Despite the horrid weather conditions we had a wide range of competitors and supporters turn out for a fun filled night of table tennis. There were a range of ages, abilities and backgrounds at the event but everyone was welcomed and supported by all.
The event was a showcase of how sports such as table tennis can bring out a hugely diverse crowd and break down social barriers. Last night saw young players translating and umpiring bilingually and older players sharing experiences and culture with younger players.
Although there were prizes awarded to the winners, the sportsmanship and comradery shown by all in attendance proves that taking part isn’t so much about winning or losing but having fun. We hope that this will encourage others to join table tennis in the New Year whether they are experienced players or looking for a new sport or somewhere to socialise, Table Tennis welcomes all.
