League needing a home

Colac Table Tennis Association’s Graham Kenneady has fears for the future of the sport in Colac if the club is forced to move from its venue of the past 24 years at the Guide Hall. .

Table tennis officials are bracing for the possibility of life without a home for the sport in Colac.

The association could be forced out of its facility of the past 24 years at the old Guide Hall, with the Colac venue on the market for auction on December 8.

Colac Table Tennis Association president Graham Kenneady, who has been involved in the sport in Colac since 1961, said the club feared for its future after struggling to find a replacement for the Guide Hall.

Table tennis officials believe the association has been active since the 1940s and currently has “between 55 and 65 members”, producing two junior state representatives in Eric Baltan and Calden Lyons in recent years.

“I’m pretty sure it’ll have to happen unless somebody that buys the hall will allow us to be users of it,” Mr Kenneady said ahead of the sale.
