Lewes St Michael’s Table Tennis Club hosted a very special visitor when England Coach Craig Bryant (pictured centre) paid a visit to the club’s two junior sessions.

Craig is also the lead junior coach in the South East Region and has invited an impressive seven junior members of the club to train with the squad at this level, with more coming through the ranks and hopefully in contention to make the step up next season.

Craig said: “It was great to see so many young players in attendance at St Michael’s TTC. Having two sessions to cater for two different levels of player gives a great opportunity for players to improve and move up groups.”

Also pictured (right) is club coach Rob Hoy, who said: “We are grateful for Craig’s encouragement and the fantastic work he is doing for table tennis among young people in the South East.

“It’s great to see how our young members have improved with a mixture of fun, enthusiasm and hard work.”

The club meets in Lewes YMCA on Tuesdays, with a beginners session 5.30pm-7pm followed by a session for more experienced juniors 7pm-8.30pm and adults 8.30pm-10pm. Any enquiries about joining should go to Rob Hoy at hoys@rockuk.net
