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!

Seán represented Ireland A team in the primary schools international competition held in Lisburn (Belfast) on weekend Friday 5th April with the Ireland A team winning a silver medal.
6 boys teams competed, including Ireland A, Ireland B, England, Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man. Seán played 12 team matches and came out on top in 11 of these, including 2 singles and a doubles win over England who were the eventual team winners.
Seán competed in the singles event on Sunday. He qualified out of his group and went on to defeat the Scottish number 1 to progress to the last 8. Seán lost out in the quarter final to the Irish no 1 ranked player Fionn Hickey in a great 5 set match.
