Edgar Berridge officially was elected as new president of the Dominica Table Tennis Association (DTTA) on Saturday November 19, 2016, along with a new executive.
The new executive comprises: Edgar Berridge, President; Wanito Aaron, Vice President; Melinda Seraphin, Secretary; Gem Eloi, Treasurer; Dane Taylor, Assistant Treasurer; Jordan Jerome, Public Relations Officer; and three committee members, Cornelius Timothy, Eloi and Gabriel Thomas.
Berridge was grateful to have been elected president. He thanked all of the people who had confidence in him, and nominated him to run for the President of the Association.
He said being a president as well as a coach isn’t easy, and he will therefore need the help of the members of the executive.
He added “I am going to put my best foot forward. You all know that table tennis is my love, it’s my passion, and all I want to see is our passion, table tennis, develop”.
He continued, “I believe we have a strong executive board that can really help table tennis to go somewhere. But I want the other executive members to remember that it cannot me done by myself alone. I’m a player, I’m a coach, and now I’m president. It has to be done by all of us working together. It’s a really difficult thing to run an association, especially one like table tennis, where we have so many kids involved”.
Berridge acknowledged that the sport was “down for a while in Dominica”, but promised that the new executive will put their best foot forward, to ensure that table tennis regains its former status”.
