ETTA Player Licence

Dear All,
Please ensure that you are aware of the new membership rules associated with the ETTA for the player licence. Without this new type licence, you will be unable to play or be involved in local league table tennis.

The new forms will be available on the ETTA website from 15th July after the ETTA AGM.

So that you are aware, if you affiliate directly to the ETTA, for some bizzare reason, they are planning to send your licence to the local league rather than yourself. This has been challenged with the ETTA and further help will be provided once sorted.

SATURDAY 26TH JUNE 2010

PLEASE NOTE :

THERE WILL BE A PRIVATE COACH EDUCATION DAY RUN BY THE ETTA ON SATURDAY 26TH JUNE 2010 FROM 9.30 AM - 5PM.
THEREFORE, THERE WILL BE NO MORNING TRAINING/COACHING FOR PLAYERS. WE APOLOGIVE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.

THANK YOU

Adventures of a new Famous Five.

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Dusk was setting on a still May evening and all was quiet and peaceful in the sleepy village of Child Okeford in the heart of deepest Dorset. You could easily hear the sound of crickets chirping and serenading in the adjacent meadow, the occasional clucking screech of a male pheasant, and the sweet smell of new mown grass wafting around. The five approached the old building from the winding narrow lane. Sanja being the oldest of the group said to Matt “Are you sure this is the right place” as the five walked quietly towards the huge old rustic oak double door that led into the Village Hall!
I can hear several voices coming from inside the hall, so this must be the place” said Damien to Tressa, and ten year old Hugo spoke in his quiet and angelic voice saying “I can hear people talking too, Damien”. Matt assured the others that this was the place they had to be and at 6pm sharp, according to Uncle Gary’s instructions. Matt pulled the heavy and creaky door open as the five strolled quietly into the lobby entrance of the Old Village Hall. Laden with all their heavy bags and rucksacks they were eager to get inside, take the weight of their shoulders and meet everyone. Uncle Gary appeared from the hallway and welcomed them into the playing hall where an instant loud cheer from a packed audience of over 100 people greeted the Famous Five.

Cadet Masters -- Tressa Runner-up

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

Tressa Armitage, recently promoted to England Number 2 on the April ranking list, held the position and finished runner-up to Emily Bates, England No. 1, in the Cadet Masters at Cippenham this weekend. Tin Tin Ho finished 3rd, Vicky Smith 4th, with Jessica Dawson in 5th place. Tressa only dropped two matches during the weekend to Emily and Jessica, won 6 in three straight and won 3 others in five, demonstrating her usual strong finishing in the final set. Tressa's placings in the Junior Masters (5th) and the Cadet Masters (2nd) leave her in a very strong position for selection to the England Cadet Team in the European Youth Championships later in the year in Turkey.

Girl Power Wins the Day

The titanic clash between the A and B teams for the premiership title did not disappoint. Both teams had 72 points going into this final match, but the B team had a games average of 167 – 33 and the A team 164 – 36. This meant the A team had to win, a draw would suffice for the B side. The average age of the B side on the day was less than 17. We will tactfully not reveal the average age of the A team this season – sufficient to say that when Tony Clayton beat Stellan Bengtsson in the late 1960’s he was yet to become world champion and the A team has won the Bournemouth premier every year since 1993.

Coach Education Day - 26th June 2010

Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club

We have arranged for the South West Regional Coach Paul Whiting to give ours and other coaches a coach Education Day (previously known as coaches’ workshops). They are a fantastic opportunity to update your current skills/knowledge and also share ideas with other coaches from your Region. It is also being suggested by the ETTA Coaching Department that the Coach Education days will cover certain CPD modules required for coaches to obtain their coaching licence in the future. 10:00am – 2:00pm Saturday 26th June 2009
