My mother, Enid Dinnis was very good at Table Tennis. A lot better than I realised actually. Recently I’ve been going through boxes, bags and drawers full of newspaper cuttings and memories and I came across a box full of cups, shields and medals that had been won playing Table Tennis. I had expected them all to belong to my father, but the majority of them were in fact won by my mother.
I have added images of them below, there is a newspaper clipping about Enid taking part in the ladies doubles in either 1951-52 or 1952-53. The two pictures of the medals are from those years, she reached the finals of the ladies doubles in both of those years. The shield is from 1952-53 when Enid was a women’s singles finalist in the Brighton & District Table Tennis League. The smaller cup is from 1949-50 when Enid won the Ladies Singles Friends Centre Table Tennis Club competition. And the larger cup is from the following year 1950-51 in the same competition when Enid reached the final of the Ladies Singles.
