MHA Swindon Live at Fitzwarren House
The Methodist Housing Association MHA 'Swindon Live at Home' Scheme will be holding a PING PONG in the Community at Fitzwarren Court, Swindon on Wednesday 25th September at 3pm till 4pm to involve Members of the Scheme and residents of Fitzwarren Court the pleasure and fun of playing ping pong.
People are invited to come along and join the 90 members and residents at Fitzwarren Court and bring some fun, demonstrating how all ages and abilities can enjoy a game of ping pong.
Scheme manager, Julie Dowie said: “Many of our members have experienced the game of table tennis and this opportunity is for 12 weeks with coaches to support and teach those who would like to relive those memories of playing.”
Development Officer for Sanford Table Tennis, Lee Bowen was delighted to accept the coaching proposition and feels that Club Coach Jack who coaches local schools students will provide interaction, skill support as well as engaging all participants on any level. Lee added that the event maybe attended by some Table Tennis England players or associates.
Red Nose Day
Sanford Table Tennis Club linked up with Sainsbury's at their Stratton store, to promote Red Nose Day, and their Operations Manager Dave challenged Players from Sanford TTC for a game, also various employees joined in too. Representatives from Sanford were the Development Officer Lee Bowen and Thomas Penfold player.
It was an excellent morning and we also had the local News reporter and a photographer who took some of the action of the event which is to be published shortly.
Not sure of the total amount raised for Red Nose day.It was good to get people from the Community playing the game.
Thank you for Sainsbury's making Sanford TTC welcome and also for the light refreshments. Well done everybody see you next year.
