Easter Training Camp.

Perry & Ware Easter Training Camp



Easter Training Camp; Brief Report from Matt Ware.

It was a great training camp with numbers of :- Monday 28; Tuesday 34; Wednesday 28


I think every player learnt a lot from the expertise and knowledge that Alex Perry had to offer. I personally believe that every player gave full commitment to the training and therefore benefited from this Easter camp. All players were put through their paces with footwork, serve/receive, multiball drills and match play.


Majority of the players attending were from the Dorset area but some came from Bristol, Taunton, Bath and Winchester.


Myself and Alex plan to do another training camp in the summer months.


Big thank you to Simon Heaps and Finn Morgan Bayliss for their efforts over the last 3 days of coaching.


Best Regards; Matt Ware; Head Coach of the Dorset Table Tennis Academy; 07788968232:or follow the link :- Link.


Alex has played and coached at the Highest of levels and we welcome him back for another training camp.


Please find above, information regarding The Perry & Ware Easter Training Camp.

We are very fortunate to have Alex Perry - 4 x Commonwealth & 5 x National Champion with us over 3 days in the Easter Holidays.


Alex has played and coached at the Highest of levels and we welcome him back for another training camp.


If you wish to book onto the camp please contact myself, there are limited spaces available so make sure you book up quickly.
