Overall, a total of 14 students attended, six men and eight women; representing the national associations of China, Indonesia, Israel, Hong Kong, Korea Republic, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

Venue for the whole proceedings was the Huay Nam Kaow Room at the Lotus Pang Hotel in Chiang Mai; the initiative was led by Wilailak Tancharoen.

“It was a very intelligent group, they exceeded our expectations; theory and observation sessions comprised the itinerary under the direction of qualified classifiers.” Wilailak Tancharoen

Everyone responded to the efforts of Wilailak Tancharoen who alongside Dr. Sheng K. Wu, Dr Atttarit Srinkapaibulaya and Phui Li Se To conducted a most thorough initiative.

“I would like to thank the International Table Tennis Federation and the Asian Table Tennis Union for making the course possible. Special thanks to the lecturers at the seminars Dr. Sheng K. Wu, Dr Atttarit Srinkapaibulaya and Phui Li Se To.” Wilailak Tancharoen

It is hoped an intermediate such course will be held later this year.
