TABLE TENNIS: Stalwart Hughes dies at 79
7:00am Saturday 4th January 2014 in Sport
AUBREY Hughes, Oxfordshire’s ‘Mr Table Tennis’, died on Christmas Day, aged 79.
The founder of Kidlington Forum TTC in 1971, he was president, treasurer, vice-chairman and sports council representative for the Oxford & District Association.
A national councillor for Oxfordshire and an active committee member, his lifetime of service was recognised with two awards.
He was Cherwell & District Council’s ‘unsung hero’ in 2011 and won the ETTA merit award for outstanding contribution to table tennis in 2008.
Oxfordshire captain Karl Bushell said: “There is no doubt that Aubrey has been the leading person in developing table tennis in Oxfordshire over the past 40 years.”
