Welcome to Kidlington Forum Table Tennis Club, a premier club with purpose-built facilities, situated 5 miles north of Oxford. All are welcome to come along to one of our open practice sessions.
It is with regret that I must inform you that after a long illness Brian Rowles passed away in January. Until recently Brian was an active member of the club. For many years, Brian played for the club for numerous seasons and took delight in helping our junior players develop. He was well known for playing away from the table with his high spin shots.
As a club we will be making a donation to to his chosen charity.
Brian will be cremated at 2.00pm on Monday February 12th at the Oxford Crematorium.
Our most sincere condolences go to his wife Nancy and his family.

Vassilis Karatzios was a recent winner of a "Club Volunteer of the Year" award from Table Tennis England. He was then automatically nominated for the Regional Award along with other Club Volunteer winners in the Southern Region. Vass has been successful in that category too.
He was awarded his Regional Winner's trophy by Karl Bushell at Forum Club on Thursday evening. Vass is a worthy winner on both the Club and Regional awards. Without his support opening the club on Thursday and Sundays, many players would not be able to enjoy the excellent facilities of the Forum club. As a Regional Winner is now considered for a National Award.
Well done Vass!
