THE Burnham and District Table Tennis Annual Championship saw a number of big upsets and an unseeded champion.

Duncan Taylor recaptured the Veterans Singles title and claimed victory in the Veterans Doubles.

Taylor seized the title from the reigning champion in the over 40s category, Kevin Read.

After they had battled it out in the singles contest, the pair put their rivalry to one side and joined forces to triumph in the Veterans Doubles event.

They faced, and defeated, duo Keith Adams and Gary Young in a hard-fought 3-1 victory.

In the Mixed Open Singles competition, Dan Anderson threw down the gauntlet, defeating favourite Harry Chivers in a shocking upset.

That result opened up the field but it was Daniel Young and Lee McHugh who made what turned out to be a fantastic final.

After a fiercely fought contest, Young emerged victorious, winning the championship after the match had gone to a deciding fifth leg.

The division three singles competition saw the unseeded Peter Haverson beating the odds to reach the final.

Haverson eventually clinched his first Burnham title, the Fambridge Trophy, to the applause of the spectators as he overcame number one seed Ross Kirby.

In the division two championship, the top seed Barrie Delf was beaten at the quarter-final stage.

Colin Napper exited at the semi-finals, losing to the ultimate winner, Chris Hancox.

Hancox faced Dawn Baldry in a thrilling final, after she had beaten Lin Roff in her semi-final.

The event was organised by Tim Huxtable and his team of helpers.
