I have started a Table Tennis Club at Abbey Grange in the last few weeks for 2 reasons: the first is simple… I love table tennis! The second is that sports and clubs are a great way to build relationships with young people at school, and the kids love it!
The club is growing fast, we had 4 young people in the first week and last Friday (our third week) we had over 10. My vision for the club is to not only provide an opportunity for young people to have fun and to get better at table tennis, but to teach them good sportsmanship and how to encourage each other, even when they don’t win!
Please pray that the club would be a safe place for young people to have fun and be themselves, where they can be encouraged and built up, not criticised or insulted. If you love table tennis yourself I’d love an extra pair of hands to help me with the group so please do get in touch!
