It is the fifth such initiative of the year; proceedings are being directed by Neven Cegnar, the Development Manager for the European Table Tennis Union.

A total of 12 players alongside 12 practice partners are present; all are benefitting from the experience.

“The Croatian Table Tennis Association and STK Opatia have provided us with excellent conditions. We are accommodated in the four star Milenij Grand Hotel Opatija and we are working in a new hall.  Renato Cengic, the Director of the Croatian Table Tennis Association and Diego Lipovsek have made a big effort to organize everything in best possible way”, Neven Cegnar

Two training sessions are being held each day, from 9.00am to 12.00 noon and from 3.00pm to 6.00pm; in addition players and coaches have been able to visit the picturesque Kvarner Bay.
