International Training Center,
High Performance – Falkenberg

Vårt internationella träningscenter uppgraderat, och är nu ett av de fem bästa i världen!

ITTF har beslutat uppgradera vårt internationella träningscenter.
Från starten 2011 har vi varit ett Hot Spot Center (nivå 4). Nu har ITTF beslutat flytta upp oss till nivå 2, vilket med ITTFs terminologi innebär att vi hädanefter är ett ”International Training Center” med beteckningen ”High Performance”.

Endast två träningscentra i världen är högre rankade, ett i Kina och ett i Österrike.
Vi kan vara mycket stolta över det arbete som lett fram till uppgraderingen. Det gäller såväl det som våra tränare utför, som det arbete som sker i bakgrunden med inkvartering, förhandlingar med matställen och all annan service vi ställer upp med.

Stort tack och grattis till alla involverade!
Nu gäller det att inte slå sig till ro, utan arbeta vidare med utveckling av vårt koncept. Uppgraderingen, där vi faktiskt tog två kliv uppåt, ska nu omsättas i energi att fortsätta på den inslagna vägen.

International Training Center,
High Performance – Falkenberg

In 2011 our international training center started as an ITTF Hot Spot Center. After 5 years ITTF decided to upgrade the center to the level High Performance.

This means that the training center run by Falkenbergs BTK is rated one of the five best in the world! We are very proud that the hard work at the tables as well as the work in the background has proven to be of this high standard. The center is open to players from all over the world.

Our trainers/coaches have been very successful in developing young promising players into players of a high international level. Omar Assar (Egypt) and Soumyajit Ghosh (India) are only two of many players to climb on the world ranking while attending the training center at Falkenbergs BTK.

PLANS OF THE CENTER

In Falkenberg we want to give young and motivated players from all over the world a chance to practise in a high level environment.

Our focus is on giving these young players a complete ”table-tennis education”, which includes technique, tactics, mental fitness and physical fitness. It is very important for us to include the players in the process.

We believe that a player with high awareness and ability to take responsibility for herself/himself will be more ready to compete and perform on a high level.

YOSHUA JORDAN SHING, VANUATU

Yoshua Jordan Shing, aged 22, from Vanuatu said this on leaving Falkenberg in December 2015 after two and a half months:

– I was nominated by ITTF for the ”Future in Mind Program”. I’m here on an ITTF scholarship.
I love training here, the coaches are very professional and I get to train with very good players from around the world. I’ve learned so much these past two months practising here.

I just want to thank ITTF for giving me this opportunity to improve my skills here in Falkenberg. I would also like to thank Falkenbergs BTK for everything.
