It is with sadness that we have to report the death of Terry on 30th. December 2017.
Terry was for very many years a stalwart both of Wigan St. John's and the Wigan Table Tennis League which he served as a committee member as well as a player.
Congratulations to Hannah Burrows !
At the weekend she entered her first Grand Prix Tournament at Tipton - these are the next stage after leaving juniors and all the top players in the country enter.
She came runner up in the Band 4 ladies, losing to only 1 player all day.
Will all teams who go to play at Rainford Scout hut please note that the hut is in use by the Scouts until 7p.m.
The Scouts then clean the room before table tennis starts.
Table Tennis England have awarded our very own Owdmon (David Mawdesley) the prestigious award of Volunteer of the Year 2017 for his 57 years involvement in the Wigan & District TT Leagues which all started at Dovetail Youth Club at St Nathaniel's Platt Bridge.
