A&P keeps sport alive at Falmouth Docks

A new sponsorship deal between A&P Falmouth and Falmouth Docks Table Tennis Club will allow young players at the Club to compete in a national league.

The club has nearly 200 members, ranging from top level County players to young beginners and fun players from the community, but has never been able to enter the national leagues due to the expensive entry fees and equipment required.

Thanks to the new sponsorship the club has been able to enter two teams into the Junior British Leagues for the 2012/13. The sponsorship money will cover the entry fees to the league, a new kit for both teams, and professional standard practice nets.

The Falmouth Docks Table Tennis Club, which trains at Penryn College, has high hopes for its young players. One of the coaches who will be helping the young teams prepare for the National Leagues is Dennis Williams, the only surviving member of the original Falmouth Docks team formed in 1949.

Dennis said: “For some time now the club has wanted to enter some of its talented players into the Junior British League, which will help them to further progress their sporting careers and allow them to compete against some of the leading young players in the country. There is also a strong desire to see the famous old name of Falmouth Docks feature in the British League, so I am delighted that A&P Falmouth is able to provide the sponsorship we need to make it happen.”
