It's going to be a busy few months for the Clacton and District League, starting with the Handicapped Singles Tournament on Saturday 2nd February at Windsor's St James Hall venue.
The Tournament will be run this year on a group basis and, with eight groups of four and the top two going through to the knock-out stage, every player should be guaranteed at least three matches. There will be a maximum of 32 players so entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
Entries can be made by post to Tony Oswick or on-line to Peter White. The entry fee is £3.00 and the closing date for entries is Sunday 27th January. Full details are on the League's website.
After this, planning will start for the Closed Championships which take place over the weekend of 13th and 14th April at the Clacton Coastal Academy Sports Hall. As with the Handicapped Singles, full details will be sent to all players and will appear on the League's website.
And, of course, this week's sees the start of the main action in the Knock-Out Cup, with 32 of the League's teams competing in Round Two of the competition. The final takes place on Tuesday 30th April at the Brotherhood Hall.
Junior Coaching continues on Monday evenings at the Coastal Academy Sports Hall and the League will also be working with local schools to promote table tennis in the Tendring area. In addition, the League is making arrangements to be represented at the Tendring Show on Saturday 13th July.
Finally, the League will also be organising a Fun Quiz at the Brotherhood Hall on Saturday 16th March. More details to follow.
