It has been another amazing year for Table Tennis in the Northwest Territories. Here are some of the highlights of 2017:

  • 60 professional Table Tennis tables are now in our communities and see a lot of action.
  • 15 communities have been engaged with Table Tennis.
  • Our “Elders in Motion” program has been a huge success and we were allowed to speak at the NWTRPA conference this year on bringing Elders, Kids and the communities together.
  • Readers’ Digest featured a full story on Table Tennis North, reaching across the country and beyond.
  • 135 kids showed up to the 2017 Territorial School Championships.
  • Aurora Ford has become a major sponsor for Table Tennis North.
  • Table Tennis North has been back to the Canadian Table Tennis Championships since over 30 years and reached the Round of 32 in the Men’s Single event.
  • Thorsten was named Volunteer and Coach of the Year by the Territorial Sport Organization. He also received the Betty Tweedy Award by Table Tennis Canada and the Contributor to Sport award by Sport North.
  • Aurora Fraser and Tamara Jovic have been named the Team of the Year by Sport North.

Just some of our many highlights of this year. Every time going into a gym, cafeteria, class room or really anywhere where we find a Table Tennis Table, is a highlight. We are grateful for everyone that has been involved this year and we are excited looking forward to 2018 and the excitement that the Arctic Winter Games will bring.
