Schools Competitions

Table Tennis England organises schools competitions under the title 'English Schools Table Tennis'

** Please note, the Butterfly National Schools Team Championship and Butterfly National Schools Individual Championships have been cancelled for the 2020/21 season because of the pandemic. If you have any queries, please contact [email protected]

The competition pathway for schools in England is organised by Table Tennis England as part of its wider competition structure.

Under the title English Schools Table Tennis, there are two National Schools Competitions – one for teams and the other for individuals.

Fifty-one Schools County Associations affiliated to Table Tennis England hold qualifying events in their counties across England. The winners then represent their schools counties in the Butterfly National Schools Competitions.

These competitions build upon the outstanding work of the English Schools Table Tennis Association which for 50 years organised the above events until it merged with Table Tennis England in 2017 and then dissolved itself in 2018.
