This week shows a trio of photographs from John Burtenshaw’s collection. John has held numerous table tennis positions at all levels as is the current Regional Chairman (South West) as well as the National Councillor for Avon.

The Butlin’s photographs of 1959 show how far back some of our most eminent members have been involved with table tennis. Thank you John for sharing these with us.
