From David Bartlett.

The League is sad to announce the passing of Roger Yates on Sunday 3rd February. Roger was the founder and Chairman of Little Horwood Table Tennis Club developing a club that ended up with four teams playing in the League. Roger fought illness for many years but continued to play table tennis and organise his club throughout this period and you often wondered if it was table tennis that kept him going during this time.  I recall the time I had to contact him about a table tennis matter at work to be told that he was in a meeting. When I mentioned it was to do with table tennis his secretary’s immediate response was that if it was about table tennis she would interrupt him as she transferred my call to him.
As soon as we are aware of the funeral arrangements we will post them on the website.
