The Pride of Table Tennis Awards are just a few days away – and the shortlisted nominees have now been revealed.

Pride of Table Tennis is our annual celebration and honouring of those who give up their time to help people play table tennis, and who impact positively on people’s lives.

A total of 69 volunteers have already been honoured at local level this year and 37 received regional awards.

The national judging panel have released the shortlisted nominees in their respective categories for the national stage of the awards.

The winners will be revealed at the National Pride of Table Tennis Awards dinner at The Grange Tower Hotel, London, on Saturday 3rd March, during the PG Mutual National Championships.
