A new table tennis club is forming in Alton.
Anyone interested in joining should attend the first organizational meeting for the club at 7 p.m. on Aug. 11 at Main Street United Methodist Church located at 1400 Main St. in Alton.
The tentative club name is the Southwestern Illinois Table Tennis Club (SWITTC). People interested and wanting more information can email email@example.com or call John Higdon at (618) 540-0145. People of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
The league is also looking for a place to call home. They would meet once or twice a week in the evening for a few hours. The location would need a place to store the tables. Any church or other possible location interested in accommodating the club is urged to contact Higdon.
Also, anyone who would be interested in donating tables that are in good condition that are just taking up space please contact Higdon via email or telephone.
