Table Tennis – Gordon Dinnis’ newspaper clippings

table tennis 4

I found some newspaper clippings my dad had kept, he hadn’t kept the dates with most of them so I just have to guess at the order of them.  This first one mentions that he was playing for The Alliance A team in Division 1.  It writes that ‘Gordon Dinnis … won everything in sight for his club to enable them to depart as 6-4 winners over Brighton B L B.’

In the above cutting it says ‘Gordon Dinnis, one of the few local players with a pen-holder style, called up on all his experience to win three games against Greys B.’  I have included a picture of the ‘penhold grip’ for those not familiar with it.

The two cuttings above tell how ‘Gordon Dinnis again saved Alliance A by recording yet another treble.’  and ‘a treble from Gordon Dinnis’.

    Have you inherited the table tennis gene?

    • Sadly no, the table tennis gene passed me by. I’m not in the least bit sporty! However my cousin and her daughter are very good table tennis players, I’ll have to see if she will write about their achievements for me 🙂
