I am sorry to have to report the sad news of the death of Doug Young. Doug was involved in table tennis at local, national and international level for over 60 years and passed away on February 10.
Doug retired as Chairman of the Worcestershire County Table Tennis Association in 2016. He was also, at different times, Secretary, Chairman and President of the Worcester League, a National Councillor of the English Table Tennis Association, a National and International Umpire and a Referee of Commonwealth, European and World Championships. He also took charge, as Referee, of numerous English Senior National Championships.

Charities in dad’s memory: Ronald McDonald House Charities – they provide free ‘home from home’ accommodation to families with children in hospital and RSPB, because dad loved his garden birds and was a member of RSPB as he wanted to help nature.
For anyone who wishes to send a donation in memory of dad, they can send it to the funeral directors E J Gumery & Son, 68/70 Ombersley Road, WORCESTER WR3 7EU, and I believe they are happy to receive donations for up to a month after the funeral.
