The Fiji Table Tennis Association started the Oceania Sports Education Programme in conjunction with Olympic Solidarity Level One Table Tennis coaching course at Laucala Bay Secondary School this week.

Participants travelling from Rabi and sports teachers from the West including Sigatoka Special school, Nadi Special and Tavua District are attending the course.

Representatives from Spinal Injuries Association, Counterstroke Fiji and several members of Fiji Deaf Table Tennis have all jumped at the chance to be internationally recognised Para Table Tennis coaches.

FTTA development officer Beth Farrell also stated that the dialogue among group discussions and conversations had been wonderful.

“The group discussions have been wonderful in trying to raise awareness of the barriers some people with disabilities face, but also the resilience, adaptability and positive attitude these course participants have which has proven that table tennis is a sport accessible for everyone,

“The course has been set in the National Table Tennis Centre at the Fiji Sports Council,” Farrell said.
