Bayswater disbanded

From Ian:
It is with regret that I have to inform you that the Bayswater Church of Christ Table Tennis club is to be disbanded as a result of a decline in membership.
We have enjoyed a long association with ES&CTTA over a period of some 20 years and there have been many memorable matches played between various teams.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavours with the Association.
Thank you to the Association for providing an enjoyable playing environment for our members. It has been most appreciated.
Ian Albury
