Training Sessions Across The Province


In early June, three coaches, Jeremy Lehr, Nick Hiscock and David Milley visited Hopedale, Labrador and offered six days of training for local table tennis players. Thanks to McKinley Winters and Darlene Winters for helping organize the trip for us and to the Aboriginal Sport and Recreation Circle Newfoundland Labrador for funding this amazing opportunity. This was a wonderful experience for athletes and coaches alike.





Continuing with training programs, the place to be during the summer is the MUN Fieldhouse. Jeremy Lehr, Provincial Junior Coach, is conducting training sessions for Junior players that are eyeing a spot on Team NL for the 2027 Canada Games. The sessions take place every Saturday during the summer from 10:00 - 2:00 PM. For more info on the sessions contact Jeremy at jnlehr@mun.ca
