Ward, 4 December 2010.
is my pleasure to announce that the establishment of Table Tennis
Academy Townsville is under way. An interim committee has been formed
and we are planning to start up the activities in the New Year.
It will be a beginner's course for primary school kids and we will
also try to arrange activities like tournaments and coaching.
the objectives of Table Tennis Academy Townsville are:
- To involve children in table tennis as a sport, with emphasis
on fitness and competitive skills.
- To give the children, and also their parents, a positive feeling
of social belonging to a sound, safe and pleasant environment.
- To help table tennis players of all races and backgrounds to achieve
their maximum potential, first of all athletically, but also educationally
and as individuals.
is our wish that the members of the academy, besides from the beginners,
also are members of Townsville Table Tennis Association. We sincerely
believe that both cooperation and friendly competition between the
two clubs can make the sport of table tennis prosper in our city.
Tennis Academy Townsville is still not incorporated with any table
tennis bodies, this will come in due time. The first step was to
get valuable information from the Sports and Recreation Officer
of Townville and also the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
Community Development Officer. Contact with a primary school has
also been very fruitful, and the first beginners course will be
an after school activity in co-operation with the school.
important thing for the initial period has been, and still is, to
finalize objectives and goals and get all the planning done in a
proper way. It is still a lot of work to be done before the activities
can get under way, but we feel we are getting there.

North Ward, 12 December 2010.
Hey all of you!
Table Tennis Academy Townsville is under way! It is an independent
association - and it aims to give a better offer to the table tennis
players of the city. We will first of all look after junior players
but senior players are welcome! We will try to arrange tournaments,
initiate a league for the two associations, invite to team-matches
- and also have proper coaching clinics and squads. Plus beginners
courses and so on!
$10 a year (representative/club players must in addition pay the
affiliation fee to QTT).
Coaching fee: 48 dollars for 8 weeks, paid in advance. We will start
with one day in a week, a squad session of 2 hours (1 hours practise
- 1 hour fixtures, or alternating with coaching and Fixtures).
Day: Thursdays 6.30-8.30 pm.
Venue: Belgian Garden State School's multipurpose hall, 43 Potts
Street, Belgian Gardens.
Beginner course: We are starting a beginner's course for school
children grade 1-7, Tuesdays 3.3-4.30. Start 1 February, free come-and-try
day 25 January (same time).
players might wonder how it would be for them to be members of the
Academy and at the same time do some practising at the TTTA-venue
and play Fixtures there. It should be no problem: It is possible
to member of two associations. At this stage we have limited spots,
so we can not take in everybody.
If you are interested, take contact with me by email and I can send
you the objectives and rules of the Academy. Or give me a phone
call or have a chat at TTTA - Olav and I will still be there!
