Seems that Ritchie was also active in other sports. Gillmeister in his book "Tennis : A Cultural History" mentions that Ritchie competed in a regatta in Laleham in 1903 and won the single sculls and coxless pairs events. In addition he apparently was an avid table tennis player and was the secretary of the Table Tennis Association, founded in 1902. That year he also co-authored a book on table tennis titled "Table tennis and how to play it, with rules''.
