Tuesday Night Junior Program Overview:
Southern Table Tennis runs a junior coaching program on Tuesday nights during all school terms for the year. We also runs a junior team based competitions in Terms 2 and 4 which will run alongside the coaching program on Tuesday nights. There will also be one off occasional competitions against other clubs and we will be encouraging players to enter TTSA and affiliate junior tournaments. 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.
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. The cost is then $5 per session and you may use the primary school ‘Sports Voucher’ system.
Tuesday Night Junior Program – Term 1
Term 1 provides players with a mix of coaching and playing a few matches in round robin groups. Several coaches will be in attendance to provide a degree of personalised attention to all junior players. For those not ready to commence playing matches, a fun form of coaching / skill development will be provided across the session. The stadium is open at 7.00pm, please be in attendance by 7.15pm. The formal session is from 7.30pm to 8.30 pm. The registeration form is appended.
Good News for Primary School Students – Sports Vouchers now provide $100.00 funding assistance to attend sporting programs. Parents can claim one voucher a year. This means when you register, you now can obtain 2 consecutive school terms of table tennis completely FREE of charge (other than the $30.00 fee which provides new juniors with a table tennis bat and cover).

TTSA Saturday Morning ‘Smash Hit’ Competition
The TTSA Summer Smash Hit is an 11 week competition conducted from late October to early March in the following year, with a break during the school holiday period. The competition goes for 11 weeks and there has been a break over the school holiday period. The matches are spread between Southern, Brighton and Adelaide table tennis clubs. This is a great way to get some experience playing juniors from other clubs and we encourage all Southern juniors to take part.
