ITTF-Oceania is excited to announce that Simon Gerada will be commentator for the 2017 ITTF-Oceania Cup.

Gerada, an Oceania champion almost two decades ago, has seen both sides of the court; as an Olympian and as a coach to numerous Australian representatives. Now he has stepped away from the high-performance coaching scene and is looking to bring a healthy dose of perspective to ITTF-Oceania events.

“The region now has many opportunities to capitalise on; I’m interested how Oceania athletes will progress on the world stage.”

Gerada will be providing commentary at the region’s tentpole event and will be looking to give a unique brand of court side analysis. He won’t be holding back and will be praising the players and pulling apart their games in equal measure. This will not be your regular colour commentary.

“This is Oceania’s biggest event, so you better turn up ready.”

Stay tuned over the coming days as Simon Gerada will be sharing his insights in to the player’s preparations and their chances to take the title.
