Please note - this news article was published more than five years ago. Some of the information contained may no longer be correct.

Four new photos, two from Lynda Reid and two from Sandra Deaton, with grateful thanks ladies. Lynda is in the first photograph of the National Coaching Scheme at Lilleshall taken In September 1958 and also in the second picture of the News of the World Coaching Scheme Finals, Skegness, September 1957. The two from Sandra include images of Colin Deaton who as well as being a junior international was also a coach at Butlins.

The Butlins Holiday Camps were such a hotbed of table tennis activity and production of new talent with over 50 internationals either starting or being developed through the News of the World scheme. There is a real dearth of photos or artefacts so if you have anything, photos or memorabilia, I would love to hear from you and can be contacted on [email protected]
