The boys training camp took place one of the Toronto area full-time clubs at the My TableTennis Club of Mississauga in Ontario, Canada. Fourteen players were supervised by four coaches: Maxime Surprenant (lead), Yang Shigang (USA), Qiang Shen (CAN), Jianfei Sun (CAN).
The 10-day camp was the first camp in Canada with the new plastic ball. At the end of the 17 two and a half hour sessions the players were at ease with the new ball.
The level of intensity was high throughout the camp: physical training, multi-ball, service training and different drills from the different coaches. Some friendly, but intense matches rounded out the training program.
I think this camp was beneficial for everybody involved.
