Generation 2 is proud to announce the employment of Heather Knight as our new ETTA Coaching & Support Officer. This role is for 2 years and sees Heather coach in local affiliated schools in the Gosport and Fareham area in order to create quality school club links. This will give more young people the opportunity to play Table Tennis and then develop greater skills at Generation 2. Another major aspect to the role is the development of an even higher quality coaching system at the club. Generation has a good reputation for coaching the sport and we seek to become an even better coaching club.

Sister Letitia saw off all competitors to sweep the title for the Under 11 Girls. Sam Masson just lost in the final of the Under 13 Boys coming second. Bethany Wells after a 12 month layoff came back to get 3rd place in the Under 16 Girls. Tom Chamberlain worked hard and achieved a great 4th place in the Under 19 Boys with Keiran Wells seeing off Hants Junior No1 (Lewis Creighton) to win the title.

Change at the top

Generation 2 TTC have a new Chairman. Charlie Childs who has been Chairman for many years has made way for a younger man - Tim Manhire, to take over this very important role at the club. Tim brings a wealth of knowledge of running successful clubs and a great deal of business knowlege. Tim's arrival further increases the significant volunteer workforce at the club in what is a time of great change. We wish him well in his new role.

He will be sadly missed by all who knew him and especially by the many members of Generation 2 TTC who shared some great twinning experiences. Geoff will be cremated at Portchester Crematorium at 10am on Friday 21st August 2009.

Hampshire Youth Games

Generation 2 again provided a team of players for these games which this year were focussed at players who have only played for a short while and not played in a regular competition.

So we sent Will Jayne, Matthew Kildea and Jack Warwick to do battle in their first real competition. An excellent performance from the trio saw them all progress from the group stages with Will and Jack as winners and Matthew as runner - up. Matthew then lost in the quarter final and Will losing out in the semi final.

Jack then fought his way to the final only to lose at the final hurdle. For all three it was a good days performance to build on.

Although we lost the overall cup for the Table Tennis by 2 to 1 a great display was put up by our very young group of players and some NOT so young.
