Prize-giving night is a great success
There was great fun at the Wicklow Table Tennis prize-giving in the Jailer’s Rest in Wicklow town on Saturday night.
A total of 43 people from five different clubs attended the prize-giving. The five clubs – Arklow, Wicklow, Bray, Greystones and Wayside – have all been competing in various competitions over the past year. The relatively newly formed Wicklow club won the league and the cup in the second division, which was a great achievement.
Noeleen Redmond from the Wicklow town club said that the prize-giving is usually held in Bray but last year it was decided to move it to Wicklow.
‘It went really well and it was a very successful night. Everyone was really pleased with how it went. Eoin Whelan in the Jailer’s Rest really outdid himself.
‘ The whole evening was a big success and everyone was very complimentary about it.’
Noeleen said that there is a great interest in table tennis and said that the Wicklow club is always looking for new members. ‘ There is a big table tennis revival going on at the minute and all the clubs are seeing a great interest in it but are always open to new members.’
On Saturday night there were a host of prizes given out across various divisions and there were also individual prize winners as well, said Noeleen. She said that all the clubs had been delighted with the success of the evening.
The Wicklow Table Tennis club meet every Wednesday night in the Methodist Hall in Wicklow town at 7.30 p.m. and new members are welcome.
