Table Tennis England The Winning Edge Issue 6 - Page 3



Opening new doors
We warmly welcomed Helen Dennett into the Disability Projects position towards the end of 2016 , from where she hopes to make our sport as inclusive and welcoming as possible .
‘ With my mum and sisters competing internationally for Ireland I ’ ve always felt close to table tennis and loved being President of the table tennis club at the University of Liverpool .
‘ I ’ m incredibly passionate about creating more opportunities for everyone to enjoy table tennis , regardless of age , disability or ability .
‘ I ’ m also working closely with British Para Table Tennis ( BPTT ) to ensure there ’ s a clear pathway for any athlete with a disability wishing to progress to the Team GB squad .’
Paralympic path
Our re – launched pathway shows the route for talented players with a disability wishing to progress through to an elite level . Table Tennis England ( TTE ) is responsible for the grass – roots game and works hard with our current partners to develop more opportunities for players with a disability to play .
BPTT works closely with the Talent Development Centres to ensure we ’ re hearing about the best players with a disability . They host recruitment days in conjunction with TTE , where players can attend with pathway coaches , receive feedback and tips , and meet the Futures and Development Squad .
