Senior coach Doug Farquharson was unable to attend the match, but was delighted to learn of their achievement saying he was very proud of them as they have all worked hard during their varied coaching sessions here in Rothienorman , Turriff and Aberdeen Sports Village.

Doug was instrumental in starting up the club 3 years ago with only 2 players at the time.

Now the club caters for ages from 10 to 76 years.

Recently the club held a Seniors Table Tennis Social and Soup and Sweet with players arriving from Aberdeen, Fyvie , Turriff and the Moray area and the few hours were most enjoyable .
