Thirty five girls from all classes in Our Lady’s Girls National School in Ballinteer took part in Thursday coaching session. Table tennis has really grown in popularity at the school over the last year, so much so that coach Brendan Golden now takes an extra weekly session with the students as part of their PE class. Having been introduced to table tennis at school through the Women in Sport initiative many students from Our Lady’s have moved on to play at York Road TT Club. Our Lady’s Girls students attended last months’ Challenger event in Lucan in great numbers and performed very well.
During this weeks’ very busy Thursday session students were put through their paces, practicing their fore hand, back hand and serving skills.
Our Lady’s Girls have two teams entered in the Leinster Schools League and their first matches take place this week against St Ronan’s and Scoile Bhride. Good luck to all involved.
