    The playing days are still far from over. Werner Schlager from
    Austria ‘ celebrated world champion in Men’s singles 2003 in Paris,
    will most certainly continue to delight Table Tennis fans all over the
    world with his unique and smart style of play the coming years.

    Having said that, it is also clear that the Austrian star player has
    other priorities in life keeping him busy. Recently he stayed at home
    from the World Championships in Yokohama for family reasons and these
    days he is busy with another project carrying his name ; The Werner
    Schlager Academy.

    Huge Project
    The WSA
    project is not, by any means, small stuff in the Table Tennis world. If
    promise comes to reality, the center carrying Schlager signum will be
    magnificent when it opens in brand new facilities, just outside Vienna
    early next year. Initial reports are talking some forty practice tables
    and residential arrangements very closely connected.

    Coaching Rumors
    Rumors
    out there is also swirling when it comes to potential coaches ready to
    join the WSA. Mario Amizic ‘ the well know Croatian coaching whiz is
    most certainly one of them and the Swedish Junior National Coach Tomas
    Von Scheele is another big name mentioned lately.

    Opening Camp in Maria Alm
    This
    week the small city of Maria Alm some 80 km outside of Salzburg got its
    first taste of Werner and his new project. An impressive troop of
    international guests, national team caliber players and local talents
    gathered Monday for an intense opening of the Werner Schlager on tour
    training camp series.

    Full Action
    Full
    action on eighteen tables, three daily training sessions and plenty of
    other good training initiatives has been on display during the week.
    The ITTF caught up with one of the most experienced coaches in
    attendance ; The Danish National Coach Peter Sartz to get a full review.

    "I
    have to say that I am quite impressed Peter said. First of all the
    conditions are great and this is indeed a beautiful place to stage a
    camp ‘ even the weather has been cooperating with damp and rainy week
    keeping the players fully focused on Table Tennis activities.

    Impressive Intensity
    Also when it comes to technical matters the Danish head coach had praise on his mind.

    ‘Impressive
    intensity and quality I must say! Werner himself has been very active
    getting personally involved with all the players in the camp , if he
    can keep the project running with the same quality moving forward the
    WSA center will I am sure become a sough after place to practice
    explained Peter Sartz. My players have certainly benefitted from a wide
    range of sparring partners and we are interested to come back for sure’
