Table tennis camp ends

ABOUT 40 participants were part of the Fiji Table Tennis Association three-day National Junior Training Camp that ended in Suva yesterday.

Association president Anthony Ho said the camp taught the participants the basics of the sport at their new Fiji Sports Council National Table Tennis Centre in Laucala Bay.

"The camp featured kids from the ages of six to 15 year olds and it was a good way for the kids to spend their school holidays," he said.

"It was also cheap as well because it cost only $5 per pay and it taught the kids the basics of the game.

"These are the same participants that would now compete in the Rising Star Series which begins tomorrow (today) and would give these players a chance to put to use what they have learnt in the camp."

Ho said the camp was also a training ground for development officers and accredited coaches.

"We had eight local development officers and five trainee coaches who had completed ITTF level one coaching certificate conduct the camps and teach the kids the sport. For them to become fully qualified they would need to complete 30 hours of coaching under supervision and this was a good ground for them to do that."

Meanwhile, national coach Mohammed Gharib worked with elite players to fine-tune their game skills.

Ho said those players who performed well in the training camp would get a chance to work with Gharib later this season.
