Table tennis club nets new equipment

Dean Paterson looks at how new equipment could help future stars

West Lothian Table Tennis Club (WLTTC) has recently received new equipment, thanks to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Two new table tennis tables from the Games, complete with Glasgow 2014 nets and 10 court dividers, are now in place at Bathgate Academy and will be utilised by both school pupils and members of the WLTTC.

West Lothian Council’s Sport Development team supported the application process for the equipment, with the aim of building links between WLTTC and the Bathgate Academy community.

The club currently has around 70 members and hope the new equipment will help the club achieve their stated goal of encouraging the people of West Lothian to participate in the fast paced sport of table tennis.

The club chairman Drew McLaren feels that the addition of new sports resources will mean they can increase club memberships and members will hopefully be able to use the new equipment to build on their skill levels.

Supporting WLTTC to develop and provide additional sports provision throughout the Bathgate community reinforces the impact of legacy from a clubs perspective.
