Here is the first selection of archive photos. I must thank Peter Osborne who let me pop over to his bungalow and go through all his old photos and newspaper articles. I have taken copies and they will start off this archive section. The photos will not be in year order, Peter also requested that this 'photo album' did not finish up as a Peter Osborne photo album, but Peter has been around for a long time in the table tennis sport and has won many awards and of course he is the first person so far that has given me the chance to start off this photo gallery. So thanks Peter but you will appear a few times!
Please feel free to contact me if I am wrong with any of the text and also if you can fill in any gaps etc, plus of course if you have any old photos I could use for this feature.
You can contact me via the contact page.
