It has been fantastic to have the international experience and input of EPT assistant coaches Gary Fox and Daryl Jacobs who have helped to inject an extra intensity into sessions whilst also providing one to one support to players throughout the week when possible. The coaching team is working well together and is learning lots with the players by adopting a personalised and flexible approach to progress.
Players at the top end of EPT are starting to make a transition to senior international levels and with that, I am really happy to see them taking more responsibility for the quality, consistency and progress of their own training. The group is working well together, encouraging each other to maintain purpose and high standards within supportive, enjoyable environment.
There have been some good recent performances at gold star tournaments, U15 8 nations, and Senior and U19 nationals. Special congratulations to:
- Freya Redfearn who helped the England U15 team win silver at the 8 Nations last month
- Amber Lam for winning her début Senior Silver title at the Middlesex Senior Silver
- David Jones who got to the final of U19 Nationals and has also been selected to represent England at the European Junior Championships at the end of the month.
The players are now preparing for their junior age-group nationals. They are all looking forward to challenging themselves and using their newly learned skills to win rallies, matches and medals. Please feel free to pop in and wish the players luck as they prepare for nationals and European championships!
