Unearthing new talents, the focus of Titans Table Tennis camp
From July 15 -26, the Titans Table Tennis Table Club will host a training camp aimed at unearthing new talents and at the same time develop the current crop of players. The camp caters for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced level juniors.
The camp involves an encompassing training which this year will see the involvement of national junior players to advance the training.
“We are targeting developing players, most players that are in clubs, and help take their game to the next level. We are also targeting beginner players, hoping to bring to the game for the first time, hoping they would take up the sport full time afterwards,” the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Level II Coach told News Room Sport.
Dick further explained there would be about five coaches and the same amount of national players to assist in the training. His wish is that when unattached players complete the camp, they would join the club and vie for a chance to represent the country.
It would mean therefore, more success stories such as Crystal Melville, Nicky Melville and Naren Persaud.
At the camp, participants would be exposed to building mental strength, fitness and fine-tuning technical prowess.
The camp returns to the Westfield Prep School, Parade Street, Kingston. Registration fee is $10,000 and the camp will operate Monday-Friday from 13:00h to 16:00h and Saturday from 10:00h to 14:00h.
Dick expects 50 persons to attend; 25 have registered to date. The age group is 6-18 and persons desirous of signing up can contact the lead coach on 642-3288.
