He said: “Table tennis is a great way of keeping fit and also enjoying some sporting activity and can be played all year round from ages ranging from five to 85 and some of the top players in the leagues are female so don’t let the all male group put you off if you want to come along.” The team plays at Lundin Sports Club and have a general practice night on Monday nights from 7.30 to 9.00 pm.
