What a great memory.
Someone recently found this match of me playing against Taipei at Table Tennis. As far as I know, it’s the only video of me playing in my prime. Unfortunately, I did not play my best on this occasion, but this is a great memory anyway!
In 1985 Chinese Taipei competed in their first-ever the Gothenburg World Team Championships finishing first in Category 2 in both the Men’s and Women’s events. Shortly after they visited Bolton in the North of England and competed in two representative matches against a North of England side consisting of Donald Parker, Steve Turner, Steve Mills, Nigel Eckersley, Stephen Scowcroft, Joy Grundy and Jean Parker.
In this video, Steve Mills plays against Chih Chin-long.
Steve Mills is a former international professional table tennis player who still competes today at the top level for his age group and is passionate about his table tennis. Steve, a former England no.6 ranked player, and was in the top 10 for over 10 years. Steve will be competing in the over 60’s World Table Tennis Championships in May 2021 in Bordeaux.
Since retiring Steve has gone on to set up his own business where he operates as an international speaker, trainer and sales and marketing expert.
