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 Elected Directors

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.

2021 Election

There will be an election for one Elected Director. The election will be carried out electronically by email.

The Returning Officer’s letter to Company Members giving full details and inviting nominations is reproduced here.

Nominations close on Thursday 15 April 2021.
