Open Day 2015

We held another Open Day on Saturday 5th September 2015, giving people the chance to come and have a go. Thanks very much for everyone who contributed to making this event a successful one - from those who helped promote it, people who helped on the day and to those who donated things for the tombola and cakes to sell.

The club room was set up so people could have a go, with club members playing with the visitors.

The Robot competition was set up in the Village Hall and attracted many people, the
winner being the person that got the most balls in the box in 1 minute. There was a competition for league players and one for non-league players. 
Stewart Jones managed 32 balls in the box in 1 minute, winning the league players competition. The winner of the non-league competition was Bill Carter, a junior who managed 30. 

Even Sheila Humble had a go against the robot!
The other competitions including a tombola and guess where the ball is, helped to raise funds which covered the cost of the event.
Nobody guessed where the ball was!
Here's the answer:


Money was also raised to fund buying 4 new bats for GARAS (Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers), as Ann and Pete went to give 12 14-16 year old boys a demonstration as they have a table tennis table at their centre in Barton Street. This is a safe place where they can come and socialise and learn English and get all sorts of advice.
