Australia's no. 1 coach

Coach David with Oceania Cadet Team

David Powell, Oceania Cadet Boys Coach for 2nd year in row, has just led the Oceania Cadet Boys & Girls Team in a 5 day training camp in USA at the ICC.

They are now in Barbados about to compete in the annual World Cadet Challenge (WCC) played from Oct 23 - Nov 1.

The WCC can be a great launching pad to discover future champions, hence the catchphrase on WCC shirts, "With the Future in Mind". This was shown early on with the Boy's Singles winner at the first WCC in 2001 being no other than Jike Zhang who has become one of the greatest players of all time by winning the Men's Singles titles at 2012 London Olympics and 2011 & 2013 World Championships.
