Help for buying a van, so the youngsters at the club, can travel for the Youngsters National Circuit.

The campaign arises from the need for means of transport for the accompanying trips and transportation of my athletes, in the national circuit of Class A Table Tennis tournaments.

In the 2017/2018 season, I started a new project as a table tennis coach in a club in Vila Nova de Gaia, among some athletes already known to me from previous years, new hopes are emerging, kids between the ages of 10 and 17 which would form together with the rest, a group of athletes cohesive and with excellent interaction.

It's a group that worked hard but with limitations, financial and travel, and got some podiums in national tournaments, in district championships (Porto) and that leaves room for dreaming of encouraging results in the next season.

As a rule, the national circuit of qualifying tournaments for national ranking consists of A (highest scoring) and Class B tournaments, of which 6 (Class A) tournaments are essential, then we still have the National Championships, in which the head positions of series are defined according to the national ranking of each athlete, hence the importance of the Class A tournaments.

Last season, I had a lot of difficulties in traveling to national tournaments and championships, not having my own transportation, I was limited to the movement of some of the parents of some athletes in their cars, which was excellent for the conviviality and animation. despite this, sometimes I could not keep up with my athletes and worse, some athletes were unable to travel to the tournaments due to lack of transportation. The most common trips are the Vila Real, Lamego, Viseu, Vila do Conde, Condeixa a Nova and Seixal tournaments, as well as the National Championships, with a place not yet defined.

Buying a 7-seat or 5 + 2 van would be a fundamental acquisition for me and my athletes.

Help make these kids champions.

Budget and due dates

After some research and contacts, it was clear that it would be necessary to raise the sum of € 950 for the purchase of a van, to be added to some equity.

It would be a second-hand van, but in good condition, because the trips involve a good kilometers of road, which could carry between 5 to 7 people, with enough space for sports bags, a SW 5 + 2 van would be excellent.

Total pickup for minibuses: 950.00 €

Commissions: € 87.64

Total net: € 862.36

The deadline would be until October 14, 2018, because the season starts in mid-October.
