Marilyn Knight Visits STTTA Centre

It was good to see Marilyn Knight at the Kingston centre recently. Marilyn was a State Representative in the 1970's.

New plastic balls breaking early

Let's hope the production technology for plastic balls improves over time as they appear to break easily at present. The coming cold weather will no help. I hear that Nittaku and Butterfly are not supplying celluloid balls.

Old 'Mercury' Newspaper articles

If you go to this link you will be able to read articles on Tasmanian Table Tennis going back many years. Very interesting to read. At one stage a player in Hobart interrupted his matches to nick over to the RHH to perform an appendectomy, then return to continue playing. CLICK ON THIS LINK TO READ.

They had 240 entries for the Southern Open in 1953.

Doug McLean with President, Tamasu Co.,Ltd, Shunsaku Yamada - June 2007




Here are a few player quotes from past:

  1. I wasted my ability on the unworthy.

  2. Right you scrubbers, off the tables.

  3. Why can't I get a donkey the first round like the rest of you.

  4. If I hadn't lost that round I would have beaten you.

  5. I went asleep at the wheel.

  6. If there were two of me we could have won that doubles.

  7. My grandmother can play better than you
