Cork Table Tennis Activator Award Courses and Women In Sport Programmes A Big Hit!
Munster Table Tennis, in partnership with Cork Sports Partnership, hosted two Activator Award (formerly Teachers Award) courses in Cork on 20th April. The courses were delivered by Jing Yi Graham, Women in Sport Coordinator and Participation Coach Table Tennis Ireland (TTI), supported by Munster TT coaches. A total of 27 participants registered, drawn from 18 schools, services and community organisations in Cork City and County attended the courses.
The Activator Award is designed to provide attendees with the skills and knowledge to conduct games and training drills at a basic level. Table Tennis Ireland provides certification for course completion and free associate membership of TTI to those who complete the half day course.
Participants will be supported by Munster TT to introduce or to further develop table tennis in their respective schools, services, or community organisation in the period after the courses. Participants will also have the opportunity to complete the level 1 coaching badge course in Cork on 2nd/3rd September 2023 should they wish to acquire more formal qualifications in table tennis.
In addition, Munster Table Tennis, in partnership with Cork Sports Partnership, completed its final session in the current series of Women In Sport programmes in Cork on the 20th April – the current series had commenced on 9th March and was delivered by Munster TT coaches. The final session was delivered by Jing Yi Graham, Women in Sport Coordinator and Participation Coach Table Tennis Ireland (TTI), supported by Munster TT coaches. A total of 14 participants were involved and TTI presented a small gift of customised towelware to the participants to mark the occasion and their commitment to participation.
