It was only a year ago that Dan qualified as a Level one Table Tennis Coach. Since then his interest in coaching, especially our juniors has developed with his maturity. After some thought I had no hesitation in suggesting to Dan that he attended a level two course. Dan jumped at the opportunity and I immediately found funding and secured the course knowing that he would be the youngest.. Dan approached the course as I expected with determination and enthusiasm. He was the youngest and duly qualified . From what I have learnt at 18, he is probably the youngest level two in the country.
From the entire club,
Many congratulation Dan.

MAGIC LITTLE GRANTS
This fund is managed through "Local Giving" in partnership with The Postcode Community Trust.
We applied for £500 which is the maximum awarded by this fund.We were introduced to the trust by Annette Kendrick of Leicestershire and Rutland Sport.
Some of our table tennis tables are ageing and this gave us the opportunity to replace one and to purchase a small supply of table surround barriers. The project has been completed very swiftly and we now have the equipment which is in full use. The club is very grateful to the trust and we look forward to submitting a further bid in the future.
COMMUNITY FOUNDATION LEICS. AND RUTLAND.
As we have become more successful so overheads and maintaining equipment becomes a greater challenge. So we are very grateful to the Foundation for being part of our growth by providing a grant of £800. These funds were used to cover our team registration fees, we have sven junior teams and five adult teams.We were also able to increase our supply of table barrier surrounds and fund a Table Tennis coaching qualification for one of our members. All was made easier due to the friendly and helpful staff. Sincere thanks from all our "Wizards"
