You can now register and apply for tickets to the Table Tennis England Centenary Gala Dinner.

This season marks 100 years since our sport came under the umbrella of a national governing body. To celebrate the occasion, we will be hosting a glittering fundraising Centenary Gala Dinner to celebrate our rich history, remembering the major events, honouring the important personalities of the past, and also sharing thoughts on the future.

The dinner is on Sunday 27th March 2022 at the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.

To provide everyone within the table tennis community with an opportunity to secure tickets for this event, Table Tennis England has introduced a Member Ticket Ballot to provide current and previous members with a fair chance of attending. Entry does not automatically entitle applicants to tickets for the Centenary Gala Dinner, but to a place in the draw for tickets.

This star-studded evening to mark 100 years of English table tennis will feature a drinks reception, a three-course dinner with wine, special centenary and guest speeches, awards, plus a silent and live auction. It promises to be an evening to remember and as the event is in support of the Table Tennis England Centenary Legacy Fund, attendees will be helping to raise vital funds to improve access, facilities and opportunities in our sport.
