The Level 2 Lead coach award is suitable for learners who have completed the Level 1 Session coach award and have gained more experience of Table Tennis coaching.

Bournemouth Cadet Invitation Tournament
We will again be running the Cadet Invitation Tournament this year, it will be the 24th year it has been organised and has some great names to aspire to including David McBeath ( current National Champion and England Senior International ) and Matt Ware to name but a few.
Last year's Tournament was a great success and enjoyed by all, I personally spoke to every player when they had finished and they all enjoyed a well-run event that gave them many games throughout the day.
There is no entry fee for the event thanks to another year of generous sponsorship.
The Tournament is being run on Saturday 21st July at
Dorset Table Tennis Centre, The Grange School, Redvers Road,Christchurch, BH23 3AU Start Time: 10am - Doors open at 9am for practise
Entries must be received by post or e mail by 14th July at the latest as per entry form attached and no entries will be received on the day as the draw will take place on Tuesday 17th July.

There will be a main event for the more experienced players along with a Tyro event for the less experienced players.
After the group stages players will be split into later stages where a plate competition will also take place in both events. There will be a separate Girls event and the format will depend on entry numbers.

Results; Cadet Plate
Winner, Max Bannon; Runner Up, Arthur Lomax
Results; Tyro Plate
Winner, Joel de Grave; Runner Up, Shayla Macey
There was some excellent play throughout the day but the pick of the matches was the 3rd/4th place in the Cadet event between Owen White and Jed Brackenridge.
Owen came through a really tough match to win in 5 very close games against 2nd seeded Jed from Weymouth.
Mention must also be made of the Girls Final between Sophie Barcsai and Jess Moggeridge that was won by Sophie after losing the first game.
The Tyro final was played by Logan and Felix, 2 youngsters who are still under 11 and best friends.
The standard was excellent but more importantly the sportsmanship and appreciation of the others fine shots was something to be commended.
Dorset Table Tennis certainly has some excellent youngsters coming through and they need to be supported and encouraged in the future.
Bournemouth 'Echo Report'
Katie medals at Butterfly Schools' International Championship
Neil Perrett neilperrettecho
KATIE Holt was the toast of Dorset after winning gold and silver medals at the Butterfly Schools' International Table Tennis Championship in Worcester.
The 15-year-old, representing England A, partnered London Academy's Patricia Ianau to a 3-2 victory over England B in the intermediate girls' team event.
And the teenager, a pupil at Bournemouth School for Girls who trains at the Dorset Table Tennis Centre in Christchurch, was runner-up in the singles.
Holt and Ianau saw off competition from Scotland ,Wales, Ireland, Guernsey and Isle of Man to emerge victorious in the team event.
Buoyed by her gold medal, Holt won all her group games in the singles and progressed through to the knockout stages, beating Scotland's Wictoria Smolarek 3-1 in the first round.
She had a big test in the quarter-final where she really had to dig in against Scotland's number one cadet Faye Leggett, eventually triumphing 3-2 (11-7, 11-9, 9-11, 8-11, 14-12) after it seemed the chance had gone.
Holt, who is coached by ex-England international Matt Ware, then eliminated close friend and England team-mate Gemma Kerr 3-0 (11-9, 11-5, 11-8) in the semi-finals.
She made an encouraging start in the final against Mia O'Rahilly Egan and took the opening set 11-2.
But despite having beaten O'Rahilly Egan in the team event, the Ireland youngster hit back to take the title 3-1 (2-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-7), forcing Holt to settle for silver.
O'Rahilly Egan had been a serial destroyer of English hopes as she defeated the Ianau sisters in successive rounds - Natalia in the quarters 3-1 (9-11, 11-8, 11-4, 11-7) and Patricia in the semis 3-2 (11-9, 3-11, 11-8, 8-11, 11-4) before seeing off Holt.
There was a special presentation to former English Schools' Table Tennis Association president John Arnold MBE and his wife Margaret, who have given more than 50 years of service to schools' table tennis.
John Arnold oversaw the merger between ESTTA and Table Tennis England and retired following the event.
