Coach Licence Scheme

The Table Tennis England Coach Licence Scheme is a register of more than 600 coaches that we are confident are active and knowledgeable in current coaching methods. It aims to establish a kite mark for the coaching of table tennis in England and to support the professional development of active coaches.

All coaches registered on the Coach Licence Scheme receive up to £10 Million Public Liability insurance as well as benefiting from discounts and offers exclusive to our coaches.

Any newly qualified coach (UKCC Level 1 only) will receive a complimentary Table Tennis England Coach Licence until the next renewal period.

First Aid

First aid qualifications are advisory for all coaches but not a requirement for your coach licence to be active.

Table Tennis England advise that all coaches working on their own should hold a First Aid certificate updated every 3 years. There should also be a coach with a First Aid certification at every session undertaken. However, every coach does not necessarily need to have a First Aid certification in place if, when they coach, other coaches at the session hold their First Aid certification.

St John’s Ambulance courses
Valid for 3 years


British Red Cross courses
Valid for 3 years


CSP first aid courses
Valid for 3 years


If you have completed first aid training from another provider then please contact Table Tennis England to verify the status of your qualification.


How to evidence my pre-requisites?

Please upload a copy of your certificate onto the Coaching Portal.  If you experience any problems please email or call 01908 208876.
