Club Members Practising Their Sport

Finally Andy took part in a training session to introduce him to table tennis, apologies in advance for the background “ping-pong” noise:

Thanks to Matt and everyone at Bishop Auckland Table Tennis Club for letting Andy & Paul interrupt their training session.  And as Matt has just said, if you are interested in going along to play, their training sessions are every Friday at 7:30 at Bishop Barrington school, in the sports hall.
