Stroud TTC recently had a visit from Stephen Bourke, the new South West Area Manager for Table Tennis England.

Stephen met club Chairman Jim Hurford and other coaches and said of his visit: “It was great to head to Stroud TTC and meet Jim and other coaches from the area.

“It was positive to see so many people from all ages enjoying table tennis in a fun and safe environment. The discussions of youth development, TT Kidz programme and coach development within not only Stroud but the county were the key discussion points and potential development plans were well received by all in attendance.

“I thoroughly look forward to working closely with Jim, Nigel, Cliff and all involved in the county to further develop table tennis across all levels.”
