Vale Gary Haberl

For those who did not receive notification of Gary's passing from TTA , I have pasted it below. It was only in 2018 that Gary last played in the NSW Veterans Closed Championships winning the 0/40 Mens Singles beating Peter Krigovsky in the final. Michael Bowrey put an end to his 0/50 Mens campaign in the semi-finals. May he rest in peace.

Gary Haberl, 54, one of the greatest ever players from NSW and Australia, passed away on 18 November 2019. Gary had been unwell in recent times.

On the court, Haberl was a tenacious fighter and a fierce competitor who hated losing, he’d do everything in his power to ensure he got the ball back over the net. At the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games, Haberl became the first Australian male to represent Australia in table tennis. An attacking player, playing with anti rubber on one side and smooth rubber on the other, he was highly skilled in the art of twiddling his racket mid-point which caused his opponents no end of grief.

Throughout the 1980’s, Haberl won 10 National titles in individual events including four Men’s Singles crowns; he was also part of numerous NSW Men’s Team titles. On the international stage, Haberl recorded some marvellous victories including against top Japanese players and his Trans-Tasman battles with New Zealand rivals Barry Griffiths and Peter Jackson are still spoken fondly about by those fortunate enough to witness them.

Although Haberl retired from competing at the highest level at a relatively young age, his impact on table tennis in Australia was substantial. He was a highly respected competitor and will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Thank you for everything you did for table tennis. Rest in peace Gary.

Tom Boyd's 90th Birthday - Kiama TT Club

I was privileged to be invited to the Kiama Table tennis Club celebration of Tom Boyd’s 90th birthday.

It was obvious the esteem in which Tom is held as there were approximately sixty people present at the function with, I believe without exception, all were table tennis players.

Tom, along with his wife Joy, has been responsible for the setting up of the Kiama club and its ongoing success.

Tom has always been a player who does not like to highlight the success he has enjoyed in our game. As a consequence the Kiama players were extremely surprised to learn that he is a sixteen times Australian Veterans Table Tennis Champion.

He has competed in the Australian Veterans Championships almost every year from the inception of the event and in fact he and Joy were instrumental in ensuring the event commenced at all.

Perhaps the greatest thing about Tom is his dedication to our game, and in particular in Kiama where he is present at virtually all playing sessions and you can be assured that if any piece of equipment requires repair he will do it immediately.

Table Tennis is privileged to have players of the calibre of Tom involved in our game and we congratulate him on attaining the age of ninety and wish him many more birthday celebrations.

On Monday 4 November, 2019, 80 excited school students arrived at the Macquarie University Table Tennis venue to compete in the annual Hyundai Cup competition.

The competition, which is now in its 9th year, was the brainchild of the Federal Member for Bennelong, Mr John Alexander.

Mr Alexander, with the support of the Hyundai Corporation, arranged for every school in his electorate, whether public or private, to be provided with table tennis tables with one of the additional benefits being the annual Bennelong Cup competition.

The competition was split into Primary and Secondary Schools with Andrew Hill doing the organising of the Primary Sections where the majority of the students were to compete. Andrew has run this portion for the last two years and has received praise from all the teachers involved.

After the competition was played the Medals were presented to the following:
Primary Boys:  Gold to Eastwood Public School, Silver also to Eastwood and Bronze to Northcross Christian School and Epping Heights Public School
Primary Girls: where Gold went to Carlingford Public School, Silver to Eastwood Public School and Bronze to both St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School and Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School
Junior High School:  Gold to Carlingford High School, Silver to Ryde Secondary College and Bronze also to Carlingford High
Senior High School:  Gold to Carlingford High School , Silver also to Carlingford and Bronze to Ryde Secondary College

Table Tennis NSW wishes to thank Mr Alexander for his continued support of our game.
