Fantastic 1st session of coaching the coaches with Jjng Yi in Kinsale. The wind howled and roared but we were too busy and intent on table tennis to take much notice. In the 2nd session the budding coaches will put their new skills in to practise on some beginning players. Then in the 3rd session they will be rewarded with some training themselves from Jing Yi herself!
