Every Saturday between 13:00 and 16:00, we have our "Recreational Session" where players of all abilities are welcome.
This session is for doing anything you like which could range between having a knock-around to having a self-training session. All sessions are held in The Cube where we can get up to 8 tables out. The Cube is on Floor 2 of the Students' Union. There will be 2 Coaching Officers present at these sessions. Coaching Officer helps coach recreational players to help improve certain table tennis skills and techniques. It begins with a proper warm up followed by drills and occasionally multiball. The above sessions are open to all levels of experience and we are always looking for new members!
We also have two Men's teams and two Women's teams in the BUCS league which is an inter-university league. Matches for this league are always played on a Wednesday afternoon. For the team, we run a weekly "Training Session" coached by one of the best Level 3 coaches in Hampshire. Annually, we have a weekend away to the University of Nottingham to compete in the BUCS Nationals Individual Championships. Team training is invite-only and will typically be on Sundays between 12:00 and 15:00 in The Cube, though times may change due to our coach's availability and packing up early to allow time for COVID cleaners.
This year, we also have an additional session every Wednesday 16:00-18:00, also in the Cube.
Socials are on a regular basis so be sure to like our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/suttctabletennis/) to find out more!
