Table tennis was a big part of the National Junior Games, which took place at the Stoke Mandeville complex and were attended by 130 participants.

The Junior Games are a vital part of WheelPower’s sports development plan for young disabled people. They provide the participants with a unique opportunity to combine competition, coaching and participation.

Karl Bushell was on hand to provide table tennis coaching and support as well as running a tournament and several fun challenges. Karl donated various prizes for the competitors and the competitions were well supported.
