Table Tennis

Table tennis is offered to all students in the Secondary School as both a winter and recreational sport.

We cater for players at all levels. Beginners play on Tuesdays after school. We usually enter up to three teams in the Wednesday Inter-school Competitions, played at the Canterbury Table Tennis Stadium. We have won both this competition, and the Canterbury Secondary Schools Championships several times. When talent allows, our leading players also participate at the national tournament, where our best result to date is finishing as the seventh highest secondary school.

We have good facilities, including six excellent tables. Practice and coaching sessions are held in the mini-gym.

Table tennis is a game for life. It benefits students’ hand eye co-ordination, fitness, recreation, brain-power, and strategy.
