Election Information

Find information on the voting process for company members.

In law Table Tennis England is a limited company, governed by the Companies Act 2006 and by its Articles of Association which are available on the website. These provide that each county association and local league is entitled to appoint a company member who (together with the directors) can vote:

  • at general meetings
  • for three directors who are titled Elected Deputy Chairmen.

A weighted voting system is used. The weighting used for general meetings is different from the one used for electing directors. The two systems are described below.

General Meetings

An Annual General Meeting is held in June or July each year. Extraordinary General Meetings can also be held if the need arises.

Routine items are decided by a show of hands but for contentious matters a poll may be demanded. In a poll:

  • A director receives one vote unit.
  • A local league representative receives one vote unit for each player member in their league.
  • A national councillor (as county representative) receives vote units equal to the sum of the vote units held by all the local leagues affiliated to their county association.

The Companies Act requires that some proposals (for example a proposal to amend the Articles) to achieve a 75% majority to pass.

Elected Deputy Chairmen

Three Elected Deputy Chairmen (who are directors of the Company) are chosen by  a ballot of company members every four years (2019, 2023 etc).

In this ballot:

  • A director receives one vote unit
  • A national councillor (as county representative) receives one vote unit
  • A representative of a local league with 30 or fewer teams receives two vote units
  • A representative of a local league with 31-100 teams receives four vote units
  • A representative of a local league with 101 or more teams receives six vote units.

For more information please see the Articles of Association section of the website.

Don Parker was elected as Elected Deputy Chairman in June 2020 to fill the vacancy caused by the sad death of Charlie Childs. Don will now serve on the Board of Directors until 2023.
