General introduction

IIT Mandi supports Table tennis at professional and personal entertainment level, almost every hostel has its own TT table for the students to play and encourage sports. For professional level sport, we have 2 Table Tennis Halls (one in the North campus and the other in the South Campus), each with 3 tables. Thus, most people play this game even if it is just for fun. Dr. S.N. Jha handles things at the faculty level and provides training to the students. He has been working in the Physical Education section at IIT Bombay for over 30 years. At present, he is in charge of the students' activity center as the Principal Sports Officer of IIT Mandi. At the student level, 2 coordinators handle things related to the sport.

Students who are a part of the college Table Tennis team practice daily for at least 1.5-2 hrs. The daily schedule begins with warm-up exercises followed by practicing of various shots. Regular practice matches are also conducted. For fitness and agility, students make sure that they do regular conditioning exercises. All the team members also take part in the summer camp which happens annually at IIT Mandi. The summer camp helps to improve one's fitness level.
