Girls Invited to Give Table Tennis a Go!

Horsham Table Tennis Club (HTTC) is working with the sport’s governing body, Table Tennis England (TTE), to encourage and support more girls and young women in the local community to give table tennis a go. Whether girls come to the party with the ambition to be a high performer or the motivation is more about fun and being social and active the club is keen to positively engage more female players with the benefits of playing a true sport for life.

The club already runs a strong weekly programme but with the help of Sport England funding is now kickstarting two new sessions catering for (1) girls aged 7-12 years, and (2) young women aged 13. Both sessions are running at the club’s Greenway Academy home in Horsham on Thursday evenings with full-time professional coach and Sri Lankan international player Amila Thilikarathne.

Girls table tennis is a strategic priority of the governing body and HTTC is keen to build on its strong tradition in developing female players. Nationally ranked players such as Sally Weston and Holly Holder stand as good examples but the attention is now turning towards cultivating a new generation.

As a largely indoor based sport table tennis was particularly affected by the pandemic but since returning to action HTTC’s re-building efforts have been well rewarded in its junior, adult social and competitive player ranks, supporting its motto ‘There’s a place for everyone in Horsham Table Tennis Club’.

This latest targeted programme will further build on this progress and with covid further increasing awareness of the importance of the role physical activity in maintaining a strong immune system and health generally it is hoped that lots of parents will see table tennis as a good activity for their daughter to try. Indeed the club is welcoming any parents or adult family members that want to take part to do so free of charge in order to contribute to a supportive environment for young players to make their first steps into a new sport.

Further information and online booking on the new sessions is available. Anybody wishing to make an enquiry about opportunities to play can do so by contacting the club’s development officer, Ian Ford, on 07764 146338 or Ianfordy@aol.com

Message from Barrie Thorne, HTTC Chairman:
 
"It's with sadness that Horsham Table Tennis Club has learned of the passing away of Derek Bunday, aged 90. Derek served the club for many years both as a player and a committee member, holding the key positions of treasurer and chairman. He was also involved in running Horsham's Senior British League teams. In the late 1990s Horsham achieved second place in the SBL Premier Division under his administration.
 
As well as making an immense contribution to HTTC Derek was well known in wider table tennis circles holding positions on the Crawley and Horsham League, Sussex County Table Tennis Association and the British League.
 
The club sends its condolences to Derek’s family and friends"

Report by Gary Turner (Team Manager)

R1 HORSHAM 1   CLEEVE PARK BLUE 5 .

Round 1 saw the team come up against a strong cleeve Park team that would go on to be the eventual  winners of the division , Morgan Turner was first up with a good 3-0 victory, which turned out to be the one of this  match , all the boys were a little rusty but some good matches followed with most going to 4 or 5 sets 

R2 HORSHAM 5   BYNG HALL GREEN 1 

This round saw a change of fortune for the team , they all seemed much more  relaxed and with the rotation of players Logan Newton made his debut with a win !!

R3 HORSHAM 4 BYNG HALL BLUE 2

The disappointment  of the 1st round was well behind the boys now and their confidence growing with every game , Morgan Turner taking 2 with Alex Power and Logan Newton 1 a piece ! , Alain Shibu proving to a great captain from the sidelines supporting his teammates brilliantly  !!

R4 HORSHAM 6  LIMPSFIELD 0

As the team headed towards the tail end of the day the confidence was high with the belief that  the runners up spot was in sight , they came out all guns blazing with a whitewashing all be it with a couple of games going to tense 5 setters !! 

R5 HORSHAM 4  CHATHAM 2

A tense match up with the Horsham boys needing 2 wins to secure the runners up spot in the division and promotion for the day 2 event , Morgan took first  blood followed by a win for  Alex who pulled out a great 3-2 victory after being 2-0 down , with Alain narrowly missing out with 2  5 set games. !! The boys went on to take the next 2 games and promotion was theirs!! 

A great day for the team showing really good promise,  thier support  for each other was second to none , well done boys !!
