Weston & District Table Tennis League is offering sessions to help players improve their skills at the Hans Price Academy.

Inspired by the success of the Hans Price Academy and the N&B juniors in the past year, the Weston & District Table Tennis League, together with the N&B Table Tennis Club in collaboration with Hans Price Academy have begun a new initiative to grow the number of local table tennis players and improve existing players.

Table Tennis England coach John Ratajczak said the facilities at Hans Price Academy are excellent and with eight tables currently in use, this is a big step up for Weston.

Equipment is available for use free of charge.

Table tennis offers incredible value for money to play when compared with most other sports and the benefits of improving fitness and mental agility are significant added bonuses.

A new session designed to teach beginners how to master the skills of table tennis has begun at Hans Price Academy.

The session is open to all ages and is on Wednesdays between 7.30-8.30pm and costs £2 for Hans Price pupils, £3 - juniors and concessions and £4 for adults.

There is also a session designed to expand the skills and capabilities of players providing insight into tactics, training exercises to stretch the best players and much more and is open to players of all ages.

The weekly session is on Wednesdays between 8.30-9.30pm and costs £3 - juniors and concessions and £4 for adults.
