TTS Regional Training with Stephen Gertsen

During the February school holidays, National Youth Coach Stephen Gertsen visited our club for two days training as part of Table Tennis Scotland’s Regional Training Initiative.

Stephen delivered two sessions on Tuesday, 11-1pm for intermediates and 1.30 – 4.30 for advanced players which saw a great mix of players from North Ayrshire and South Ayrshire TTC taking part. Stephen commented on the great work rate and potential of all players involved and hopes everyone left the session with some new ideas and tips for their game.

The following day seen 8 of our top junior players involved in 1-1 sessions with Stephen and club coach Chris Main, which was mainly multiball and fitness based. We would like to thank TTS and Stephen for their efforts over these two days and hope everyone who attended found the training beneficial and enjoyable.
