Performance Pathway

The Performance Pathway supports athletes with elite capability to compete on the international stage.

Aims & objectives

The England Performance Pathway’s objectives are:

  • To help English players find out what they are capable of and;
  • To support those athletes with the capablity to at least reach the top 20 in Europe by the time they are 18 (in order that they are sought by other clubs, nations and programmes).

How?

Table Tennis England will support players and coaches across the pathway in:

  • Performance Clubs;
  • Centres of Excellence (insert link);
  • National Centre for Excellence (Insert link)
  • National Squads; starting with the 9-13 all the way up to the
  • England Performance Squad

Other squads and programmes also have a big role to play in supporting the individual athlete journey through their pathway including:

  • Clubs;
  • Schools;
  • Regional Squads; and
  • International clubs

The support available in each part of the pathway way vary according to the needs of the players and the resources available but support will be deployed inline with the objective of helping English players find out what they are capable of.

The support will focus on developing the following trademarks as they are relevant to each part of the pathway through a PAC framework (Player, Athlete, Competition).
