A Yellowknife table tennis enthusiast is proving it’s never too late to follow your dreams.

Sixty-one year old retiree Paul Devitt recently returned home from a professional table tennis training camp in Hungary.

“I really just want to be the best that I can be,” Devitt says.

He trained six hours a day to get in shape before travelling to Hungary last month. He spent two weeks at the Hungarian training camp, getting tips from some of Europe’s top coaches.

Table Tennis North and Aerobic Table Tennis visited Deh Gah School (Fort Providence), Chief Sunrise (Hay River Reserve), École Boréale (Hay River), Weledeh Catholic School (Yellowknife) in the Northwest Territories. We worked with 400+ kids and even did a session with 250 at one time. The biggest excitement came from doing a full Aerobic Table Tennis session on ice.

“Team NWT YOU CAN PLAY Video Initiative”

TT NORTH No Comments

Table Tennis North is taking part of the “Team NWT YOU CAN PLAY Video Initiative” by Sport North.

“You Can Play is about respect,” said Sport North’s Spider Jones, who is coordinating the initiative. “It’s about respect for athletes, and coaches and fans, regardless of sexual orientation.

“The message is simple: it’s about welcoming LGBTQ [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning] athletes to sport,” he said. “Making it safe for athletes to participate. It’s what they can bring to sport, not based on their sexual orientation.”

GO Team NWT GO!!! — with Thor S Ten, Tamara Jovic, Ollie Williams and Brian Liang.

Ask any competitive athlete from the North about the legacy of the Arctic Winter Games and the answer will always be one of lifechanging influence, says Betsy Mawdsley, a former biathlete from Fort Smith who has competed on the national and international circuits.

“I don’t think you can find an athlete from the NWT who was successful who didn’t come out of Arctic Winter Games,” she says.
