At the Home Countries Veterans Table Tennis Championships in the Isle of Man, Surrey’s Tony Needham won gold for Wales in the over 70s doubles partnering Paul Collins. 

Paul Collins and Tony Needham.

In the over 70s team event Tony won silver alongside Paul Collins and Dennis Bromage. The over 70s singles saw Tony win silver. Overall an amazing performance.

Another wonderful day was had in aid of Ukrainian refugees at Graham Spicer Institute TT Club in New Malden on Saturday, September 24, which raised £1,500.

Thanks goes to all the entrants and people who donated. Bribar, well know table tennis equipment suppliers, donated some of the prizes and donated all the food on the day.

Jarek Chrzanowski won the tournament with Burymead’s (Guildford) Tim Waller runner-up. In the semi-finals Jarek beat Eugeni Genchev and Tim Waller beat Tony Needham.

Special thanks to Pawel Meryn for organising the event, Kumiko Williams for running the tournament, many other helpers and the Graham Spicer Institute for providing the venue.
