Tennis Tavolo San Polo
Tennistavolo S. Polo was born in 1987 thanks to a small group of friends who were 18 years old at that time all living in Colorno. The team began his activity as “TT Colorno” and until 1993 made his training and competitions in sportshall of that village.
The most important person who made this team rising and developping is without any doubt Mr. Alessandro Sernesi who’s the President since the year of foundation.
Between 1994 and 2008 the little club moved to San Polo di Torrile, a village very close to Colorno and a little closer to Parma where it found better facilities for trainings and to play matches and changed his name in RCSD San Polo In 2008 the team changes his name definitively and becomes ASD Tennistavolo San Polo and 3 years later there’s for the first time an exclusive training place for the club where it’s possible to use 5 tables h24/7 and this becomes crucial to intensify and develop skills of young and adult players. In September 2015 the club gets the great opportunity to move his activity in Parma , in the wonderful structure exclusive for table tennis in multisport hall “E. Negri”.
Actually the club has 60 members plus other 20 including kids and adults who just subscribed to “beginners courses” organised by team technical staff. During his long sportive life he gets a lot of success: 40 regional titles, more than 100 regional podiums in all categories plus 7 italian titles and 10 medals at italian championships. The society has 12 teams with 4 national leagues (B1 and C1 male league, B female league and A2 veterans) and owns the first place calculating teams subscribed to regional team competitions. The real strenght of the club is that it slowly grew up during years but in a very consistent way investing the biggest part of resources in making and developing a group of young players and an internal techinical staff, plus a huge and solid group of amateurs who can give a lot of stability and welcoming atmosphere to the club. The main goal of the club is promotion and developing of table tennis in Parma and its suburbans working directly in the territory with schools and other sportive structures. Italian table tennis is a paraolympic federation so another aim of the club is the inclusion of these social categories that now always can find a proper space between other federations.
Team technical staff is based on a head coach and 3 young and talented guys who grew in the club through years and now they daily work in the club to reach these goals.
