ATTU “Aim for the Stars” South Asia Training Camp underway
At the inaugural “Aim for the Stars” workshop each Asian Region was asked to prioritise one major activity for the region.
For South Asia there was little debate as the South Asia Games in Nepal December 1-12, 2019 were rapidly approaching and this multi-sport games based on the Olympics was the priority for all countries.
Mr Choudhary and Mr Singh of India kindly offered the Anshul Garg Academy in New Dehli, India, as the venue, at a very good price to assist South Asia , and has proved to be an excellent choice.
Head Coaches for the South Asia Training Camp include Anshul Garg[IND] and Mario Genovese[MLT], who is Head Coach of HITT Academy in Malta and leads many International Training Camps with the United Table Tennis Coaching Team.
Bangladesh, Maldives, and Sri Lanka, are greatly enjoying the training under the head coaches and with high level Indian sparring partners. Afghanistan are expected to arrive imminently following some visa issues.
“It is a great honour and privilege to be heading this 3 weeks Training Camp at one of India's foremost coaching schools, the Anshul Garg Academy, for the ATTU Aim for the Stars. The players are all super motivated with relentless energy and are surely following their dreams.
The objective of the 'Aim for the stars' camp will be attained as we touch upon all aspects of high-performance table tennis, handling technical aspects, biomechanics, strategy and tactics, mental training and much more.
The group will also undergo ITX training, a physio-psychological system strengthening the core functions of our thinking patterns during play.”
