We will also be running junior team based competitions in Terms 2 and 4 which will run alongside the coaching program on Tuesday nights.

Junior players are also welcome to participate in any other activities conducted by Southern Table Tennis, including the main competition on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

The junior coaching program is held on Tuesday nights from 7pm to 8.30pm during all school terms. The sessions are held at our 11 table stadium which is on States Rd, MORPHETT VALE. These sessions are a fun introduction to table tennis using a combination of free play, coaching and assorted games. They are suitable for children over 8 years old and of all standards. We offer one come and try session for free and if a child wishes to keep on playing we charge a onetime $30 administration fee and the child then receives their own bat. The cost is then $5 per session and you may use the primary school ‘Sports Voucher’ system to pay for a complete term.

We will be running two junior competitions this year, one in term 2 and another in term 4. The competitions will take place on Tuesday nights between 7.00 pm and about 8.30 pm and requires players to register as individuals. We will then form teams of equal ability from the nominations received. Players will get to play at least 3 matches each night.
