On Saturday 5th March, the Waterside Table Tennis Club hosted an ETTA Regional Training Day organised jointly by two regions, South and South West. Alison Broe (South Regional Coach) and Paul Whiting (South West Regional Coach) provided a challenging but entertaining day to almost 40 children. Alison and Paul had help from Mike Smith and James Lewis (South West region) and John Fox and Jeff Davies (Waterside TTC).
Players were grouped according to their technical level but all had opportunity to work in different sessions: foot work, robot and multiball, spin to win, and serve. Robot was certainly their favourites but still hard work.
At the end of the day, all left very tired but with a smile on their faces and the feeling that it was a worthy session that improved their abilities with their bats.
We hope we will be able to organise more sessions later in the year.
