THE Bu­l­awayo Ta­ble Ten­nis Union (BTTU) will con­duct a Level One coach­ing clinic next week on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day whose pur­pose is to spread the game in the prov­ince.

At least 40 par­tic­i­pants have reg­is­tered for the event with the union invit­ing in­ter­ested in­di­vid­u­als to reg­is­ter for the clinic .

BTTU trea­surer, Luba Ndlovu, said the coach­ing clinic was an im­prove­ment of last year’s course which was con­ducted by the Zim­babwe Ta­ble Ten­nis Union (ZTTU).

“This two day class is an up­grade of last year’s ba­sic course which was in­tro­duced by the ZTTU, it’s meant to spread and im­prove the game across Bu­l­awayo prov­ince,” said Ndlovu.

Ac­cord­ing to Ndlovu, the course will also as­sist the uni­formed forces es­pe­cially the po­lice im­prove their skills since ta­ble ten­nis has been in­tro­duced in the South­ern African Re­gional Po­lice Chiefs Co­op­er­a­tion Or­gan­i­sa­tion (SARPCCO) Games.

“Ta­ble ten­nis en­ables one to plan be­fore play­ing and re­quires think­ing ca­pac­ity among in­di­vid­u­als, which is an ad­van­tage es­pe­cially to school go­ing chil­dren,” he said.

Par­tic­i­pants will be re­quired to pay $40 in course fees.
