Coach - Jim James
Jim is a Level 1 accredited table tennis coach and has been playing table tennis for over 50 years. During this time he has coached many players and helped to introduce players into fixtures and competition.
Jim is particularly knowledgeable in both equipment and techniques which continue to develop and require an ongoing commitment to keep this knowledge up to date. This is particularly important for new players or those returning to the sport after a break who need to upgrade their skills and equipment.
Jim is a regular competitive player, playing fixtures regularly and representing Brisbane Table Tennis Association in inter club and regional events.
Jim is also a registered NCAS equestrian coach who works with children and adults from beginner up to international level and understands that being a good coach requires much more than just teaching students to hold a bat or sit on a horse correctly. His experience in both fields enables Jim to put these coaching skills into practice to benefit his students.
