What a great night at the Youth Club on Friday for the Launch of the Old Library Table Tennis Academy. Over 18 of our youth club members turned up to see Darius Knight the team GB International table tennis star.
The atmosphere was electric. Our members were keen to take on Darius and show off their table tennis skills but first Darius and Lina, who will be running the 40 week Table Tennis Academy at The Old Library, wanted to meet and chat with young people and let them know what the Academy was all about. Darius gave an inspirational speech, which meant our young people were raring to go and couldn’t wait to take on the great man himself.
All the young people got to play a game of table tennis with Darius and each of them fought valiantly but none of them managed to defeat Darius (although we’re quite sure by the end of the tournament there will be some real contenders who can take on the challenge.).
The event was amazing and a great start to the Table Tennis Academy. Watch this space for the next rising table tennis star right Outta of West Norwood.
