The first table tennis competition in Weston-super-Mare in over 20 years is being held on 21st December at the For All Healthy Living Centre, Lonsdale Avenue, WSM.
16 players will compete for cash prizes on 4 tables for this Xmas tournament.
Entry is open to players of all ages and abilities.
The competition has been organised by N&B Table Tennis Club and the Weston League and is being sponsored by Dave's Classic Toys.
League Development Officer John Ratajczak said that this competition represents a continuation of the growth of table tennis in the area. October 2012 saw the establishment of the N&B Table Tennis Club with Sport England funding, then a free table tennis session at the For All Healthy Living Centre, coaching being delivered at the N&B club and now a Xmas tournament. He hopes that this will be the first of several competitions to be staged over the coming 12 months.
This tournament is open to non-members and will give players a guaranteed 6 matches over 3 hours competing for 8 cash prizes so half of the entrants will be rewarded.
