The new Dundrum Table Tennis Junior section has lifted off with great success. The Club has 18 junior players turning up every Saturday for practice with the emphasis on improving basic shots to a required level. The plan will be to have regular training on a weekly basis and players that show signs of improvement will be introduced to competitions and maybe senior training.
Some of the junior players are between the ages of 6-15. I started TT at 13 and I would have relished that opportunity to play at 7. These players are very fortunate to have a dedicated club and management with the best facilities I've seen in a table tennis club in many years. Our team don't just want a junior section but we want a junior section which will produce top players who can go on and represent the club, Leinster and Ireland.
