Hamilton Grammar

  • I went along to Hamilton Grammar for a short visit on Tuesday to TT lunchtime club.
  • I met up with Active Schools Clare Murphy, Mr.Dyett (PE teacher) and pupils attending the club.
  • PE teachers seem to be very keen on table tennis and appear to have a good understanding of the sport.
  • As a result this helps them to guide pupils who select TT as a sport through Nat 5 exams.
  • I was also impressed with all 16 pupils in attendance (including club player Robbie McKenzie) making the effort at lunchtime to take at least 6 TT tables upstairs
    to a gym hall using a lift and then setting up for 30 mins of TT before returning tables. I wonder how many other school pupils would make that effort at lunchtime.
  • Looking forward to my next visit.

  • Delighted to have received East Kilbride Sports Council Coach of the Year 2017 on Saturday night at EK Village theatre.
