Get well quickly  old mate from everyone at Coburg ttc.

Trent is playing in the Invitational Mounties Tournament in Sydney.  With players from China, Philippines, Dubai, England ( the high ranked Baguley ) + top ranked Australians including Hemming Hu and Chris Yan, this is a quality fields chasing the $5000 up for the winner. In the Round Robin Trent has continued his good recent form + defeated a member of the Shanghai University team + won his group  to be now in on the round of 16.

Paul Watson  the Winner of the Handicap even though he started off scratch. Had losses on the way to Dib Mohammad and Brian Zammit but did enough to make it to the 1/4 finals. From there it was easy sailing  as he defeated Dib in the final. -then donated the $50 prize money on offer back to the club.

WINTER WORRIES

If you want a game of Table Tennis ? , now might be the time !
It seems our members wont come out in the cold, during this period when we are saying to council that the club is packed to the rafters.
Keenagers- today is the lowest we have had in years with less than 30 in the hall
We have been open every afternoon this week due to school holidays but with little response.
Week nights ?  Last week the Handicap had record numbers but come 8-30pm hardly anyone was in the hall

Last night Rafiq asked ‘ where is everyone as he feels he has not had a decent hit with many members for the past 3 weeks. 

Lets hope we see a few more members over this coming weekend

KEENAGER ANTICS

We know our players lose their memories when they enter the club. All they remember is who they beat or an edge against them 3 weeks ago at 7 all in the 5th etc etc, but they forget their losses quickly and more importantly forget about the things they leave behind.

Bats- I have 10 still uncollected- Drink bottles -we could build a house with the number left behind – towels, clothes shoes-the list goes on

Enter Edis a Keenager-  He came in with a bat, it was his new one as he had lost his old bat. Lim handed him his old bat that had been left laying around so Edis went to put it away then he realised he had now lost his new bat.  So his search started. An hour later he found his new bat  & went to put the old one he had been using away but now he had lost his bat cover.
His cover was found and all the while Tony Bell  was hiding his face. Last Tuesday he not only left his bat cover behind which we found, it contained an old bat. Later on we found his new bat so what did Tony use in Diamond Valley comp this week ?  A bat missing half a handle !

THE FACE OF COBURG – !

Every day for the past 2 weeks Mark F walks past the display sign on the corner of Mewlands & Murray rds. and all he finds in Taxi Tom’s mug shot -teeth and all. that was until today. And mark was smiling like a Cheshire Cat  . A new sign has been erected and the clubs Super stars are on show MAGGIE- LIAO  & the face of Coburg smack in the middle,  MARK.
