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 Sunday between 12:00 and 14:00, 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.

Every Saturday, we run a "Development Session" which are training sessions where members of the team coach recreational players to help improve certain table tennis skills and techniques. It begins with a proper warm up followed by drills and multiball. The time of these sessions are 20:00 until 22:00 and it is in the Activities Room which can only accommodate 4 tables (unfortunately).

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 10:00 and 12:00 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, saving at least £110. The membership prices 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 than via the society email.
