Amber Rudd visits the Hastings Academy Table Tennis Centre (13th April 2018)
We were very pleased to welcome Amber Rudd our local MP and the Home Secretary on a fact finding visit to the Hastings Academy Table Tennis Centre on one of our open practice evenings.
Amber was greeted by Michael Hart (Association President) and Keith Lindsey (the event organiser).
Amber met with several players during her visit including Rose Rainton and Sheila King, who had recently been praised by Amber for their successes in the National Veterans tournaments.
During her visit Amber enjoyed a practice with our table tennis robot before playing a game of doubles with the aforementioned Rose, Sheila and Michael.
The evening was well attended by players of all ages and abilities which hopefully provided Amber with a good overview of the work being done for table tennis locally.
We would like to thank Amber for taking time out of her extremely busy schedule to visit the Academy and helping us promote our sport and offer an open invitation to her should she wish to visit again either officially or just to enjoy some friendly table tennis practice.
We would also like to thank the Hastings Academy for their assistance with this event.
