THE Fiji Table Tennis Association is satisfied with the progress of their training camp that ends today.
Over 30 participants were part of the two-and-a-half day training camp conducted by Norwegian coach Terje Dahl.
FTTA president Anthony Ho said the camp covered all aspects of the sport in terms of physical fitness, match techniques and tactics.
"This is very good for the sport especially for those players from the west," he said.
"This is because in the west there are no proper facilities for the sport and there are no coaches to train the players."
He said more effort would be needed from the players if they wanted to become professionals in the sport.
"In this camp, the players are doing six hours of training a day which is nowhere close to what younger overseas players are doing.
"Overseas, the players are so committed that they devote 40 hours per week just for training.
"But the sport is headed in the right direction and we are taking steps to ensure it continues to grow," Ho said.
Meanwhile, the Fiji Open Championship begins tomorrow.
