As you can tell by my rosy cheeks in the pictures, this event was very warmly hosted and reignited faded glories from school days. My partner discovered a hidden talent for the ping-pong too! Alot of laughs & very well organised by Dr Wang and the club’s organisers. Great chatting with the other hopefuls too. There are also some exhibition level players here that are jaw dropping to see in action with tutorials to boot. Just do it!
