The League is now entering its 69th year and its fourth season at The Wisbech Table Tennis Club. I would firstly like to welcome back our established players as well as a few new players. I would also like to thank all those of you who have worked so hard in in the last year carrying out the various improvements to the conditions at the Club at Pinnacle House and make it the great success that it is.
We have 46 registered players this season playing from nine teams. We also now have 83 Associate members now playing on Wednesdays, a few of whom from last year have become registered players for this season. Support for the Wisbech Club Centre has grown and we now run a Summer League with seven teams. We now have increased the number of teams playing from the Club to twelve and welcome back those players from the Kings Lynn and March Leagues. All the major improvements at the Club have now been completed. I am sure that you will find it more enjoyable and just as competitive as last season.
As in the past each team will play each other, home and away, in the League programme. The Challenge Cup and the Parker Shield will again be played as knockout competitions. The Handicap Sleight Doubles will be played on a group basis, each pairing will be handicapped, which hopefully will give each team a more equal chance of success. The draws for all three events have already been made and are included in the fixtures time table. The matches should take place in the scheduled week on the league home night detailed in your handbook.
Again, I would like to thank, all those of you who have assisted the Association last season and I hope for your most valued and continued support again this season.
Please remember that this handbook serves as a registration card, which you should be able to produce at the request of the opposition.
