Brilliant Play by Women Aids Table Tennis Victory

Brilliant Play by Women Aids Table Tennis Victory

Victoria won the table tennis cup, mostly due to the splendid play of the ladles of the team. Miss P. Ralph and Miss J. Strange. In the ladies' singles Miss Ralph beat Miss Douth-waite (Otago) 21-7, 19-21, 21-12, and Miss Strange accounted for Miss Davis (Otago) in easy fashion 21-19, 21-8. In the doubles Misses Strange and Ralph defeated Misses New-combe and Pemberton (Auckland) 21-18 and 27-25. In the mixed doubles some more clever play by Miss Strange gave VUC a decision over Canterbury. Messrs Yen and Jones were the male members of the team, Yen winning his singles against McKenzie (Otago) 21-17, 21-19, but losing with Jones in the men's doubles to McKenzie and Robson (Otago) 21-15, 21-13.
