NHS Table Tennis Championships 2019

Well done to Mark Walpole, Data Officer for NECS, who took part in the NHS Table Tennis Championships 2019 earlier this month.

Mark travelled to Derby to the Draycott Table Tennis Centre on Sunday 15th September to play against NHS colleagues from organisations across the country.

Mark played well and won 5 out of his 6 group matches to make it to the quarter finals.

Following the individual competition, this year’s event saw the introduction of an Open Doubles competition where Mark and his partner were runners up overall.

Mark said, “Partners for the doubles were picked randomly so I didn’t know my partner before the day. We took out a really strong pairing in the first round and ended up as runners up overall.  I’ve also been doing the 1 million steps for diabetes challenge which runs until the end of September. I’ve reached my target and I’m now approaching 1.1 million steps.”

Well done Mark!
