Was a Great Doubles High School tournament….In a few days, results and score points…
The phase above: “Doubles can decide a team match”, I heard from Jorgen Roskopf – Head Coach of German Team – in Dortmund 2012 , World Championship, while he was talking to another coach at the backstage. It’s really true! If you are playing a Olympic Team System and you don’t have a good doubles team, your chances decrease a lot.
On January 28th we saw very good singles players having a hard time adjusting their game style according their partner. This happens because it is not commom for people to practice doubles. I’m not talking about just techniques… FRIENDSHIP is very important in doubles too which means : You have to know your partner like the palm of your hand. A perfect conection is required to be a good doubles team.
Well the tournament is done and some upsets are registered at the desk. We will know soon if the doubles will affect the final results…
PREPARE your PADDLE and PRACTICE!
See you in March 11th…..
On November 19, 2016, the National Youth Table Tennis Association and Milwaukee Table Tennis Club hosted the first High School Team Tournament for the 2016-17 season and made history with a record number of high school players. Over eighty enthusiastic players from Wisconsin and Illinois played to decide who has the best Table Tennis Team. The NYTTA High School tournaments are a crucial component in its mission to promote youth table tennis in the US.
Coach Chico and Linda Leaf of NYTTA have worked hard to develop a format for high school competitions that encourages and rewards schools that make a commitment to build a table tennis program. “There is a strong recreational ping pong culture in the US and this can be the foundation to push that culture towards the sport of table tennis, starting with youth players,“ said Coach Chico, who was recruited by MTTC and NYTTA from Brazil.
Thanks to all of the teachers, parents and players who put a lot of energy and time in building high school table tennis. And, congratulations to the winners!
SAVE THESE DATES AND PREPARE YOUR TEAM: the next high school competitions will be on Saturday, January 28th, and Saturday, February 25th.
