Japanese Interest in the Over 50's

On Thursday 14th July we had a visit from a lady called Yumi Hasegawa. Yumi is a writer of magazine articles and she has been commissioned by a Japanese magazine called ‘Tsuru To Hana’ to do a piece on table tennis and it’s benefits for older people.

She has chosen the Ellenborough over 50’s as ideal subject matter for her article and just after 10 o’clock she arrived with her 2 assistants.

Several of our members who are over 70 were interviewed and numerous photos were taken of us in action in the playing hall.

The magazine article will be published in Japan later on this year and she will be sending us a copy translated into English (thank goodness for that. My conversational Japanese is a bit rusty).

Well it seems that the fame of the Ellenborough Table Tennis Club is spreading across the globe and it will be interesting to hear what she has to say about our sprightly over 50’s.

Many thanks to all of our members who turned up as I know Yumi was very impressed with the large turn out we had on that morning.
