Donegal Sports Partnership in conjunction with Table Tennis Ireland gave 3rd class a taster session at ATU Letterkenny (An Dánlann) on Wednesday 1st February. The session was facilitated by table tennis coach JING YI Graham.
Jing Yi Graham is the Female Lead Coordinator with Table Tennis Ireland but is engrained in all parts of their participation efforts. After working with Table Tennis Ulster as a Junior Development Officer, Director of Coaching and then High-Performance Coach for 15 years, she moved into the national set-up.
The children had a wonderful time learning and practising table tennis skills. Perhaps there will be some kitchen tables at home put to an unusual use soon, with the addition of clip on nets which you can buy in sports shops!
