Want to get involved with table tennis in your school?
Gavin Evans currently works throughout schools in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire delivering table tennis to and raise the self esteem of our young people of the world today. Table tennis is a great way to get young people involved in a healthy, active lifestyle and is recognised as a life long sport so that once someone has learned to play table tennis they can participate for a lifetime.
GTE Sports can work with your school to provide table tennis in a number of ways:
1-2-1 table tennis coaching
After school club
Before school morning club
Motivational table tennis assembly
Nurturing Through Table Tennis
Schools can also arrange for Gavin to come in to schools and run individual pupil mentoring sessions to allow the children to speak openly, gain confidence and feel a sense of reward. This is how “Nurturing Through Table Tennis” was created.
Nurturing Through Table Tennis
Table tennis is a fantastic way to channel a young person’s energy and mindset in a positive way. Sport develops a growth mindset and teaches discipline so that a child always believes that there is progression in every skill that they will learn, have learned or are learning.
A growth mindset provides a young person to be able to learn a wide range of transferable skills, from counting to time keeping to problem solving, so they they can excel in school and in life.
Nurturing Through Table Tennis develops this growth mindset in a young person. As table tennis is the fastest sport in the world it requires a lot of cognitive and perceptual skill. These skills can be transferred into their school and social life which will raise their self-esteem and confidence and allows them to grow as an individual. It enables a young person to believe that if they put enough hard work and dedication into something then they will succeed.
GTE Sports believe that everyone is different and everyone learns in a different way and at a different rate but everyone has the ability to improve their own individual self. Because of this, individuals are praised for improving their own skills and are not compared to anybody else – as long as a young person has progressed, either mentally, physically or socially, then they have overcome hurdles, achieved and grown as a person.
The journey to the solution is just as important as solving the problem.
Benefits of Nurturing Through Table Tennis and a growth mindset:
- Improve problem solving
- Believe that they can learn anything they want to
- I want to challenge myself
- If I’m frustrated, I persevere
- If you succeed, I’m inspired
- I can always improve
- When I fail, I learn
- My effort and attitude determine everything
The founder of GTE Sports, Gavin Evans, inspires children around the UK with his sporting achievements and personality.
“The most rewarding thing for me is simply changing the approach a young person has to life in positive and more structured way”
