Cippenham Table Tennis Club has done the "double". A month after Cippenham Saxons won the top division of the Maidenhead League, club mates Cippenham Vikings have been confirmed as Division 2 champions. Congratulations to the team of Qasim Hussain, Walter Aldridge, Armando Borges and Clive Chapman.

The feat was achieved with the final two matches against runners-up NWCA Raiders remaining unplayed. Vikings were sixteen points ahead of Raiders who were unable to field a team to complete those final two fixtures. With the third placed team way behind, a full fifty-one points, having played those two games extra, the season had become a bit of a romp for Vikings.

Even so, it was two of the Raiders' players who finished in the top two positions in the averages, with Walter, Armando and Clive third, fourth and fifth. Qasim, who captained his team superbly all season, finished further down but won two-thirds of his matches.

This completes a highly successful season for Cippenham in the Maidenhead League having won both divisions with another team, Cippenham Trojans, runners-up in Division 1. All the major honours at the Maidenhead Closed also came home to Cippenham players.
