ULVERSTON Victoria High School is welcoming students to their Table Tennis Club, which is one of the oldest and best attended clubs in the school.

The club has seen over 30 students join their sessions on Fridays and has seen new equipment brought in thanks to Barrow & District Table Tennis League, Sport England, and Table Tennis England.

Keith Dymond, the Chairperson of Barrow & District Table Tennis League got in touch with the school after they received new funding, and along with Mr Hall, the pair have managed to acquire six new Table Tennis tables ready for use.

They also brought new bats and balls, UVHS Table Tennis club which can now allow ten games to be played at once.

Keith has been inspiring students during coaching sessions, new mini-games, and tournaments.

He said: “We are pleased to support UVHS with equipment and look forward to introducing many more of their pupils to table tennis.

“The enthusiasm shown so far has been very encouraging and with us providing regular coaching we look forward to many of them progressing and playing competitively in the future.

“This is exactly what the Sport England grant we have been awarded is for and any other schools or community halls interested in finding out more should email keith@btp-cumbria.co.uk”.
