Facility grant schemes

Could you get more people playing if your club or league had more tables? Is your club or league considering a facility development? Table Tennis England has club focused capital facilities funding of over £250,000 this financial year (2015/16) and additional funds to support the purchase of new tables. The schemes include a dedicated multi-table club/facility fund and a club upgrade fund. To find out more about these schemes including eligibility and how to apply, click here

Ability Club Support Scheme

Helping clubs to recruit more members and encourage more people with disabilities to play table tennis, this scheme for our affiliated clubs offers grants, resources, ideas and advice to help clubs deliver activity for those with disabilities. To find out more and how to apply, click here

Loop at work

If your club members would like a table in their workplace and the opportunity to encourage colleagues to play our great sport, help is at hand. Table Tennis England is offering workplaces the chance to have a heavily subsidised table, equipment and resource pack giving everything they need to get people playing at work. To find out more, watch the loop at work promotional video and see the first set of available product options, starting at £160 for a table package visit our new Loop website www.keepintheloop.co.uk

National Table Tennis Day

A chance to celebrate your love of table tennis, raise the profile of the sport and encourage more people to get involved. Table Tennis England would love you to join the fun on National Table Tennis Day. We are inviting schools, clubs, leagues, supporting partners and venues to run an event of their choice and to celebrate the sport.
