The Bath and District Table Tennis League’s end of season presentation/social evening took place at Bath City FC on Friday 20th May. The function was well-attended by members and their partners/families who enjoyed a buffet, and were entertained by a quiz and a performance by the chamber ensemble “No Strings Attached.” For the first time in many years the event was attended by the Mayor of Bath – the league’s patron.
The Mayor (Councillor Will Sandry) presented trophies to the winners and runners-up of the league titles, team cup competitions, and closed championships.
Chippenham A’s Gary Baldwin won a number of team and individual trophies, including his eleventh Open Singles title, but was unable to collect his awards in person as he was taking part in the World veteran’s championships in Alicante. His young daughter Suzanne received his prizes on his behalf.
Leon Kashdan-Brown of Bathford D, the winner of two junior cups at the closed championships, was also unable to attend in person. He was representing the South-West in the national inter-region championships being held at Kettering.
