NMTTC links with local Schools.
New Milton Table Tennis Club was selected to run two taster sessions for the ‘gifted and talented’ children from local schools. Children with particular sporting talents were chosen from across the region and have been given the opportunity to try out several sports, including table tennis. Shaun Newcomb and Julie Smillie introduced the group to the basics and then they were given a carousel of activities to try out. Even after the short session the children made good progress and more importantly had good fun playing the game. Hopefully one or two may be motivated enough to come and join the junior club coaching evenings at Arnewood on a Tuesday.
A note to our regular juniors, there will be no coaching next Tuesday (5th March 2013) as Arnewood have a parents’ meeting in the hall, the next session will be Tuesday 12th March when several juniors will be completing their umpiring award. The junior tournament this season will be on Tuesday 23rd April.
