Mark Gregory Wins Men's Atlantics

Mark Gregory of Prince Edward Island finished off a perfect year with a come from behind win against Ian Kent of Nova Scotia, to claim his first Atlantic Championship title.  Mark also led the PEI team of Alex Younker, Robert Gao and Yefang Jiang to regain the mens team title after being defeated by Newfoundland the previous year.  Nick Hiscock capped off a fantastic tournament by beating Nova Scotia's top junior, Josh MacMillan, in a hard fought 5 game match to claim the junior boys title for the first time in his career.  In womens action, Leigha Shiels won her first women's title, defeating a fellow junior girls team member, Lindsay Sibley, in a close and exciting match.  One of the most exciting matches of the tournament was between Alex Younker and Robert Gao in the finals of the under 21 division, with Alex eventually winning in the 5th game to hang on to his under 21 title.  Gao of PEI did not go home empty handed though, as he was the recipient of the Mo Mohammed award which is given out to the player who most demonstrates fair play during the tournament. The over 40 division saw Sheldon Pyne take the title.  Sheldon, after being absent for a number of years, returned to fine form as he was able to knock off top seed Mervyn Greenham in the semi finals and go on to beat Steve Peers in the finals.  The over 50 event proved to be one of the more exciting events with Ian Kent of NS winning in the finals over Wade Gregory of PEI.  The mens doubles event saw two PEI teams battle it out to the end with Wade Gregory and Todd Gregory eventually claiming gold defeating Mark Gregory and Alex Younker.  The Atlantics once again brought out the top players from the Atlantic provinces and provided spectators with high level, entertaining action all weekend.  For all other results, please see the "Atlantic Table Tennis" website at www.freewebs.com/atlantictabletennis

P.E.I Team Tournament

The P.E.I Team Tournament was held Nov. 3 at Stonepark school with Mark and Todd Gregory retaining their crown after defeating Graham Forrester and Max Newby 5-0 in the final.  Forrester and Newby also had a great tournament as they beat the strong team of Isaac and Tyler Kent of Nova Scotia 3-2 to claim 2nd, their only loss was to the Gregory brothers.  Evan Forrester and Stephen DesRoches capped off a strong performance beating Eddie Jiang and Marcus Llewellyn in the final 3-2 to win the "B" division.  Notable strong performances came from Eddie Jiang, Marcus Llewellyn, Alex Younker and Robert Gao as they all had impressive upsets throughout the day.  The P.E.I Team Tournament saw 10 teams competing for the titles which made for an interesting afternoon as many players had some very tough matches.  The Next Tournament will be on Dec 8th in Nova Scotia, it is a Marathon Tournament.  Also Todd Gregory will be off to the North American Team Tournament in Baltimore on Nov 22, he is teaming up with Ian Kent and Mike Chatfield of Nova Scotia.

Fall Classic

The Fall Classic was recently held in Charlottetown with Todd Gregory winning the "A" divison, Darcy Cudmore winning the "B" division and Robert Gao winning the "C" division.  Todd Gregory defended his title as he went 6-0 including a win over eventual runner up Mark Gregory.  Darcy Cudmore had his work cut out for him as he defeated Eddie Jiang in a hard fought match to take the "B" division, Jiang was the runner up.  The "C" division was much closer as it came down to a 3-way tie between Robert Gao, Alex Younker and Cynthia Cao, with Gao eventually coming out the winner and Younker taking the second position.  The tournament was a good way to start off the season and it looks like it will be another promising year for the P.E.I players.


The 2007/08 Schedule is finally up!  Look in the events section for the complete list.  Also if you are wondering about Quebec tournaments or other Canadian tournaments that you would like to attend then click on the link in the events section.

Thailand a success for Gregory

Todd Gregory of P.E.I recently returned from Thailand where he represented Canada at the World University Games (Universiade).  The Canadian Men's team finished 0-2 as they lost to top seed Taipei and later lost to a strong team from the Ukraine.  In doubles Gregory and partner Derek Wong lost in the first round to Greece and later Gregory and mixed doubles partner Stephanie Yuen lost a close 5th game to a team from Macao. Gregory had his most success in singles, where he defeated Tserentogtokh Baatar of Mongolia making it to the round of 64 where he eventually lost to Young Man Kim of Korea.  Overall it was a great experience for the Island player as the tournament was a host to some of the top table tennis players in the world.  


Ian Kent (NS) captured the Silver Medal in the Standing Men's Individual Class 8 event after a close match against USA's Tahl Leibovitz. Although Ian finished second to Tahl in the event the Americanís new classification was revoked during competition and he was assigned to Class 9/10 for future events. According to IPTTC Selection Officer Nico Verspeelt this means that the IPTTC considers Ian to have qualified for the Paralympic Games in Beijing next year as the Americaís Region qualifier.

Kent then joined with Masoud Mojtahed (Class 7) in the Standing Menís Team Class 8 event and won another Silver Medal losing to the USAís Tahl Leibovitz and Wayne Lo.

BC's Stephanie Chan will return from Rio with 2 Medals in her hands - a Silver in the Standing Women's Individual Class 6-8 and a Bronze Medal for her win in Women's Open Class 6-10.

A proud moment came for Rťal Poudrier from Montreal, QC and Martin Pelletier from Gatineau when they captured the Bronze Medal in the Men's Team Class 9-10 in a close 3-2 match over a tough Venezuelan team.

Kudos to Coach John Macpherson who was a very busy man during the competition and congratulations to everyone on the successful nine member Team...great performances!


The PEI Menís team captured Gold in the Atlantic Senior Menís Team event for the third consecutive year at the Atlantic Table Tennis Championships held in Canning, Nova Scotia on the weekend. The team of Todd Gregory, Mark Gregory and Graham Forrester lost only two matches, defeating Newfoundland 4-1, the Nova Scotia 2 team 5-0 and claiming victory by a decisive 4 matches to 1 against the top ranked Nova Scotia team, comprised of Farhad Bakezadeh, Ian Kent and Michael Chatfield.

In Menís Singles, Todd Gregory was runner-up, losing to Farhad Bakezadeh 14-12 in the seventh game of an exciting best of seven final, failing, by the narrowest of margins, in his bid to win this event for a fourth consecutive year. Gregory did repeat, however, as the Under 21 winner, defeating Michael Chatfield of Nova Scotia 2-0 in the final, and he teamed up with brother, Mark, to take Menís Doubles, defeating Merv Greenham and Eric Cranford of Newfoundland.

Mark Gregory was runner-up in the Menís 21-39 category, losing 11-9 to former Atlantic champion, Merv Greenham, of Newfoundland, in the fifth game of a closely fought final match. Evan Forrester, of Montague, was the winner of Under 900 Singles, defeating Carl Cudmore, also from PEI, in the final. Todd Gregory and Lucy Wang combined to win Mixed Doubles, defeating Bakezadeh and Theresa Yuill of Nova Scotia in the final and Mark Gregory and Ryan Forrester finished second in Menís "B" Doubles, losing in the final to Greenham and Zachery Clarke of Newfoundland.

Also representing PEI at the event were Darcy Cudmore, Eddie Jiang, Cody Cudmore, Marcus Llewellyn, and Jefang Jiang. Coaches Wade Gregory, Najam Chishti, and Graham Forrester, were pleased with the provinceís showing as the senior Men are continuing to be dominant in their events and junior players are showing steady improvement.

Evan Forrester was the top finisher from P.E.I recently at the 2007 Canada Winter Games,  Evan defeated Ryan Bachli of Yukon Territories to claim the 14th spot in the under 18 male division and cap off a great weekend.  Darcy Cudmore finished 19th in the under 18 male division, Darcy defeated Richard Hibbs from Newfoundland to take the 19th position.  In the under 18 female divison Mohan Zhong came out the top P.E.I finisher sporting an impressive win over Zara Bachli of Yukon Territories to finish in 16th.  Mabel Wang was next finishing 21st after beating Katie Knight from Yukon Territories in a tough and hard fought match.  In the under 15 male division it was Cody Cudmore who finished 17th followed by fellow teammate Ryan Forrester who finished 18th, both had great weekends.  Cody's Biggest win came against Lawrence Downey from Newfoundland while Ryan's biggest win came against Brandon Wiseman also from Newfoundland.  Last but not least the lone competitor in the under 15 female divison Lucy Yang finished 15th after defeating Claire Abbot from Yukon Territories.  It was a week of learning for these athletes and a great experience, the next big tournament will be the Atlantics.  Congratulations to all competitors and coach Graham Forrester for a very succesful tournament.


The 2007 Canada Winter Games squad from P.E.I got off to a rocky start in team play as they were defeated 12-0 by Manitoba and then lost 12-0 to Alberta, not to mention they were storm stayed in Halifax for a few days and got to the tournament without rest or practice.  They soon turned it around though, they lost to Newfoundland 7-6 in a tie - breaker but it was a much better result than the first two.  Cody Cudmore, Lucy Yang, Mohan Zhong, and Evan Forrester all won there singles matches against Newfoundland.  Cody Cudmore and Ryan Forrester won their doubles match and the Darcy Cudmore/Evan Forrester duo won their doubles aswell.  P.E.I then had to default two key matches forcing a tie - breaker where the mixed pair of Mohan Zhong and Evan Forrester lost in a heartbreaker 3-1. They then had to face the top ranked Quebec team losing 12-0 but with many close matches.  The team then took on Yukon. Defaulting 2 matches basically had them starting down 2-0 to the Yukon team, but P.E.I still made it a race to the finish but again getting the short end of the stick one more time losing 7-5.  Winning their singles matches were Lucy Yang, Mohan Zhong, Evan Forrester and Ryan Forrester.  Mabel Wang and Mohan Zhong then went on to win their doubles match to close out the team event.  P.E.I ended up placing 10th in the team event, singles is now in progress.


Todd Gregory recently finished tied for 3rd at the Stiga National Youth Team Challenge held in Gatineau, Quebec.  Gregory went 4-4 on the first day, but seemed to really pick his play up the second day as he went a perfect 7-0 to finish with an 11-4 record.  He tallied 26 points out of a possible 30 at the tournament.  Noteable results included a come from behind victory over Manitoba's Tian Terry Zhang who finished 2nd in the tournament. After being down 2-0 Gregory was able to fight back to win 3-2.  Against the eventual winner Tony Liu of B.C, Gregory led 2-1 before succumbing 3-2.  As a result of his showing, Gregory has been invited to play in the Canada Cup and North American Championships.


Brothers Darcy and Cody Cudmore won their divisions at the Nova Scotia Junior Marathon table tennis tournament in Dutch Settlement recently.  Cody was very impressive on the weekend winning the "B" divison with a perfect record of 7-0.  Darcy was also in fine form as he posted a 7-0 record as well to claim the "C" divison title.  It was not just the Cudmores who were shining though as the Forrester brothers also put up a strong showing.  Evan Forrester finished as the top islander with a 4-4 record in the "A" divison, and Ryan Forrester finished 2nd place in the "C" divison with a 6-1 record.  Newcomer Marcus Llewellyn was the surprise showing at the tournament, in only his first off island tournament he was able to grab 3rd place in the "C" division with a record of 4-3.  The Canada games team will now head off to the Yukon next week for the Canada Games, we wish them luck.


Recently at the P.E.I Island Closed tournament Hong Zhong was presented with an award for all his hard work, dedication, and his overall contribution to the P.E.I.T.T.A.  Hong is full deserving of this award as he rairly ever missed practice, he is on the P.E.I.T.T.A board, coaches some of the younger players, and also still manages to keep his game at a high level.  The P.E.I.T.T.A would just like to thank Hong for all he has done for the sport of Table Tennis in P.E.I and we wish him and Mohan (daughter) the best of luck when they move to B.C in March.  They will definitely be missed.


The P.E.I Island Closed tournament was held this past weekend in Charlottetown with Todd Gregory, Evan Forrester, Darcy Cudmore, Cody Cudmore and Mohan Zhong claiming the singles events.  Todd Gregory just edged out Mark Gregory in a nail biting final with a score of 3-2 to win the mens singles division.  Evan Forrester took the under 18 title after defeating fellow Canada Games team member Darcy Cudmore.  Darcy Cudmore then went on to win the under 600 ratings event sporting an impressive tournament.  The under 15 title was won by Cody Cudmore who is also a member of the Canada Games squad.  Mohan Zhong claimed the under 18 title as she cruised to victory to pick up the first place position.  In doubles it was Hong Zhong and Mohan Zhong defeating Todd Gregory and Marcus Llewellyn to win the "A" division doubles title with a perfect record of 3-0.  In the under 1600 ratings doubles it was the the older brothers teaming up to beat the younger brothers once again, Evan Forrester and Darcy Cudmore defeated Ryan Forrester and Cody Cudmore. Next up is the N.S junior marathon tournament for the Canada Games team, also Todd Gregory is heading to the National under 21 team selection camp.  Good luck to all next week.

The Prince Edward Island Table Tennis league is starting up again in early September after sporting an impressive 05/06 season and an excellent showing at the Atlantics.

Prince Edward Island swept a number of major events at the Atlantic Table Tennis Championships held in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland. Todd Gregory, of Charlottetown, won his third consecutive Menís Singles title and the Prince Edward Island Menís team earned its second Gold Medal in two years.

Gregory won 4 events in total, including Menís Singles, Under 21 Singles, Menís Doubles, in which he teamed up with his brother, Mark, and the Menís Team event, with fellow team members, Mark Gregory, Graham Forrester and Wade Gregory.

In Menís Singles, Gregory defeated Ian Kent of Nova Scotia 3-0 in the semi-final

and Farhad Bakezadeh, also of Nova Scotia, 4-1 in the best of 7 final.

In the Menís Team event, the Nova Scotia team of Bakezadeh, Kent and Al Martel took an early 2-1 lead over the PEI team, creating a must-win situation for the Gregory brothers in their singles match-ups against the top two rated Nova Scotia players. Todd Gregory defeated Bakezadeh and in the deciding fifth match, Mark Gregory defeated former Atlantic champion, Ian Kent, to earn the PEI Menís team the Gold Medal for the second consecutive year.

In Menís Doubles, two teams from the Island reached the semi-finals. Mark and Todd Gregory defeated the Newfoundland team of Merv Greenham and Eric Cranford in 5 games (3-2) while the other Island team of Wade Gregory and Graham Forrester was knocked out by the top seeded Nova Scotia team of Farhad Bakezadeh and Al Martel 3-2. The Gregory brothers then defeated the Nova Scotia team 3-1 in the final to retain their 2005 title.

Islanders were also successful in the "D" Singles, in which Carl Cudmore of Charlotteown was the winner and Evan Forrester of Montague was runner-up. Stephen Desroches, Cody Cudmore and Ryan Forrester also had some excellent matches throughout the weekend, coming very close to knocking off some of the top seeds in their events.

In the Junior team events, both the PEI Boyís team, consisting of Evan Forrester, Caleb Reid, Michael Wang and Darcy Cudmore, and the PEI Girlís team of Mohan Zang and Lucy Yang, who teamed up with a Newfoundland player for the event, won Bronze. Winter Games Coach, Graham Forrester, was pleased with the performance of both Junior teams and will use the tournament to better assess the progress of his players as they build towards the 2007 Canada Winter Games.

Two special awards were presented to Islanders at the Tournament Banquet. Najam Chishti received an award for his tireless dedication to the sport of Table Tennis spanning 3 decades and Lucy Yang received the Mo Mohammed Fair Play Award.
