Leading employee research consultancy, The Survey Initiative, which are based in Wix, near Manningtree are sponsoring next year’s event and Peter White, Chairman, Clacton and District Table Tennis League, is delighted. He says: “We’re reliant upon the support of businesses in the community to run our annual championship and we’re very pleased that The Survey Initiative has decided to sponsor the 2020 event.”
The Clacton Closed Table Tennis Championships will take place in April next year and will see league members competing for a series of singles, doubles, juniors and veterans’ titles. The league includes players from clubs in Clacton, Walton and Lawford.
Gary Cattermole, Director, The Survey Initiative, is keen to support sport in the community. He says: “Taking part in sport is great for your wellbeing and work life balance. Table tennis is a very sociable sport which can be enjoyed by all and it is ideal to improve your physical and mental health.”
He continued: “ At The Survey Initiative we help organisations create healthy and productive working environments for their employees. Our business has grown rapidly over the past few years and we’re keen to share our success with the local community, that’s why we’re so pleased to be supporting these championships.”
