BUNDABERG CLOSED CHAMPIONSHIPS


This year’s Bundaberg Closed Championships will be held from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 September. All current club members, including Social and Life Members, are eligible to play.


The tournament will start on Friday afternoon with the Junior Graded events for players who have played at least one season of Junior fixtures this year or are playing this season. On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a wide range of events for all grades and ages. Entry forms will be available by the end of this week – at the canteen, via email, and from the website by clicking this link: Bundaberg Closed Entry Form


Each event costs $6.00 to enter but there is a maximum entry fee of $25.00, so you can enter as many events as you are able for that amount. This is always a great weekend so get involved and play in some events over that weekend.



Queensland Veterans Championships 2017


The QLD Veterans Championships were held in Bundaberg from 19-23 July.


Bundaberg players had plenty to celebrate at the conclusion of the 2017 Queensland Veterans Table Tennis Championships which ended on Sunday night (23 July) at the Bundaberg Table Tennis Centre. Eleven of the twenty local players who competed won medals with Michele Brockhurst the most successful, claiming two gold and a silver. She won the Over 30 Women’s Singles and the Over 30 Women’s Doubles with Kate Juillerat, as well as silver in the Over 30 Mixed Doubles. Juillerat, in addition to her Over 30 Women’s gold medal, won three bronze medals – in the Over 30 Women’s Singles and Mixed Doubles, and in the Para TT Singles. Bundaberg made a clean sweep in that event, gold going to Jim Buttling and silver to Nev Newitt in a very closely fought competition. Nev Newitt also won another silver medal in the Over 75 Men’s Singles and bronze in the Over 70 Men’s Doubles.


Pat Rodgers was another to win three medals – silver in the Over 75 Women’s Singles, and bronze in the Over 70 Mixed Doubles and the Over 70 Women’s Teams. Jim Buttling added to his gold with bronze in the Over 60 Mixed Doubles.


Peter Spratley and Jeff Loughran each won bronze for reaching the semi-finals of the Over 60 Men’s Singles after superb wins over highly-seeded opponents. Spratley also won bronze in the Over 60 Men’s Doubles with Hervey Bay player, George Tselepi. Pieter Poldervaart and Brian Fairbrother shared bronze in the Over 70 Men’s Doubles, while Dave Delpratt won bronze as a member of the President’s team in the Over 60 Men’s team event.


Following the presentations, Michele Brockhurst, Jeff Loughran, Nev Newitt and Pat Rodgers were named in Queensland “A” teams to compete at the Australian Veterans Championships which will be held in Perth in October. Brian Fairbrother was named in a “B” team while Bruce Downs will be nominated for a President’s team. This is easily the most Bundaberg players to be selected for a Queensland Veterans team for many years.
