As the new winter season beckons a new generation of young players are emerging in each of our 3 divisions. These players will prove to be the lifeblood of our league for years to come. Welcome also to all of the new players young and old(er!) and a special welcome to some new players who have played for many years in the Northumbria league who have also chosen to play in our league this season - their presence will only serve to improve the competitiveness of our league.
I would also like to thank the more established players for your continued support and loyalty - your experience help to make our league competitive and will hopefully inspire those inexperienced players setting out on their table tennis journey.
I hope you will all join me in thanking the many hard working officers, committee members and club secretaries who work tirelessly in the background to ensure our League operates seamlessly and continues to be one of the most competitive in the region.
Finally, please remember to always play in the game in the right spirit, respect your opponent, be competitive, humble in victory, gracious in defeat and set the example to the younger players and offer them advice and support - remember we were just like they were when we set off on our table tennis journey.
Yours in sport
Chris (Chairman) - 11.09.2017
