Bishop Auckland TTC and Aerobic Table Tennis Team Up
Bishop Auckland and Aerobic Table Tennis have teamed up to run an Aerobic Table Tennis instructor course at Bishop Barrington School – the home of Bishop Auckland TTC. The course will see up to 15 local volunteers/ coaches become qualified Aerobic table tennis instructors. This will be the first Aerobic Table Tennis course in the North East
Aerobic Table Tennis the brain child of UK coach Steve Rowe, since the project started in 2011 over six thousand children have taken part worldwide. Aerobic TT is fully supported by the ITTF, endorsements include The European Table Tennis Union, English Table Tennis Association, TT Wales, TT Scotland, Irish TT Association, English Schools Table Tennis Association and Sweden Table Tennis Association. Aerobic TT is partnered by Butterfly. Along with the endorsements, Olympian and Romanian International Iulia Necula is the face of Aerobic TT.
Steve Rowe said " in the last 2 years Aerobic TT has gone from strength to strength. It's amazing to think that the programme started in Wigan UK, and is now well know all around the world. I have requests almost everyday from many countries wanting to start Aerobic TT. Places like Jamaica, Australia, Spain, Sweden the list goes on”
Bishop Auckland TTC chairman Matt Porter said “we are delighted to have been able to team up with Aerobic Table Tennis to both run an instructor training course allowing people in the north east to come learn about the programme, and to be the first club in the area running Aerobic TT sessions, allowing people to come try Aerobic Table Tennis with the long term aim of getting more females into the sport of table tennis”
Even though Aerobic Table Tennis is aiming to increase females playing table tennis, boys can also join in the sessions. Aerobic TT runs many mixed sessions.
This is the second time Aerobic TT and Bishop Auckland have teamed up, as they have also teamed up with Pink Pong UK as the north east leg of the Pink Pong – Aerobic TT UK tour raising money for cancer research
