During his time at Primary School, local table tennis star never knew that he would be one of the best Ping Pong players In Botswana right now. At that time, Mabote’s mind was on Karate, which he joined in Primary School.

He was a karate kid before dropping it after his first year at Tlhomo Community Junior Secondary School in kanye. That was when he changed and decided to play Table Tennis.

Despite joining the Table Tennis club at Tlhomo CJSS very late, it did not take long before he broke into the school team. Before he knew it, Mabote was one of the best players at his school and won many prizes through Table Tennis.  He continued to play Table Tennis at Seepapitso Senior School. “When I arrived at Seepapitso, I knew that unlike at junior school, there were many sports codes which I could choose, but I decided to continue with table Tennis because I had now fallen in love with it.
