A 6 player team from Shandong, China arrived a few days ago and play at an amazing level. Along with the Canadian Junior Girls team they have provided the backbone of a 5 day training camp run at the centre and we were lucky enough to also be joined by 2012 US Olympian, Ariel Hsing. In between training days Ariel also took some time to lead Princeton in winning the NCTTA championship at the club and also showed no fear in taking on the Shandong players in the games.

So, enjoying my time here so far. Please take a moment to check out http://www.lilyttc.com/ the homepage of Lily's club. It is an ITTF Hotspot training centre and has a great squad of coaches and training events throughout the year.
I will try and keep the blog up to date the best I can though I'm quite busy at the moment! :)
