Under the direction of Wellington High School Head of Sport Mrs Di Jordan, Wellington High have been the first school in the Wellington region to benefit from the sponsorship arrangement TTW have entered into with one of New Zealand’s leading providers of sports equipment Rebel Sport. Following a very well attended demonstration to promote the term three Wellington zone interschools competition Mrs Jordan was the driving force to get a school table tennis club up and running. Three new Double Fish Deluxe roll away tables were purchased to complement the existing school tables as well as nets, bats and balls and going by the turnouts at the club so far more tables will be required. TTW coach Andrew Hubbard commented ‘ It’s great to see so many students enjoying table tennis, today there were around 60 students playing, many new to the sport and I am hopeful that we’ll see a good number of these students taking part in the Interschools comp which will commence on Tuesday 10 August at the TTW Newtown stadium.”

It’s great to see you putting so much effort into promoting table tennis to the youngsters. They are definitely our future and well worth this effort. We need more new people in the sport. Keep up the good work Andrew!!!
