The Jimmy O’Hara Memorial Cup Open Singles and Consolation Event will take place on Saturday 20th April 2024.
It will be hosted by Ballymena TT Club in Ballymena Academy Gym, 89 Galgorm Road, Ballymena BT42 1AJ
Many of you will have known Jimmy O’Hara who sadly died last year at the age of 95. Jimmy played for Ireland in the 1940s and 1950s and in his later years he represented Ballymena Table Tennis Club with distinction as both player and Club President. Jimmy was the welcoming face at our club with the friendly handshake for all visitors. He was a wonderful ambassador for table tennis – a fact awknowledged by Table Tennis Ireland in 2013 when they awarded him a glass plaque for his services to table tennis. But most of all he was a faithful friend who is sadly missed at the Ballymena club.
We aim to run this tournament each year to benefit local Charities with all proceeds from this, the inaugural event, going to help those suffering from Motor Neurone Disease.
