Sad news of the passing of Mike Holloway a Wandsworth League Legend

Over Christmas we had the sad news of the death of Mike Holloway who was a true legend of the league for over 50 years. Mike is the father of Steve and Paul Holloway and ran the all-conquering Earlsfield teams that totally dominated the league for many years, in recent times he has run the South Mitcham Table Tennis Club. A talented player himself boasting many wins over England ranked players such Brian Wright, Mike was always amongst the top players in the 1st division. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him our thoughts and best wishes are with his wife Jill and all the family.
