Tynedale League

TYNEDALE TABLE TENNIS LEAGUE

Tynedale is a small but friendly table tennis league with opportunities to play at all levels at locations across rural West Northumberland.  There are also social/recreational nights at several local clubs.  Everyone is welcome, juniors and seniors, beginners to county ranked players, aged from 7 to 107.

This year six teams, from clubs in Humshaugh, Matfen, Newton, Sinderhope and Whitley Chapel, are challenging for the league title.  There is also a handicap cup played during the season and, if there is sufficient demand, the annual league tournament may be resurrected this year.  Anyone who lives or works in the former district of Tynedale is eligible to play for a team in the Tynedale League.

Contact Linda Pinkham, 01434 601873 or Robert Philipson 01434 685266 or e-mail:  [email protected] if you would like more information about the league.

Some settlements in Tynedale are not currently represented and so we would love to hear from anyone prepared to set up a club at a suitable venue, particularly if you come from Prudhoe, Wylam, Haltwhistle, Bardon Mill, Bellingham, Stocksfield or central Hexham.
