As a warm up for the new season Spalding and District Table Tennis League welcomed Denis Neale, 6 times National Singles Champion, twice English Open title holder and 1969 World Doubles Bronze medallist along with Steve Gray.
Neale offered several practice routines to improve players’ timing and movement about the table.
17 members attended and had the opportunity to spar with Denis and Steve as well as carrying out the routines with each other.
The new season’s entries have been slow getting going but for now at least we have seven entries for Division 1 and four for Division 2.
In addition there are nine other players, possibly four for Division 2 and five for Division 1, who have expressed an interest, which would bring numbers closer to last years’ figures.
It is not too late for anyone else interested in joining the League to contact us, with or without someone else to make a team, but we hope to start the season on 25th September.
Teams need a minimum of two players.
Members are also advised that, following the AGM, the committee have adjusted the rules relating to postponing matches.
A copy will be posted on the notice board.
