Winning a medal at the Olympic and Commonwealth Games is the ambition of every talented young table tennis player – so it’s no surprise that the national performance framework followed by Table Tennis Wales is shaped like a pyramid and has Gold at the top!

It begins with the Aspire programme, before progressing to Bronze, ascending to Silver and finally reaching Gold at the summit of the pyramid. Each level of the programme offers more targeted coaching and support.

Focusing on the core measurements of a player – including technical, tactical, physical and ranking – the programme can determine how well an athlete is developing and highlight key areas for additional coaching.

With a high emphasis on the coach / athlete relationship, a motivational environment and up-to-date research in high performance, Table Tennis Wales always strives to provide the best possible opportunities and conditions to succeed.

Through using a holistic and person-centred approach Table Tennis Wales prides itself on supporting wellbeing and mental health, whilst supporting athletes to achieve their goals and aspirations.

The Table Tennis Wales performance framework is a national pathway for players to progress and excel. It keeps the development of talented young players, giving them the best possible opportunities to succeed at national and international level, at the very heart of Table Tennis Wales.
