Lothian Schools Inaugural Table Tennis Event a Smashing Success

Lothian Schools Inaugural Table Tennis Event a Smashing Success

The Royal High School in Edinburgh welcomed young people from around the Lothian region to participate in the first ever Table Tennis specific event held as part of the School Calendar of Events.

The day saw around 40 players of all ages and abilities experience a range of fun skill stations, allowing them to practice a whole variety of shots and techniques.  Experienced coaches from Murrayfield and Haddington TT Clubs were supported by ex National Head Coach David Fairholm and were on hand to provide guidance and support to the young people from Prospect Bank PS, Kaimes, Woodlands (all Edinburgh), Cedarbank (West Lothian) and Spark of Genius (East Lothian). 

Murrayfield TT Lead Coach, Lindsay Muir highlighted, ‘it’s fantastic to see so many young people having fun whilst playing Table Tennis and we would encourage anyone keen to play on a more regular basis to access the club’.  Murayfield TT Club are fully inclusive and welcome players of all ages with a physical, sensory or learning impairment to their club training sessions on a Monday evening (6.00pm – 7.30pm) at The Royal High School.

The event was an excellent piece of partnership work between Lothian Disability Sport, Edinburgh Active Schools, the Edinburgh Racquets Development Officer & Coaches, senior pupils from The Royal HS in addition to a whole range of volunteers.  This support, coupled with the input from the club coaches made the event a success for the young people and hopefully encouraged some to take up the activity on a more regular basis.  We all look forward to seeing everyone next year!
