RE: UKCC L2 COURSE - WATERSIDE TTC, SOUTHAMPTON

Morning all,


Please could you see below details of our upcoming UKCC L2 course at Waterside Table Tennis Club, Southampton. Please could you also share this information with any parties who you think may be interested.


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. The course consists of four days, spread over two weekends and separated by a home study period of 8-10 weeks. The dates for this course are:


Day 1: 15th September; Day 2: 16th September; Day:3 27th October; Day 4: 28th October


The qualification will build on planning and evaluation skills learnt at Level 1 session coach award and involves a more advanced level of technical knowledge. Coaches are expected to demonstrate more of an ability to analyse and improve the performance of their players, and demonstrate a commitment to their own development through extended home study.


More details about the course, and a link to booking onto the course, can be found here - https://coachingportal.azolve.com/Workbench/public/courses?ref=1F6D769BA83C6C48B3B8636DA75F6F5F08F51B92


Many thanks in advance,

Membership Renewal 2018/19

Author: Rebecca Hughes; Publish date: July 20, 2018

The new membership year is upon us, meaning it is time for players to renew their memberships and licences for the 2018/19 season.

 



Updated Calendar of Events from The League

 

Please see attached this weeks practice schedule and news updates.

 

There is a week to go for entries to be sent in for the Schools team competition. Thanks to a generous sponsorship offer from Simon Burke and his family, the competition is free to enter.

 

This is a pairs competition, singles and no doubles. It will be a good introductory tournament for beginners to come along and enjoy and also see county standard players in action. I can help players with partners if required.

 

Please also note that the girls practice at Budmouth will go ahead this week before the schools open evening. This is a change to what we originally advertised. However, there will be no Thursday practice.

 

All the best; Andy Millar; Development Officer; Weymouth & District Table Tennis League

Waterside Para Open &
Training Camp 2018.



Week beginning 30 July 2018


Summer Pairs League


Exactly 50 players took part in this competition. An endorsement for both summer table tennis and shorter format competitions.


Thank you to all who took part and for your co-operation and sportsmanship throughout. It was fantastic to have such a wide range of entrants across the Weymouth League, current youth and future NCL players.

Many thanks to those who helped pack up equipment at the end of each round. It made a massive difference to the time I could go home!


Congratulations to all of the winners.


Division 1 Josh Clark/Lily Cherry/Nathan Calton; Division 2 Jess Moggeridge/Thierry Roy

Division 3 George Ackerley/Sam Melhuish; Division 4 Liam Clark/Zach Barras


I was particularly pleased with the younger age groups and how they adapted to the rules of the competition so quickly, learnt some valuable umpiring lessons and also started to master doubles!


We have some very talented young players coming through which augurs well for the National Cadet League next season and beyond.


The full results can be seen on the League website.



WDTTL Website and other media

The WDTTL website has undergone a major overhaul, with a view to replacing and simplifying what was there with a new menu format.


One of the main goals is to make it much cleaner and more mobile-friendly.


This is still a work in progress and suggestions are very welcome to help further improve it. This update has been completed by Andy Crouch, who is taking over from Malcolm Smith as Website editor.

Many thanks to both for their work on the websites.


Please also note our other social media platforms, which Steve Blair continues to update.

Several reports have been printed in the Dorset Evening Echo recently, both online and in the paper itself. These include county reports, National Cadet League and most recently, the Weymouth Schools Competition was in the Echo on Thursday


The Indy Online and free paper also feature many reports such as the recent county report below

Summer Table Tennis

Summer practice continues every Saturday at the Wey Valley Tennis Centre between 10am and 12pm, the cost is 3. No booking is required and players may attend for 1 hour or the whole 2 hours, just let me know when you arrive.


The practice will be a mix of standard training drills, 1:1 work with coaches and match-play.
Summer Saturday practice is open to all youth players and adults.


Training Tops

I will take last orders this Saturday (August 5th) at the Tennis Centre. Training tops should be available in time for the new season.


These tops cost 10, come in a variety of colours and sizes and include all printing and optional name on back.


For Bats and other equipment

The summer is a good time to check out the condition of bats and consider new equipment before the new season. If your bat has lost its 'tackiness' and is looking worn, it may be time to freshen up with a new one or upgrade.


The starter bat we currently recommend for beginners and improvers is the winning loop bat from Bribar. I can obtain these for 25, though this is likely to rise in August.

Bribar Sports Equipment

I am able to purchase any other equipment from Bribar at a discount, so please speak to me before buying.


As stated at the top of this page, Table Tennis England Player Membership renewal is now due


Many of you will now be receiving an e-mail or post regarding your membership renewal.
Adult yearly membership is 16 and junior membership (under 18) is 8.

Please note, everyone has over a month (start of league season) to purchase this membership, so there is no immediate rush. There are 2 options for renewal.

1. You can join or renew yourself through TTE.
2. The Weymouth & District Table Tennis League (WDTTL) will add new memberships or renew your membership when team entry forms and payments are received.


All Weymouth League player members must have TTE membership.


The WDTTL player membership fee (27 adults/13.50 juniors) also includes the TTE membership fee and the WDTTL will do the appropriate renewal admin if required.

If any players do pay their own TTE membership fee, please deduct this element from your WDTTL membership fee.
Please also inform your captain, who will note this on the team entrance form.



TTE Membership Renewal; How to renew online:


The easiest way for players to purchase their membership is by direct debit.


Payment will automatically be debited from the players account on an annual basis, to save the inconvenience of manually completing payment each year.


To purchase your membership for 2018/19 season please go to your membership login page.



TTE Membership Renewal; How to renew by telephone?


Please note that membership and renewals for the 2018/19 season are currently available online only. Telephone renewals will be available from Wednesday August 1, 2018.

If you are an associate member, no fee is payable.
Any non-league/social players, parents, coaches or helpers can become free associate members.


There is a simple link on the TTE website to become an associate member or I can do the admin for you.
Please indicate you are a member of the Weymouth TTL at the appropriate place.


I hope this explanation has made things a little clearer, but please ask if there are any questions.
