We salute you Les and Terry...

" Laura, I have the most wonderful story i'd like you to shoot..."

"Go on...."

At the mild young age of 83 and 91 Les and Terry firmly claim their titles as the British Over 80's Ping Pong champions. These fellas handle a bat like a glove and as I travelled to Manchester I found it hard not to get excited about meeting them.

The location.. a men’s bowling club.. tick.. ( although a great location reinforced pressure to do it justice - in the words of Hin Chau..a mirage of a location)

The writer.. Sally Williams ..big tick and of course Cyril loving Stu Harper by my side.

This was such a fun assignment and there were challenging moments..and Terry's heart did play up a little.. but they were true legends..
