The camps saw the players working on their serve and return game along with tactics with the opportunity to quiz Chris on table tennis and his experiences in table tennis including being 3-time world champion is the hard bat form of the game and many people will have watched him reach the quarter finals at the world championships of Ping Pong, a sand paper variation on the game, on sky sports last month.

“It was a pleasure working with the club you can see why they won club of the year the hard work the volunteers put in is clearly visible” said Chris “the camp was excellent, was great to see so many kids over both days enjoying their Table tennis and working hard to improve”
