DAN Schweitzer made a rare but welcome return to the Whitby Endeavour table tennis team - and he made a handy contribution to help maintain their position in the van of the Scarborough Table Tennis League division three.
He overcame their second player Saraj in a thrilling five ender 5-11, 11-9, 11-8, 8-11, 6-11.
The experienced Ken Benford and Graham Cripps once again produced consistent performances in winning two of their singles each, followed by a convincing doubles win in three straight sets.
For Leviathans, AJ Tandam was their outstanding player with three comfortable wins in his singles, but was unable to give them another point by winning the doubles with M Mavuri.
This win keeps Endeavour in the top three of the division three with several matches still to be played, following earlier postponements.
