The Jamaica Table Tennis Association (JTTA) has given its clearest indication yet of its plan to establish a Centre of Excellence in the Old Harbour area.Last week the sport’s local governing body delivered a brand new Stag International DX1000 board to the Spring Village Development Foundation (SVDF). The India-made equipment is valued at over US$1000 and is one of the sport’s most popular brands for international tournaments such as the Commonwealth Games. The donation to the SVDF, a non-profit community-based organisation, was made possible after oldharbournews.com first made mention that Old Harbour is among several townships earmarked by the JTTA’s national development strategy, during an exclusive interview with its president Godfrey Lothian. “When I first read the story that the table tennis association is targeting Old Harbour I immediately jumped at the opportunity, because sport has a role to play in what we are doing here at the Spring Village Development Foundation,” said SVDF Executive Director Randy Finnikin. “So I contacted Mr Lothian, of course through oldharbournews.com and we were told that we could get a table and all we had to do is get a truck to collect it,” he added.
