Corby Smash Ryan

Ryan Jenkins, Welsh senior table tennis International aged 39, deservedly took the inaugural Corby Smash Butterfly Superleague title and the £250 prize money.  The Welshman, rated at No.5 on the Table Tennis England rating list took the title beating England No.7 Chris Doran in a fantastic high quality final at the brand new Corby Smash Table Tennis Centre, avenging his London Grand Prix defeat from just two weeks earlier.  Ryan was imperious throughout the evening with 3rd placed Adam Nutland the only man to take an end off the current Grand Prix Champion in the semi final.
