Dear Member Leagues and Associations,

Help shape the future of our County's Table Tennis

It has been a tough time for the committee of late losing both our President Brian Lamerton and Chairman Dave Turner and with some HTTA Officers already undertaking more than one role, we are looking for some extra pairs of hands to enable the successful delivery of the County's Table Tennis Association commitment for Hampshire.

We are already managing County teams in the National County Championships covering Cadets, Juniors, Seniors, Over 60s, and 3 Veterans teams. We also run County Closed Championships, and a County League for Seniors and Veterans and Juniors/Cadet whenever we have the call for it, and provide support for our member Leagues and Associations as and when they need it.

The committee only meets around six times in the year and we desperately need help with League Administration. We would really appreciate your support at those meetings from at least two representative's from each of our 8 member Leagues which in turn supports 50+ Clubs and over 2500 members, and we are keen to mould the County's administration in the way our member Leagues want us to.

We must now also look to select a President, Chairman, Secretary and additional Committee members and would appreciate if those member Leagues who have not been able to provide representatives on a regular basis could seek players or ex-players to represent their interests at our meetings and let me have some names and contact details please. I would then propose to hold an Extraordinary General Meeting to get the County Association back on track.

If you are able to spare some time to lend a hand, know someone that can or if you have any questions, please get in touch. Could I also ask if this request could be put on your Websites to seek representation from your League please? I look forward to hearing from every Town Secretary and thank you in anticipation of offers of help.
