Table Tenis Club

I was the first born in our family but the one thing that I did not like was table tenis in my life. The I had about the organization my friend told me to join him so that if I face any problem they can help me. The coach told me to be going for the training for the holidays but I managed to be one of them. When my parents pased but I was left hoples I did not know how to start. For some two months I did my KCPE Examination and I did very well they came together and arranged how I would be helped. I was taken to the national school. they bought for me everything I needed. But for some few months I had already finished my KCSE I went to Nairobi University I graguated from their I was employed in the national bank.I am happy about the organization.
