The West of Scotland Table Tennis (Senior) League (WoSTTL) allows for our members to begin to experience playing against other clubs throughout the west of Scotland. The league format allows for home and away fixtures to be played against around 10 different clubs from October to May and provides our players invaluable opportunities to play against different styles and abilities in table tennis. The competitive yet social environment allows for our young players to develop life skills such as discipline, respect, and communication skills.
The season just past (2019/20) the club were represented by 7 junior players, 5 of whom were making their senior league debut. The fixture list was unforgiving at times with 9 game matches being crammed into a 12-week block between September and December and between January and March. The players deserve a lot of credit for the way they represented the club over the course of season and we’re all immensely proud and thankful for their efforts. We as a club believe we have built the foundations to kick on in seasons to come and this year’s team have inspired more club members to take part in the new season when it is safe to do so.
I even heard a few whispers that some of the coaches are dusting off the old rubber and shredding the timber put on during lockdown to show the young guns how’s its done. Watch this space!
