Six nations success for Forsyth and IoM over 60s team

England carried off all but one of the team event trophies at the Home International Veterans Six Nations table tennis tournament at the NSC.

 

They won the over 40s men's and women's titles, as well as the men's and women's over 50s events and the over 60s mixed.

 

The only title to elude them was the over 70s when they finished runners-up to Ireland.

 

There was success for the Isle of Man in the DLP sponsored event when Margaret Forsyth, who plays locally for the Tower Club, won the women's over 70s individual plate competition, beating a Welsh opponent in the final.

 

Meanwhile, the Island's over 60s team pulled off a 5-2 win over Guernsey in the team event.
