That was just the direct quote from ITTF Hopes challenge head coach Peter Karlsson opening the official training camp this morning. It didn’t take long for the sixty-two young players to grab a ball and start practice either. The impressive newly built and beautifully dressed Falkhallen also stood the test during the first day. Despite travel fatigue and time-change the youngsters showed good energy and also skills beyond expectations;
“I think that the level looks good Peter Karlsson said. Much better than i thought to be honest. Seems like all the players can stand a full practice session – it’s quite impressive the Swedish coach said.
His opinion was shared with all the coaches on staff this week for the ITTF. Peter Teglaz from Hungary expressed his satisfaction with the group he was leading and said ; Pretty good level for this young age . They are able to complete most of the exercises without dipping too much Peter concluded.
The training in Falkenberg will continue with eight sessions planned until Friday . The coming weekend the action intensifies in Falkenberg when the Challenge tournament commences for two days. Stay tuned.
