Table Tennis coin designer Alan Linsdell

In a Royal Mint video interview with the Table Tennis coin designer Alan Linsdell (click image above to view), asked why did you choose table tennis for your design?, Alan said: Well I started playing table tennis when I was eight and carried on until I was twenty eight and now I’ve switched to badminton actually but I was really keen on it while I was playing it and I played competitively for a team for about three years as well and I played badminton for a very long time as well, nearly thirty years but I had to stop playing that because I developed a heart problem so then I went back to playing table tennis so when this competition came up table tennis was the sport I was playing again so it was the first sport that I thought of.
