What to do in these days of enforced inactivity? There is a limit to how many times you can walk around the block locally for your once a day period of exercise! And even the pleasure of going shopping is denied! But in these very strange days, the seemingly different worlds of the Pub Quiz, and table tennis seem to have collided into what I thought was a very good idea! Have you ever watched the BBC TV series a Question of Sport? In one of the rounds the panels are shown partial and obscure pictures of a sports star and asked to work out who that sportsperson is. Our guest photographer, Ray Hibbs, has applied the same idea to some past and present Bath Street Marine TTC players! Every one of these players has at some time featured on the club website and can easily be found through it. So here is the challenge, sit back and scroll through our website and see if you can identify these players from the pictures and clues provided? Good luck with Ray's Picture Quiz!
