As part of the KiwiSport initiatives, Table Tennis Wellington , as part of a project have been granted some funding support to promote/grow/introduce Table Tennis into Secondary Schools of the region.
Table Tennis Wellington believe the huge interest shown in the yearly one off College Championships is an indicator that a weekly competition for High School students has the potential to develop into a competition attracting hundreds of participants.
Table Tennis Wellington coach Andrew Hubbard has been charged with driving this programme which will be piloted this term in Hutt Valley Schools and expanding to Wellington & possibly Western Bays Schools in term 3.
Essentially there are 3 programme components: School Demonstrations, Coaching for students provided at the competition venues and schools and competition commencing Wednesday 26 May [4.00-6.00] at the Empire table tennis Club and running for 6 consecutive week. This promo, coaching , competition program format will be replicated in Wellington in Term 3 based at the Wellington Table Tennis Stadium commencing 10 August – 14 September.
