PAP KILLED LOCAL ENTHUSIASM FOR TABLE TENNIS BY IMPORTING FT!

Remember last time when we used to have so many local players in Singapore table tennis? Where did they all go?

If you think about it, now everybody wants to watch swimming and shooting and all the other sports. Except table tennis. The answer is already obvious.

The idea to import FT is to raise awareness, improve playing standards and get more young Singaporean to be interested in the sport.

It failed miserably as schools import even younger FT to represent the schools and basically killed off any interest from local students.

Locals shunned the sports as there is no level playing field with those imported from china who had train been training since young.

Now we dun even see any kids playing in void deck anymore. In my younger days, we have to queue for our turns..
