Branko Vucurovic is again the Avril Hodges Memorial Tuesday morning table tennis fixtures A grade champion.
Branko won his second successive title this week, overcoming Tony Bowman in the final.
The two both play a defensive style mixed with attack and there were many long rallies, but Branko’s overall consistency proved too much in the final.
George Camilleri and Mike Ibbotsen won the doubles against Branko Vucurovic and Peter Goodson.
The division 2 final went to Marie Taylor from Louise Gould. Marie teamed with Robyn Bushell to win the doubles from Iris Grasso and Cheryl Pearson.
