Thanks to grants from VicHealth and This Girl Can - Victoria, MFTTA has been able to purchase a new table tennis table, 60 new bats and 400 balls for loan use by women and girls at the club stadium. In addition the club has been able to purchase 50 specially designed shirts for women and girls with the Get FITT© and club logos. The shirts alone have been a wonderful inspiration and give female players a sense of belonging and identity.
Free Come and Try Get FITT© days started on 11 October 2019 and continued, except for school holidays, and whenever there was not a lockdown. Many women and girls have had so much fun they have joined MFTTA to become regular table tennis players.
This program has been highly successful and has encouraged many new female players ranging in age from 10 years old to over 80 years old. It is truly inspiring to see such a great response. Coaches at MFTTA provided their time to help the new participants learn the basics. Each week there was an average total of about 20 participants. By early 2021, as a result of the Come and Try days, 13 new female members joined the club which exceeded expectations since we had nearly a year off due to COVID-19. This augers well for a substantial and gradual boost in female numbers, thereby helping MFTTA move forward toward a better gender balance, and getting more women and girls fit and healthy. We now have a Community In-house Coaching Team (5 female, 3 male) so we can provide female coaches for Get FITT© whenever possible.
The VicHealth grant monies were expended in the second half of 2019, so during 2020, 2021 and beyond MFTTA will fund continuation of the Get FITT© program. This will involve a female (Get FITT©) handicap tournament each year (2021 event just held) and a planned female only competition as numbers increase. Female participants have been greatly appreciative of the Get FITT© program which is proudly supported by VicHealth and the This Girl Can - Victoria program.
