Applications for the position of Table Tennis England Chairman are open, with elections for three Elected Deputy Chairmen to follow in the coming months.

As laid down in the Government’s Code for Sports Governance, the Chairman must be appointed by the Board following an open and transparent application process.

That process is now open and more details can be downloaded from the bottom of this page, or from our Election page by clicking here.

The closing date is March 27, after which a shortlist will be drawn up by the Nominations Committee, which comprises three independent Directors (Mark Quartermaine, Andrew Nixon and Dee Paterson) and Elected Directors Susie Hughes and Keith Thomas. Interviews will be held on April 4.

A recommended candidate will then be put forward to the Board, with the intention of announcing an appointment in mid-May. The Chairman takes office for a four-year period at the end of the AGM on June 29, 2019.
