Soham Comrades Table Tennis Club.  Our club’s events, both sport and social, will appear here with wider news of interest to our members.

Xmas meal for club members, prospective club members, and their partners on Friday 7th December at Wildwood, Newmarket.  According to some, this was a pleasant and successful evening.

Peter Diver is suggesting we repeat the event in the summer, so as to have our club AGM at the event.

The Club Drawn Doubles 2018 was won by Alan C. and  Ed.  Runners-up were Martyn and Mel.  Well done to everyone who took part.

National Table Tennis Day 2019 is Thursday 18th July

In January Brit. star Andrew Baggaley won the World Hard-bat Championship for a record third time.  Those who went to watch it at Ally Pally were very satisfied with the day out.

The current position (late January 2019) as regards the League Handbook is understood to be that Dan Bates has “disappeared”, though in December he was believed to be living somewhere in the Great Yarmouth area.  Our other Ely & District League representative to the county association (Roger) attended the recent county executive committee meeting where Cambridge & District League reported that Dan (who was also their General Secretary) had been “sacked”.  The Ely & District League Secretary is Rhys Davies and from the end of January he has ex officio taken over Dan’s duties.

It was Dan who was preparing this season’s league handbook, the AGM having accepted his request to be allowed “to do better than last season” in getting the handbook from Andy Maguire in good time, but it appears none of the executive committee (Rhys, Brian and Simon) have achieved any contact with Andy Maguire in New Zealand (who was supposed to have been putting together the handbook for us from material supplied by the committee through Dan, as last season).

Our Club Nights are Wednesdays and Thursdays (only occasional, if at all, during July and August).

Come along to Soham Comrades Club at 7.30pm Thursdays and 8pm Wednesdays, meet us, and try your skill on our tables.  Play in a plain dark shirt, gym shoes or trainers.  Equipment will be provided.  See us on Facebook!

AND AT SOHAM CHURCH FETE 2019 from 1pm

Everyone welcome!
