Table Tennis

Table Tennis

Little or nothing has been heard of the Table Tennis Club in Salient this year, However, the club is far from inactive. At present it has about thirty very enthusiastic members and more are coming along each week. Club evenings are held every Monday and the Gym. is available every lunch hour between 12 and 2. In order to give still more people an opportunity to play the club is buying another table in the near future.

Last year the club entered two teams in the Wellington Table Tennis Association's grade championships—one in C and one in D grade. Both teams won their grade championships and in the finals the C team narrowly defeated Railways by 7 games to 5, while the D team won from A.N.A. by 14 games to 6.

Doug. Yen, who was club secretary last year, should be specially complimented on the way he ran the club and handled the teams. His presence at all the important matches seemed to have a marked effect on the morale of our boys. We hope he is organising table tennis at Massey College in the same way. Good luck, Doug.

This year the club has entered four teams in the grade championships—one B, one C, and two D grade teams. In their first game the B team defeated Area 5 "A" by 9 games to 3 and the C team beat St. Anthony's 10-2. Carry on, folks!
