QPCC Sports & Academies
QPCC boasts the only dedicated Table Tennis facility in the region and is home to some of our country’s best and brightest established and upcoming stars.
It is our belief that getting schools and young people to embrace table tennis is the key to our long-term growth.
We will work to get table tennis offered to young people in several communities and at least 10 schools by 2021. We will launch a School Club Link Programme to provide a vital and sustainable partnership with schools within the east west corridor of the country.
The School and Youth Programme will form part of the Table Tennis Academy Programme which will link parent and child engagement where QPCC will serves as the facilitator of this developmental partnership. QPCC will provide coaching, mentoring and assist with the development of these members both physically and mentally.

Five Teams participated this year in 6 Divisions. Bravados were the eventual winners, followed by Jaguars, Charmers, Loopers and Maulers.
During the year we successfully staged our two main tournaments the Annual Tournament and Hamper Tournament, which provided exciting and competitive table tennis for all table tennis enthusiasts at the club.

A2 Division- B Division C Division

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT FACILITY (YDF)
The YDF, housed under the Duprey Stand, represents the first and only dedicated facility of its kind in the Caribbean Region. Only 15 months in existence and already beginning to pay dividends as witnessed in the leaps and bounds development of its 20 Kiddie and Junior members.
Under the tutelage of Former National Player and current National Junior Team Coach, Aaron Edwards is the driving force behind the programs, in varying groups depending on age level and aptitude of the participants.
A certified grade 3 level coach, Aaron brings his experience and knowledge with a scientific approach to coaching his charges and the results have been remarkable.
The Section has always been self-sustaining and this attributed to the tangible support of our major sponsor, The Insurance Company of the West Indies (ICWI), with prudent management of funds by the members of the Table Tennis Subcommittee – Ronald Murray – Chairman, Fred Archer – V/Chairman, Merle Baggoo – Section Captain, “Lucky” Lochinvar Lungren – Treasurer, Kirk Newallo, Andrew Persad along with youthful volunteers Brittany Joseph – Acting Secretary and Aaron Edwards – Section Coach.
The transformation will continue apace in the coming year towards achieving greater heights for Table Tennis, the Club and Country.
We will deepen and expand our work at the Youth Development facility to include schools/community and establish a program for Elite Players, while providing our members with continued enjoyment and success.
