Almost 100 children, aged between eight and ten, were taught various bat skills at Clowne Junior School in a Table Tennis Activity Day.

The day was a huge success with some of the young players having their first introduction to table tennis under the watchful eye of Table Tennis England Coach Mel Buxton.

Derbyshire has always been a strong county for table tennis with internationals and like Alan Cooke, Nicola Deaton and current England Number One Liam Pitchford. The photograph shows one of the groups who participated during the day with coach Mel Buxton.

The Chesterfield and District Table Tennis League committee are concerned about the number of players who have not paid their affiliation fees to Table Tennis England.
