CHS Table Tennis convener
We were privileged to welcome John Murphy, National Head Coach, to our Junior Training Session on Saturday 15 June where our juniors turned out in large numbers to allow John to see the quality of our players.
His input was greatly valued as our Junior Teams prepare themselves for the Australian Championships next month.
Table Tennis NSW thanks John for his efforts particularly as earlier in the week he, like many of our players, was suffering the effects of the current flu.
