Table tennis ‘in chaos’
TABLE TENNIS in this country is in limbo and being held to ransom by people who should know better.
So says former vice-president of the Barbados Table Tennis Association (BTTA), John Pilgrim, who thinks the sport is in chaos. He said the time had come for the National Sports Council and the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) to intervene and provide administrative guidance.
“We are just playing for time and hoping for the best to happen. For the first time in the history of table tennis in Barbados, we are being held to ransom by a set of wrong-headed people who don’t seem to understand that sport is not about administrators, it is about players,” he said.
Pilgrim said he was disappointed that chairman of the interim committee, Ray Jackman, has waited so long to attempt constitutional change. (MK)
