With the 2022 Commonwealth games just around the corner and preparation for the Welsh team in full swing, Table Tennis Wales’ Performance Team are turning their attention to the next generation of Welsh talent with the launch of a new series of engagement sessions just for Primary aged children.
The engagement sessions are the start of a new initiative towards engaging more primary school aged children into the sport, focusing on engaging children from school level right though to National squads through the implementation of new projects and opportunities.
“This is the beginning of something very exciting. After a lot of planning and preparation we have come up with this new and exciting concept and the aim is to find the next generation of champions and build the sport from the ground up. Being involved in Table Tennis Wales for 30 years, I am excited to see what is coming next – Stephen Jenkins, National Coach
The Dragon Engagement sessions are aimed at children aged 6-11, who are already playing table tennis in school or a club, who are interested in learning and developing their skills with coaching from the National coaching team.
“this new initiative will help shape the future of the sport in Wales for years to come, with the other projects in the pipeline we can engage more young people at a younger helping build a foundation for future development of the next generation of Welsh players, Clubs, leagues and coaches– Matt Porter, Swansea Development officer and Aspire Lead coach.
