Cookley Table Tennis Club junior coaching sessions are delivered in partnership with Connecting Sports and Cookley Youth Club. They are led by experienced and qualified table tennis coach Mark Bennett, who is also DBS checked, first aid and safeguarding trained.
Junior coaching sessions are fun and engaging, but also focus on improving the technical aspects of the young players game. A ‘player of the week’ trophy, is awarded each week for effort, attitude and skill.
Children and young people are also given the opportunity to take part in an informal junior league, with a weekly trophy being awarded for the player with the most points after each weeks session.
Charlotte Bardsley, England youth squad player, started off her table tennis journey being coached by Mark at Cookley Village Hall and we are always on the look out for the next potential future England star.
