Mike Hugh has given us sad news:
"It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Roger Bowkett.
He was a true friend, a special person liked by everyone, a competitor, a great ambassador for table tennis.
He will sorely be missed but never forgotten.
Rest well my friend"
Roger was well known as a player in the Exeter League, and also as a coach and organizer in Okehampton, Plymouth and Tavistock. Mike's words about Roger will be echoed by those of us in Exeter too.
More can be found about Roger on the Okehampton Table Tennis Club Facebook page.
Despite these sad circumstances, the forthcoming Okehampton Junior 1* Tournament (which Roger was to have organized) will go ahead as planned, and as Roger would undoubtedly have wanted. The entry details are unchanged.
