table tennis circle mourns the death of alfred wagner

The table tennis circle of kronach mourns the death of alfred wagner. He had earned great merits not only as an active player but also as a functionary.
The deceased played table tennis for ts kronach from 1948 up to the state league until his old age. In 1970, his volunteer work began. He was district sports director until 1990 and district games director until 2005. From 1980, he was also district chairman for 17 years. During this time, he belonged to the legal advisory board of the bavarian table tennis association (bttv) for seven years and was secretary at district level for 18 years. He exercised all his honorary offices in addition to his time-intensive work as clerk of the district court of kronach.
When alfred wagner resigned as district chairman in may 1997 in nurn, the representatives of all 32 table tennis clubs unanimously appointed him honorary district chairman.

Now she is the mermaid of the fountain, the first and only one in schonbrunn. Emma i., if you will.

From this or. Its bell, the festival also got its motto.
