  • WDHA Table Tennis Club’s T-Shirts or any suitable dark coloured T-Shirt for clear vision on the ball.
  • Trainers – Only NON Marking trainers will be allowed.
  • Jogging Bottoms or Shorts (No Jeans as it affects the movement which could also affect improvement and progress).
RESTRICTIONS
  • Use of mobile phones/music players/game consoles is strictly prohibited during the sessions as these would cause distraction and can affect progression of the player and other members of the club as well.
