VETTS COMEBACK SUCCESS FOR BRIAN
Brian Bickell’s wife Olga has kindly passed on details of Brian’s successes in the Vetts Nationals last weekend.
Brian has had a long struggle to get some strength back in his shoulder after nearly two years away from table tennis, but is now back playing in the Premier league for the B team, and did very well in his first Vetts (Veterans English Table Tennis Society) Tournament since his injury.
Brian made his comeback at the Vetts National Tournament at the K2 Leisure Centre, Crawley and made it through the the semi-finals of his class, narrowly losing to nationally ranked Number 1 player Ramesh Bhalla.
Brian joined with Vetts newcomer Norman Meaney in the doubles and they beat the established pairing of former World Gold champion Geoff Bax and Terry Wilson in the final. Brian has been asked by George Evans, a former world champion, to play doubles with him in the April Nationals. Watch this space!
