Fleckney Spinners Table Tennis Club

It’s been ‘spring growth’ for the club with club members enjoying their outings with the Leicester League.

Table Tennis coaching available

Every two weeks, eight to ten people are progressing their TT technique thanks to our new club coach, Andy Wright. He holds a session on alternate Saturday mornings. The next are on 5 and 19 March, 2, 16 and 30 April. Booking is required.

Good Match Results

The Spinners showing this term surpassed their success last term. Mike Wilson, Mike Miles and Steve Reeves stuck it out to hold Knighton Parks’ 10th team to a draw. And, in another tight match, Jan Green, Jan Nicks and Dillon Kearney stuck at it to draw with Winstanley Wizards’ 5th. Meantime, our second team beat Regent Sports’3rd , seven to three, and fourteen year old newcomer, Jacob Hall, won all three of his matches to gain his team a point against Desford Village 4th supporting the two Jans. Andy Haddon, Ian Prentice and Callum Harbidge were unlucky against Winstanley Wizards’ 6th team (three members of the Seeds family). Our first team (James Robertson, Nick Wyche and Rob Bateman) scored a great six/four victory against Electricity’s 3rd.

The club is going from strength to strength with a new junior player, Isaac Wong, fourteen years old, and newcomer Cristiane Bassa joining us (thank you Kibworth & District Chronicle).

There will be club nights on Wednesday 30 March and other Mondays or Wednesdays (contact us for details). The club, started in May 2019 with six members, now boasts 30 players, 19 of whom play in the Leicester League and some of whom come to the open session at Fleckney Sports Centre on Thursday mornings. All are welcome. We are optimistic about the rest of 2022 when we hope to have another new TT table and a fresh supply of polo shirts emblazoned with the Spinners logo.

If you would like to watch matches and/or club nights and/or join for only £5 a year then do come along to the Sports Centre on a Monday or Wednesday evening from 7.15- 9.30pm.
