Bill Rees has been living in the south of France for ten years
working as an itinerant bookseller in Montpellier. The one
thing he misses about England is table tennis. Then he sees
an advert to join a club for “experienced players only” and
veterans. He starts training immediately, he’s forty and not
as fit as he used to be but Bill Rees is returning to the game
à la carte.

About the Author

Bill Rees lives in Le Vigan (Sud de France), and makes a precarious living by selling used books. He studied at UCNW (Bangor) and Birkbeck College. He worked as a reporter for a local newspaper in London before the lure of travel and bookselling led him to take a less conventional path. His memoir, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Book Runner was published by Parthian in 2011. In recent years Rees has rediscovered the joys and frustrations of competitive table tennis. An embarrassingly large amount of Rees’s time and energies have been devoted to perfecting his backhand top spin.
