The fourth ETTA Summer Camp took place at Lilleshall National Sports Centre from August 3-6, 2013. Four players from each Region (two boys, two girls) were selected by the ten regional coaches based on their commitment to regular training over the season.

The programme over the four days included physical training, on table technical training, and multiball. This was combined with fun activities in the evenings including a talent show and sports quiz.

All the players put in an excellent shift throughout the week, the players also had opportunity to mix with other sports including badminton and squash, making new friends along the way.

The ten regional coaches, in attendance along with National Talent Manager Jill Parker, were impressed with the maturity of the youngsters, who did their regions and the ETTA proud.

Denise Payet and Emily Bolton, who were involved in the camp in 2011, have since gone on to represent England at the European Youth Championships.
