Our membership categories and offers

More information about our membership offers for the 2021/22 season - and our different membership categories.

With indoor play for adults able to resume from May 17th, there will be opportunities for local leagues and 1* competitions to get up and running before the end of the season 2020/21 season.

Therefore, we are announcing details of two major membership offers – one for those members who have not renewed for the current 2020/21 season, and one for those who have.

Offer one

If you have NOT previously renewed your membership for 2020/21, play the rest of this season for free when you buy 2021/22 membership

This offer is for those who have NOT renewed their membership for the 2020/21 season but who were previously members; or for those who have never been a member of Table Tennis England.

If you renew any time between May 1st and July 31st 2021, your membership will continue through to July 31st, 2022. In other words, you will be able to play for free for the rest of this season, which ends on July 31st, 2021.

From May 1st, you can renew your membership through the TT Memberships (Sport:80) platform in the usual way, choosing your membership type and paying online. Click here to access TT Memberships.

To purchase your membership by telephone, call 01908 208860 and speak to one of our membership team who will assist you through the membership purchase. Lines opened at 9am on Tuesday May 4th.

If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]

Offer two

If you HAVE previously renewed your 2020/21 membership, get 50% off your membership fee for 2021/22

All those who HAVE already renewed their membership for this season (2020/21) will be offered an optional 50% discount on their basic membership for next season if they wish.

Anyone who is a valid Compete or Compete Plus Senior member for this season will be eligible to request an £8 discount on their membership for 2021/22. The discount would be £4 for Cadets and Juniors.

In order to take up this offer, simply let us know any time between now and when renewals open on July 19th 2021 by filling in the short form here. The discount will be applied to your account and you will receive confirmation when you renew your membership after renewals open on July 19th.

Why is this offer not automatic? Simply because many members have told us they want to give back to the sport and understand that their membership fee is one way to do that. Therefore, we are asking that members request a discount if they would like one.

Please note, those who upgrade from a free membership (Supporter or Club Play) to a paid-for category (Compete or Compete Plus) are not eligible for this offer. Those who wish to remain as free Supporter or Club Play members will need to renew as normal after July 19th.

If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]

Why have we introduced these offers?

These offers reflect the widespread disruption to the sport which our members have endured during the 2020/21 season because of the pandemic; the hope that the rest of this season and the 2021/22 season will see a shift back to a much more ‘normal’ sporting landscape; and a recognition that our work as a National Governing Body has continued throughout this time while our income has been substantially lower than budgeted.

Most importantly, we want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to get back to playing at the earliest opportunity, and to thank our members for their continued support.

It has already been announced that there will be no increase in membership fees for the fourth year in a row. Compete membership is £16 for Seniors and £8 for Cadets or Juniors. Compete Plus membership is set at £38 for adults and £19 for Juniors or younger. Club Play continues to be free for 2021/22.

Please note, further to the extension of the Junior age group to under-19, announced last month, those currently in their final year as a Junior will continue in that category for the 2021/22 season.
