Seniors Week and Table Tennis

 

The annual NSW Seniors Week commenced with Table Tennis featuring at the Seniors Expo in Darling Harbour.

This is the second year in which our sport has been featured at the Expo with the highlight for me being the number of seniors who advised us they were table tennis players and the variety of venues in which they played our sport.

We were then also active with two specific activities coming to mind.

The Illawarra Association, who have previously concentrated on running an internal competition, gained a small grant from the government to run a seniors come and try day.

The interest shown in the day has encouraged them to endeavour to set up an Active Seniors Club to cater for this growing group of players.

Cumberland Council also arranged a sporting expo which featured table tennis, walking netball and walking football.

The week of the Expo was particularly hot and the air conditioned Berala Community Centre was the venue for us. Unfortunately the other sports, being outdoors, were not as lucky with heat calling play off.

The table tennis was organised by the Cumberland Council, but run by Table Tennis NSW, as a round robin event comprising 8 women and 8 men.

The day was enjoyed immensely by the competitors a number of whom are now looking to further their involvement in our game

We look forward to once again joining with Cumberland Council in 2020 to celebrate the next Seniors week

Thank You National Veterans Committee

 

The recent advent of the National Advisory Panel is a big step forward for TTA as it ensures all sections of the table tennis community (Veterans, Para, Senior & Youth, Juniors) have a direct link to the TTA Board. We aim to achieve a more consistent approach across all sections within our community, which will be beneficial for the ongoing development of each area of our game. A primary reason for establishing the National Advisory Panel was due to the success of the National Veterans Committee over more than 20 years – put simply, when dedicated and passionate people come together for the betterment of the sport, positive results invariably occur.

Given that Veterans is now part of the National Advisory Panel, a standalone National Veterans Committee is no longer in place. Rather than seeing this as a loss, the Veterans community and everyone who served on the National Veterans Committee should feel proud that their successes will now enable all areas of the sport to experience the same. Importantly, all the key Veterans functions previously undertaken by the National Veterans Committee have been carried over to the National Advisory Panel.

TTA wishes to take the opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to the National Veterans Committee since its inception in 1995. Ken Cole undoubtedly led the charge, serving 17 years as Chair and another 4 years as Committee Member. Glenys Joliffe OAM (19 years), Tony Herbert (13 years) and Prisca Rosario (11 years) also served with distinction as long-standing Committee Members. Cynthia Langley OAM (3 years) and Mike Butcher (4 years) are the two other people who had the honour of serving as Chair. Others who dedicated their time as Committee Members include Margaret Walker (Gabbedy), Irwin Parker, Paul Pinkewich, Bill Sheehan, Belgin Bennett, Jennifer Aduckiewicz and John Sherriff.

TTA appreciates the countless hours of service provided by everyone who sat on the National Veterans Committee and to all those who supported it along the way. We’re looking forward to seeing Veterans continuing to evolve and develop and remaining a pivotal part of the table tennis community through the work of the National Advisory Panel.

A full list of those who served on the National Veterans Committee are:
