury 3-1 to come second.

Group five was the only one to have four players and included friends Lewy Carby and Ryan Moore who both beat Kelly Yuenyongpknan and Miriam Hetzel for the right to play off for the top place. Despite a close second set it was Carby that emerged a 3-0 winner.

In group six Andrew Dosher and Lee McHugh both beat Neil Page and a tough four-setter just went the way of Dosher to decide the group.

In the first semi-final Warner took on Carby and it was a five-setter as Warner took the first two, only to be pegged back to 2-2. A good start in the fifth saw it go the way of Warner.

The other semi-final couldn’t have been more different as Cockburn was determined to get to the final and Jabault had no answer going down 3-0.

The final was a classic. In a tight-edged first set Cockburn got home, however a determined start in the second saw Warner ease home to four.

Likewise in the third Cockburn won just as easily, and from there on it was drama all the way as it was virtually point for point.

Warner won deuce to level, then go 10-6 in the decider, only for Cockburn to claw back to deuce. But after some trademark backhand kills it was number one seed Warner who won by the tightest of margins.
