The Association is sad to advise of the death of Bertie Levinge on 24th August 2021 at the age of 98.
As a player Bertie appeared at many veteran and interpro events in Ireland and will be remembered by all who knew him as a formidable competitor, a great character and a true gentleman.
Bertie’s best performances outside Irelandcame in 2004 at the World Veterans Men’s Over 80s Singles and Doubles in Yokohama, Japan where he became a double world champion. He had previously been runner-up in the World Over 70 Singles event in Manchester in 1998.
At European Veteran events, Bertie won the Over 70s title in Vienna in 1995. He was also a finalist in the 2001 European Over 75 Singles in Denmark and won the Over 80 Doubles in the 2007 European Championships in Rotterdam.
He was a credit to the Irish Table Tennis Association which he represented with distinction throughout the World.
On behalf of the Board and the Membership, we extend our condolences to his family and all who knew him.
Rest in Peace Bertie.
