Our Association has been playing table tennis in the eastern suburbs since the mid- 1940’s when it began as Camberwell Churches. In the sixties its name changed to Eastern Suburban Churches, and then in the late seventies became Eastern Suburbs and Churches Table Tennis Association, which has continued until today. At different times over the years we have had teams from municipal councils, factories, football clubs, Australian Road Research Board and other community groups.
Other clubs since 2000 include: High Street Road, Highwaymen, Mitcham Baptist, MCBC, Knoxfield, Camberwood, Blackburn South, Chadstone, Burwood, Box Hill Friendship, CAV.
Victorian Government’s Community Sport & Recreation Awards 2015
These awards recognize the valuable contribution and hard work of clubs, coaches, officials and volunteers of allsports in Victoria.
Don Cheyne was a finalist in the ‘Service to Sport and Recreation’ category.
Don has voluntarily run Monday night recreational table tennis sessions for about 45 years in his club. He raised funds along the way to buy tables, equipment and provide venue hire to reduce the costs for the club’s members. He is also an experienced coach who coached at all levels within the club. He also ran the A1 grade competition for 20 years. His late wife Pat, was also a valued member of the club, who alongside Don at all times, helped with supper arrangements, equipment set up and general maintenance of the club.
Don is a great example of a passionate volunteer of our sport, and if we had more people like Don, our sport will experience stronger growth and higher participation across the board. Table tennis Victoria congratulates Don, his family and his club for his wonderful contribution to table tennis.
