Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 29, No. 12. 1966.
Table-Tennis has been strong in Victoria for some years and this strength was proved (up to the time of the Auckland match) in a series of consistent wins, all with good margins.
In the first day of play Victoria played Canterbury, winning the series 14-7 and beating Otago by a handsome majority of 17-4. Similar wins were recorded in the second day of play when Victoria beat Massey 18-3 and Lincoln 20-1. It was at the hands of Auckland that Victoria was soundly beaten 18 games to 4, Auckland taking the championship, displacing Victoria in the process. In spite of this disappointing ending to a largely successful tournament the table-tennis team made a very real contribution to the final tournament placings and for this Victoria should be grateful.
