Castries North Youth Get Table Tennis Equipment

The Taiwanese Embassy here has made a donation of table tennis equipment to the youth of Castries North.

The donation was made on Friday to the MP for the area, Stephenson King, who received it on behalf of the Chase Gardens-Carielle Table Tennis Club, according to a news release.

King expressed optimism that the equipment will produce highly skilled professional table-tennis players from Chase Gardens, Carielle and neighboring communities.

Taiwanese Ambassador, Douglas Shen, said the gift further demonstrates Taiwan’s genuine commitment to supporting the growth and advancement of the Saint Lucian people.

Shen announced the offer of an annual scholarship to young Saint Lucians who excel academically and in the sport of table tennis.

The Taiwanese Embassy in Saint Lucia has disclosed plan to host a major table tennis festival here later this year.


  1. I hope Mr Matthews will reccomend that Vieux Fort get a few tables, accessories and coaches as well..
    Vieux Fort once had a decent table tennis culture!
    The VF parish hall produced some decent players at one time..
