Get in the game with West ExeThe origins of wiff-waff
The club was originally based in the gym at what was West Exe College and moved temporarily to St Luke's College in 2006 while West Exe was being rebuilt. The club returned to the sports hall of West Exe Technology College in September 2007 and is going from strength to strength.
The club has members ranging from seven to 70, is affiliated to the ETTA and the Exeter & District Table Tennis League.
A spokesman said: "The club prides itself on its informal and family-orientated feel, and boasts a host of junior members who started as beginners, and many of whom have gone on to play at county level. We are always looking for new members – casual or full time, young or older, novices or experienced."

TABLE tennis has been part of the Olympic Games since 1988, with singles and doubles events for men and women. China have traditionally dominated the sport, winning a total of 47 medals.
The game originated in England during the 1880s, where it was played as an after-dinner parlour game. Early racquets were often pieces of parchment stretched upon a frame. The sound led to its first names of wiff-waff and ping-pong.
