We are a group of students that have an interest in playing table tennis afterschool. We believe that this is a sport that is needed in our school. With the addition of this club, we believe that it can benefit our school as it is a sport that is open to all students in every grade. This sport can be enjoyed regardless of their skill level or physical abilities, since the critical component of such a sport is primarily the mind.
The main goal of this club is to share and experience the game of table tennis with others. We believe table tennis is a sport that is relatively underrated in Canada. We hope to spread the love for the game to others. It is a different sport that most people do not play and we hope with this club people will be able to learn and have fun playing.
