Pride of Table Tennis Awards and Criteria

Your nomination will put your nominated individual in contention to win a National Award.

What are the Pride of Table Tennis Awards?

The Pride of Table Tennis Awards celebrate and honour the immense contribution volunteers make to our sport by recognising and rewarding their efforts each year. Volunteers are the heartbeat of table tennis and without them, our great sport would not be able to flourish and grow.

The Pride of Table Tennis Awards gives you the opportunity to nominate volunteers for their valuable, outstanding and often unseen contributions they have given to the sport over the last 12 months.

How it works

Pride of Table Tennis works on a two-year cycle. This year’s awards are in the first cycle, with two stages.

First, local clubs and leagues will honour their volunteers and young volunteers. Table Tennis England will send a certificate to the nominator to present at your club or league alongside celebrating your nominees nationally on our online platforms.

A judging panel will then decide from the local nominations who will be shortlisted for the national stage of the awards.

These will be presented at the Centenary dinner to be held in March 2022.
