Club secretary David Miller said: “The mayor played in a doubles match and thoroughly enjoyed himself.

“We gave a demonstration of our new tables - these are easily opened by one person, as shown by Shirley Smith, one of our stalwart captains.”

Councillors Alan Osborn and Paul McCarthy played.

Paul, despite a badly injured wrist, played several games. Alan is a club member and plays for a team.

The Wymondham League's Senior Tournament was held last weekend.
