As a lad,I played the noble game,practiced till good enough to make junior county team....and Newbury seniors.....some trophies picked up along the way,Sterling Cables Open....Thatcham ,Kennet school tourneys...and at that time, 8 leagues of 12 teams! Now,it is just 3 leagues,and not a single club from Newbury to be seen! Thatcham has still kept the faith,with several teams,young and not so young! Wessex social club was a multi team club,but Waitrose crushed them,and they dropped the game to accommodate golf. All gone,now...Lloyds...Newbury Community Centre...Plentys...GPO....Guildhall....Methodist church....Boys Club....and it's still called  NEWBURY ( and district) TABLETENNIS LEAGUE.
