The new-look Pride of Table Tennis Awards are launched today – so now is the time to honour the unsung heroes who help to make our sport great.

We know there are hundreds of devoted and deserving volunteers out there, people who invest their time and skills to make sure we can all achieve and enjoy in table tennis.

So, we are asking clubs and leagues all over the country to present their own Club or League Volunteer of the Year and their Young Volunteer of the Year awards to someone who has gone ‘above and beyond’ in the past 12 months.

Everyone who is honoured in this way at local level will receive a certificate from Table Tennis England and will be put forward for the national awards – the winners of both categories will be guests of honour and receive their awards at the Senior National Championships over the weekend of February 28-March 1.

We will also be surprising some of the local winners by choosing them at random to receive special ‘table tennis experiences’ or prizes, such as a weekend away at the Nationals with overnight stay, the chance to train with England coaches or players, or a spa break.

Nominations close at 5pm on Wednesday 18th December, 2019

This is the first year of the new two-year cycle of the Pride of Table Tennis Awards, which in the first year seeks to focus on the Club/League Volunteer of the Year and Young Volunteer of the Year awards.

In the second year of the cycle, starting in the 2020/21 season, local clubs and leagues will again honour their volunteers and young volunteers.

There will also be a regional stage of the awards, into which all local nominees will be forwarded, alongside nominations in other key categories.

The national stage of the awards will then feature the full range of Pride of Table Tennis Awards, including those for coaches, officials, clubs, leagues and inclusivity – and of course featuring the Blue Riband Volunteer of the Year and Young Volunteer of the Year.

These will be presented at a gala dinner to be held at the National Conference in the first half of the year.
