The expert was Korakij Sermkijseree, thankfully always known as Kit! He is one of the most active and enthusiastic of all course conductors; ideal for the task of supporting Sekson Chawanadelert, the key man at the Ayutthaya club.

“I want to organise another ITTF/PTT Level One very soon; this course is very good for us and is a base which enables standards to rise. We have many coaches and teachers waiting to participate.” Sekson Chawanadelert
A highly motivated local organiser; similarly, it was a highly motivated course conductor,
“For me as a course conductor, I am always very happy to meet the people who love to play table tennis. Also, from each course I learn, meeting people I improve. The lesson is at the centre but I think the real teachers are the coaches, players and the students.” Korakij Sermkijseree
A successful course and one of several being organized this year by the Table Tennis Association of Thailand; the plan is to organize five ITTF/PTT Level One courses, two ITTF Level Two courses and one ITTF Level Three Course.
“Now there are so many coaches and teachers, so many people interested in participating in ITTF Coaches courses, so I can see a good future of the new generation of players in Thailand.” Korakij Sermkijseree
A bright future; one reason is Kit. He is enthusiastic, he motivates others and always he gives one hundred per cent effort, total commitment. He sets the example, a splendid example.
