Wellington High School Table Tennis Club a Big Hit



 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.”

College Sport Wellington High School Comp off to a good start

The inaugural College Sport Wellington Table Tennis competition got underway on Wednesday 2 June. The Hutt Valley zone saw 28 teams from eight High Schools take part. TTW Chairman Bruce Northover along with TTW stalwart Alan Costley were on hand to assist with the running of the event and also a special thanks to Maggie Dyer from the Empire club for opening the canteen.  Table Tennis Wellington Coach Andrew Hubbard  who as part of the Kiwisport initiative has been around the Hutt Valley Schools promoting this event commented that he was ‘very happy withthe  28 teams entered , and that he will be making a promotional drive into Wellington City Schools coming up later this term.’

There was a strong performance from HIBS first team beating HVHS 2, 7-0. The two Chin brothers Jeoffrey and Garret combing with Josh Baker who is strong in the third slot. They are one of the  favourites to win the Premier Grade.

Taita 1 lost 7-0 to HVHS 1 which was expected but Taita’s Rueben Reid nearly upset HVHS rep player Matthew Sheppard losing 12-10 in the fifth.

Taita 2 had  an unexpectedly  decisive 7-0 win over HVHS 3 which is a good result for them. Taita 3 also beat Upper Hutt 2  5-2 so it was a good day for Taita College.

TTW, COLLEGE SPORT WELLINGTON and KIWISPORT combine to grow table tennis in Wellington region High schools

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.
