The funeral of table tennis stalwart Tony Chatwin will take place at Markeaton Crematorium in Derby on Thursday May 10.

The service is at noon, and afterwards at Horsley Golf Club. Tony’s family have asked for donations to the heart failure unit at Royal Hospital Derby in lieu of flowers.

Tony, one of the longest serving and most respected officials and administrators in the sport, passed away earlier this month at the age of 84 after a long illness.
