Our Centenary Celebrations

Table Tennis England celebrates its Centenary on 7th November 2021.

Our Centenary heralds the 100th anniversary since our sport came under the umbrella of a national governing body – firstly in 1921 as the Ping Pong Association, then as the Table Tennis Association in 1922 and the English Table Tennis Association between 1927 and 2014, before our more recent rebranding as Table Tennis England in 2014.

This unique occasion in our lifetime not only presents a brilliant opportunity to celebrate the achievements and journey over the past 100 years but is also a time to focus on the future that lies ahead.

It provides an opportunity for us to remember the major events, to honour the important personalities of the past, but also to build a legacy, taking the opportunity to reinvigorate and refresh as we emerge from the pandemic.

Join us, as we take inspiration from our great past and signpost our future path.


Our Association. Our Sport.

Our Association, as we know it, means very different things to different people. We want players, coaches, officials, administrators and partners to get involved in our Centenary celebrations.
