Essex County Table Tennis Association – 2016 Closed Championships News
Held At The Rayleigh Leisure Centre, Rawreth Lane, Rawreth On The 27th_29th August 2016

In the Men’s Over 40s Singles, there were shocks as un-seeded Django Fung took the Title. Django, who is more renowned as the Manager of Ronnie O‚ÄôSullivan and Judd Trump, turned his attention to Table Tennis. In the top half of the draw, No. 1 Seed Rik James lost a close five setter to Mark Wicker, only for Mark to lose in the Semi-Final to No. 4 seed, Gary Young. In the bottom half of the draw, there was an early shock when No. 3 seed Kevin Read, lost in straight sets to unseeded Django Fung. Django then beat Southend Premier Player, Babul McLeod, again in straight sets. The Final was a very tight match poised at two sets all and 9 all in the decisive fifth Set, before Django took the Title 9, -12, -5, 6, 9. This was the shock of Championships, great effort by Django.
