Led by the host nation’s Vismay Vyas, an ITTF Level Three Certified Coach and ITTF/PTT level One approved Course Conductor; similar initiatives are planned for Sonipat and Alappuzha.
“A total of 27 coaches attended the course for the first time; coaches travelled all the way from West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, New Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra.” Vismay Vyas
Additionally, ITTF Level Two courses are planned for Ajmer and Indore.
“The course is based on the ITTF/PTT Level One coaching course syllabus. The course length is 30 hours and conducted over five days; to be certified, a coach needs to pass the practical test and complete 30 hours of practical training in a group of minimum five players, following the course. Five hours need to be a supervised test and a minimum five hours out of the 30 needs to be with para table tennis athletes.” Vismay Vyas
Most certainly a highly motivated group was present, all responding to the efforts of Vismay Vyas.
“My thanks to the Table Tennis Federation of India and Tenvic Sports for giving me this opportunity.” Vismay Vyas
Overall thanks to the efforts of all concerned a most successful course was conducted.
