A number of people have asked about places to practise. Please have a look on the website http://pingexeter.co.uk which is run by Active Devon on behalf of the Ping project (Penny and I sit on the steering committee). Follow the link to "Play on".
You'll see a number of club links including Exeter City FC, Newton Abbot, Newton St Cyres, West Exe, Exe TT, Ottery and Starcross. If there are any more to add (or any changes to details) please use the contact details on the site to inform them.
We are happy to promote crossover clubs or sessions which straddle the boundaries between "social" and "competitive" TT. For instance I personally am enjoying the Exeter City FC Monday night sessions which are in this spirit.
