Table Tennis Scotland in partnership with High Life Highland ran a successful Introduction to Table Tennis Coaching Award at Culloden Academy on Thursday 9th March. The course attracted 17 candidates from across the Highlands and further afield, the popularity of the sport is growing immensely in the North of Scotland. The course was tutored by Stephen Gertsen who plans to start a community club in the Inverness area, building on the club already established in Elgin and training opportunities that our being provided on a regular basis.
Stephen said “It’s an exciting time for table tennis in this area, there are many people wanting to get involved and more and more opportunities to play are being provided in schools. Hopefully, at some point, we can establish a club in the Inverness area, it’s just a case of cementing a regular facility, and I’m sure I can make something happen in the long term”
