Anti Sectarianism Ambassadors
We have a group of anti-sectarianism ambassadors ranging from 12 to 60 year old, who are all top nationally ranked players and compete all over the UK. They are influential people who continually raise awareness of sectarianism & the problems it is associated with by networking, publicity and support.
Pictured are our 7 anti sectarianism ambassadors Chris Main, Richard Main, Chris Barclay, Andy Macpherson, Jill Taylor, Bruce McLellan and Martin Johnson who have all worked hard on delivery this project over the past 2 years. The team have been into schools to educate pupils about sectarianism, they have set up new table tennis classes in non denominational and catholic schools and ran competitions so the pupils from different schools can compete as a team together.
Table Tennis in the UK and especially Scotland is a relatively small community where the vast majority of clubs, players and officials are friends and are always aware of what other table tennis clubs are achieving & accomplishing. We decided to make Voluntary Action Fund our main shirt sponsor for our National League, British League & West of Scotland Junior League teams.
