The Service of Celebration for David Conn's life was extremely well attended, in tribute to all his personal, professional and sporting contributions. Thank you to the many who came from our table-tennis community, including past and present officers of our League, members of West Exe and other clubs and the Table Tennis England Coach Paul Whiting.
We have sad news that David Conn, former Secretary and Coach of West Exe has died. Our deepest sympathy from the League to all David's family and friends. David's passion for table-tennis has left a lasting legacy including Ping and related projects of which he was an enthusiastic supporter.
Jamie has asked us to pass on the funeral announcement (see below). As it will be a celebration of David's life, non-black dress code is preferred.
