It’s Volunteers’ Week (1st-7th June) and we would like to say thank you to those that give up their time every week supporting the sport of table tennis.

There are hundreds of dedicated, committed people who volunteer to make table tennis happen every day, giving endless hours of their time. Without them the sport just wouldn’t be the same.

As well as helping run clubs and leagues all over the country, dozens dedicate their time to helping Table Tennis England run competitions.

This year in particular we had an unprecedented number of people volunteer as we held the ITTF Team World Cup in London.

Over 100 volunteers gave up their time to help out, clocking up an astonishing 3,005 hours.

As well as thanking current volunteers, Table Tennis England is hoping that Volunteer Week helps inspire more people to get involved.

Carol Miles, Competitions and Events Manager, said:

Volunteers’ Week provides us with a perfect opportunity to once more thank those volunteers who have given up their time for table tennis over the past year.

It also gives us the chance to reach out to those individuals who may want to volunteer in the future.

We’re always on the lookout for volunteers to help with our events across the country – whether it’s helping to set up before the event opens, or ensuring it runs smoothly as soon as play begins.
