Board Members

President

Trevor Barrett

Trevor Barrett first became involved with table tennis in 1975. He became a member of a table tennis club in the Blue Mountains where he lived, and continued this involvement until he moved to Queensland in 1986. He then joined the Twin Towns Table Tennis Club, playing there until he later joined the Gold Coast Table Tennis Association in about 1989, where he was an active member until 2007. During his time at the Gold Coast, Trevor held the positions of Committee Member, Secretary, Vice President, and President. He is a Life Member of the Gold Coast association.

In 2007 Trevor and his wife moved to Bundaberg, where he now works as a Head of Mathematics at St Luke’s Anglican School. He is a current member of Bundaberg Table Tennis Association and still participates regularly in fixture events. He is also an accredited State Level Umpire, and is currently working on attaining National Level accreditation.

Trevor became Vice President of TTQ in 2006, and has been President since 2007. He hopes to see the continuing success of Queensland players across all age groups up to national level and beyond, and has a particular interest in increasing the development and retention of younger players in the sport who are at school or university. A major goal is to see TTQ membership exceed 2000 players and all Queensland clubs represented at the Annual Development forum and AGM.

   

Vice President

Steve Mitchell

 

 

As a keen junior and now veteran player, Steve has seemingly always had an interest in table tennis and how the sport is played in Queensland. Steve became aware that perhaps the time had come to take on a more formal role within the table tennis community and so became a TTQ Board Member in 2014.

In 2016 Steve then accepted the position as Vice President of TTQ and is currently serving TTQ members in that capacity.

Steve has endeavoured to make changes where appropriate, to improve participation rates, interest levels and general consistency in decision making by encouraging the Board Members in TTQ to embrace our great State as a whole.

Steve is very keen to continue playing and competing for as long as possible because of the health benefits and friendships made through participating in competitions.

He hopes to see you out there at a tournament, and is always interested to hear what players have to say about TTQ and the job we are doing.

Martin Solomons

Martin's interest in table tennis was founded at age 8 on an old trestle table using a sand paper covered bat. During early years at high school, Martin took up the game competitively, progressing to Victorian State squad, and "A" grade fixtures before retiring in his early 20's to concentrate on family, studies and career.  He returned to the sport in retirement some 16 years ago.  Since then he has represented Victoria and Australia, travelled to every State and half way around the world pursuing his passion. Martin is loving keeping mind and body together through the sport  and he says "It's great to meet folk from all walks of life and a variety of cultures".

Now, some 60 years on, Martin is looking to giving something back.  In his own small way he would like to make a contribution to progressing the sport across Queensland.  With a wealth of administrative experience from his years in State Public Service and a decade of service as a Councillor and Mayor of the City of Kew where he lived, Martin is looking forward to the challenges of his new role.
