There are a couple of league's close by depending on where in Somerset you are as you do not say....

West wilts... Tabletennis365.com/westwilts

Bath...

There are others such as Bristol, Devizes, Salisbury, Swindon that I know of and maybe more not too far away.

I see you are also close to Taunton and Bridgewater which both have local leagues. I visit taunton occasionally to visit my grandparents and play at the club there :). Check out https://www.tabletennis365.com/Taunton/ for more info if you're wanting to play there.

Hi
I agree my old butterfly I bought used from a friend of my fathers was incredible and if it hadn't been lost in several house moves I wouldn't have dreamed of replacing it as I cannot imagine a modern playing anywhere like it

Hi Darren,

Have you sorted out a club yet? If not, PM me and I'll give you some contact details of people from the Somerset leagues that can point you in the right direction. You are probably closest to the Mendip league but there are also active leagues in Bridgwater, Yeovil and Taunton that would all welcome a returning player. Let me know if you want some contact details.

Hi Darren,

At Cleeve and Banwell you will find a gentlemen by the name of Mike Withyman. Mike was Somerset TT Chairman for many years and knows every person and club in the county. Have a chat with him about your plans and he can tell you exactly what your options are. From what I understand though, Cleeve is a very nice club so it could be the one you're looking for.
