Munster Table Tennis, in partnership with Cork Sports Partnership, hosted two Activator Award (formerly Teachers Award) courses in Cork on 20 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 24 participants, 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. TTI 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 02/03 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 20 April – the current series had commenced on 09 March and was delivered by Munster TT coaches.
