We are excited to announce, our friend, Bill Neely, will be honored by the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame for his dedication and achievements in the sport of Table Tennis! Congrats Bill!

The article and letter below is from the Knoxville Table Tennis Club’s website, www.knoxvillettc.net:

KTTC’s past president Bill Neely has been notified that he will be honored by Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame as one of the “Champion Within”.  The honoring luncheon will be held in Nashville Renaissance Hotel on May 17th, 2014.  The following is the letter Bill has received from the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.  Also, KTTC and Bill Neely would like to thank Dwain Kitchel for his tremendous effort to prepare the package for Bill’s nomination.  Although Bill is not selected to be inducted into the 2014 Class of the TN Sports Hall of Fame, Bill has already made history to become the first table tennis player to be honored by the TN Sports Hall of Fame.  Bill’s nomination entry will remain active with the TN Sports Hall of Fame for the next four years for consideration as well.  For Bill Neely bio that was sent to the TN Sports Hall of Fame, please click here.  Congratulation Bill, you have made history!
