Tribute to Bob Taylor former President of Banbury and District TableTennis Association
I grew up with Bob as when we were boys as we only lived a couple of streets away from each other back in the 1940's-1950's era. Our paths took very different routes, as Bob went on to higher education where mine went into the printing industry. Both of us played table tennis for many years with Bob playing for BGN and me for the Conservative team. where my time was just about playing, Bob went on to be a Club Representative, Secretary of the league and of course he was President for some 5 years, he was also our OTTA Representative for some time and also managed the Oxfordshire County Junior Team. Bob was a man dedicated to B & DTTA and also Blessed George Napier. I played against him many times over the years and we had some great matches. Our sympathy goes to his family at this sad and difficult time.
