Table Tennis

Come down to try out table tennis - it's a great way to meet new people! We welcome everyone, whether it be your first time picking up a racket or if you're a seasoned professional, we'll be sure to have someone for you to play against.

You're welcome to bring friends along too to finally settle who's better at table tennis. We will provide all equipment so make sure not to miss out! For more info, updates, pictures and videos, like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/suttctabletennis/.


About Table Tennis

Every Saturday between 13:00 and 15:00, 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. This session is held in The Cube where we can get up to 8 tables out. The Cube is on Floor 2 of the Students' Union.

Just before the Recreational Session (so on Saturdays), we run a "Development Session" which are training sessions where the 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 time of these sessions are 11:00 until 13:00 and they are also in The Cube.

Both 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 14:00 in The Cube, though times may change due to our coach's availability.

Socials are on a regular basis so be sure to like our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/suttctabletennis/) to find out more!

Finally, we want to stress that you do NOT need Sport & Wellbeing membership to be part of SUTTC (unless you're a team member), saving at least £99 compared to almost every other sport. The membership prices for our club are stated below in the Membership Fee Information section.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Contact via the Facebook page is preferable over our society email, as you will receive a faster response.
