Browne named several accomplished Table Tennis players who have emerged from the bowels of the Sion Hill community. Among them are Carrington, Verrol Jeffers, Cyril “Scorcher” Thomas, Glenford Prescott, Kirk Williams and Chadwick Carrington.

Browne revealed that Table Tennis will be an integral part of the All Day Sports Festival planned for Monday, March 14, at the said Sion Hill Village hard court.
