Governance Review

Table Tennis England has committed to produce a wide-ranging and thorough Review into the governance and structures of Table Tennis England.

What is it?

Table Tennis England has committed to produce a wide-ranging and thorough Review into its governance and structures, with an aim to achieve a modernised, professional, transparent organisation that balances the need for democracy and a volunteer workforce at its heart.

A Governance Review Group (GRG) and an Independent Review Panel (IRP) will report periodically to the Board, which in turn will provide updates to National Council and the wider membership.

Central to the Review will be the opportunity for any individual member, club or league to be part of the consultation process so that all views can be taken into account.

Governance Review Group (GRG)

The Governance Review Group is the Board sub-group which will oversee the process, procedure and timetable of the review.

The GRG is chaired by Senior Independent Director Mark Quartermaine and also includes Table Tennis England Chairman Sandra Deaton and Chief Executive Sara Sutcliffe, plus the Chair of National Council Tony Catt and the Chair of Rules Committee’s delegate Estyn Williams.

Independent Review Panel (IRP)

The Independent Review Panel (IRP) will lead the Review.

IRP members’ skills include governance, legal, membership bodies, communications, different NGB structures and table tennis.

The first stage of selection process for the IRP was to recruit an Independent Review Panel Chair, Marc Mazzucco. Following an open recruitment process, the rest of the panel, which includes three individuals from within the sport, was named.

Open Consultation

The first stage of the open consultation process has now closed and the scope of the Review has now been amended based on feedback.

The full consultation process for the Review will be established with the chair of the IRP in due course.
