Weymouth & District Table Tennis League





Steve Rook

Steve Rook


It was with a huge sense of shock and sadness that we learnt of the passing of Steve Rook after a very short illness. Steve had been a playing member of the league for almost 30 years and also served as treasurer for 19 years carrying out his duties in a quiet and efficient way; he then naturally took on the role of auditor. Together with Paul Carter he saw the league through some difficult years which has enabled it to flourish in recent times. Born in Pontefract he certainly upheld the never-give-in attitude of his native Yorkshire as he was always difficult to beat - even when his opponent held match point. He was always gracious in defeat and modest in victory and he set a great example to up and coming players on how the game should be played. There is no doubt he is going to be greatly missed, not only by his family, but also by all his friends in table tennis and other walks of life. We extend our sincere condolences and best wishes to all his family.
