Hopes & Mini Hopes Group Sessions

This year MSTT created a new group session for younger juniors who are commencing their journey in the sport. The Mini Hopes & Hopes group is held on Saturday afternoons during school terms @ Mullauna College (Mitcham) run by Chamara Fernando and sometimes an assitant coach is appointed to sessions.

Another group operating for young juniors is on Monday's @ Sportlink (Vermont South) where 16 players aged between 7 - 14 attend during each school term, run by MSTT Head Coach Mark Smythe and assisted by Dillon Chambers.

The first two players to come through this system and be part of the State Tournament circuit are 9yrs olds Nicholas Lum and Isabella Jiang - both also have weekly Individual Sessions. Nicholas played most tournaments this year while "Bella" played one. Keep a lookout for these two players in the coming years. 


MSTT has an established program for adults and older juniors but this year has created pathways for all younger players to enjoy playing the sport and provide stepping stones for those who wish to become top State or National players in future.
