Finals started in Renmark Table Tennis on Wednesday night with both Division One games close and decided 7-5.

Spinners won against Flat Bats in the Second Semi Final with the best double Dennis Rbbinson and Darren Nitschke defeating Jayden Perry and Rod Stoeckel 11-4, 11-8, 11-4 and in the singles Nitschke defeating Perry 12-10, 11-6, 6-11, 12-10 and Robinson winning 11-6, 11-5, 9-11, 11-5 against Perry. On paper the match had appeared  destined for a white wash with Spinners being one player down and having to forfeit five rubbers but they really took up the challenge and moved directly to the Grand Final.
