Prize-giv­ing night is a great suc­cess

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
