If you are aged 14 to 23 and passionate about an active life, you could help Table Tennis England shape the future of our sport.

We are looking for up to 12 young people to become our first set of Young Ambassadors.

It is a fantastic chance to influence the future direction of table tennis, learn new skills, play a part at our major events and add great experience to your CV!

Members of the group could come from within table tennis or from outside the sport – the most important thing is for members to share their passion for sport in general and help table tennis to grow.

The Young Ambassadors group will meet at least three times a year and will:

  1. Represent the views and be the voice of young people
  2. Act as ambassadors and role models for the sport
  3. Advise Table Tennis England on programmes and campaigns targeted at young people
  4. Help Table Tennis England communicate and inspire other young people
  5. Explore topics and ideas on behalf of Table Tennis England

Young Ambassadors will also be invited to key events in the Table Tennis England calendar, will receive travel expenses and branded kit, and have lots of opportunities to learn new skills and make new friends.

Caroline Howkins, Children & Young People Manager at Table Tennis England, said: “We’re really excited about this project. Young people are the future of the sport and it’s vital to listen to their ideas and harness their energy and enthusiasm so that we can develop the sport in ways which are relevant to them.

“This really is a great opportunity to help us deliver our Children and Young People strategy – and to influence the future direction of the sport in other areas too.”

Below is a link to how you can get involved. But first, have a listen to why one of our leading young players, National Champion and Commonwealth Games medallists Tin-Tin Ho, is backing the Young Ambassadors!
