Spalding and District Table Tennis League president Jean White had a successful trip to Spain for the World Veterans Championships.

Having been out of action for three months due to injury, she did not have any great expectations of winning a medal.

However, things went better than expected as she won the consolation singles and a bronze medal in the ladies doubles – going out to the eventual winners.

This was the biggest tournament so far with 4,600 players on 165 tables in one hall.
