This season's Championships were held at Cippenham Table Tennis Club over two days:

Senior Events     Sunday 8th March 2020 

There were 46 entrants across 13 events at the Senior Closed which was played over 10 tables at Cippenham on Sunday 8th March. There was much hand washing and hand sanitiser in evidence as the usual post-match handshakes were replaced with tentative elbow and forearm nudges.

Wendy Porter put in a huge amount of time and effort to prepare the venue and the draws as well as running the tournament on the day – many thanks Wendy, you did a great job.

The award for staying power goes to Roger Pritchard who played 20 matches across 6 events, while for the ladies Kate Maksimenko was the busiest playing 14 matches across 5 events.

Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up in each of the events (listed below) and thanks to everyone who came along and took part.  Many thanks also to the various volunteers who helped on the day and ensured the venue was cleared on time.
