Local business Nexus is serving up some smashing sponsorship with their support of Stonehaven Table Tennis Club.

The community sports club has expressed its thanks to the North-east surface treatment specialists for the financial boost.

Club coach Dave Lomax said: “We’re very grateful for this generous investment that will let our club grow by funding our running costs as well as allowing us to buy more equipment and coach volunteers.

“We’re led by volunteers and this will help us extend our offering and grow the sport for the enjoyment of all ages and abilities in and around Stonehaven

“We’re particularly grateful to managing director Ronnie Watt for his time and keen interest in supporting our club.”

Stonehaven Table Tennis Club runs weekly sessions in Fetteresso Church Hall throughout the winter between September and May, which are open to adult players regardless of age or ability. They also have three teams in the Aberdeen and District Table Tennis Association (ADTTA) – the Stonehaven Fireballs.

In addition, they run specialist classes for people with Parkinson’s Disease and similar conditions, as well as building links with young players through Active Schools and Mackie Academy.

Nexus managing director Ronnie Watt said: “We are delighted to be able to make a difference by supporting such a worthwhile local organisation.

“It’s a fun sport and the club goes a long way in making it widely accessible throughout the community.”
