Table Tennis Coach Profiles

 

Janet Spicer - Table Tennis Coach

Janet Spicer I have been a member of The Limpsfield Club originally as a playing Table Tennis member since 1992. I played Internationally for Scotland Juniors and Seniors over a period of 12 years competing in Commonwealth, European and World Championships as their Number 1. The highlight being Bronze medalist at the Commonwealth Games.

In 2009 as a qualified licensed ETTA coach I started a junior coaching session on Monday 5-7pm, which has gone from strength to strength. This season the best 4 players played in the Sevenoaks Junior Development League, which they won without losing a match. The coaching sessions are divided into technical coaching and matches, but above all having fun. All abilities are welcome and catered for.

In addition to coaching Juniors I am also available to coach adults either as individual sessions or groups.

Worked and Managed a local Pre School for over 10 years. As a Diploma level 3 qualified in Pre School practice I understand and am passionate about the benefits of children aged 3 to 5 taking part in sport. Therefore I have started "Sporty Tots" on Mondays, to cater for this age group, but based around gross motor skills including hand eye co-ordination, balance, movement, communication skills, interaction, making decisions, developing important brain structures as well as establishing good habits for being active and healthy, which will stand them in good stead for years to come!
