What is said or seen, is only a fraction of what is actually done! Eli Baraty
It all began with a film called Forrest Gump, back in the year 1996, I had decided there and then that Table Tennis would play a huge part in my life.
I started the journey at a small table tennis club located in Hendon (north-west London). The club coach and manager was a middle-aged gentleman called Harold Ismaan. He coached me the basic strokes; rules of the game alongside backhand and forehand and introduced me to local league. From the small club that had 4 butterfly tables, I progressed to another club called London Progress, at the time England’s leading table tennis club. There I quickly developed my game by watching many of England’s best players and top coaches (at the time). I decided to continue growing as a player and felt I needed more, this led me to one of Europe’s best tennis de table club in (France).
As a Table Tennis Player, I Dreamed of Becoming World Champion One Day!
