Dennis Rhodes, of the Woodlands Club, has recently been made a Vice President of the Sussex Table Tennis Association in recognition of his many years of service to the sport in the county. This goes with the Maurice Goldstein Merit Award which he received in 1996. The presentation of the certificate was made by Peter Wales, President of our league, at a packed Woodlands Memorial Hall.
Dennis, who has now turned ninety, has played table tennis for seventy-seven years. He started in West Bromwich before moving to Littlehampton in the 1960s. Before joining the Woodlands Club, Dennis played in the South West Sussex League where he was President for many years.
