London & Essex Schools Table Donation Scheme

Information about the London & Essex Schools Table Donation Scheme

London & Essex Schools Table Donation Scheme

The Jack Petchey Foundation Table Donation Scheme provides a generous opportunity for schools looking to grow table tennis participation amongst young people, during and after school hours.

The Scheme offers the donation of indoor and outdoor table tennis tables together with an equipment and resource pack (indoor tables only) worth thousands of pounds. Successful applicants will also have exclusive access to free teacher and young leader training courses* and competitions.

Open to state secondary schools, colleges and academies across London and Essex it gives young people the opportunity to try something new, learn new skills and most importantly have fun!

Applicants can chose from an indoor package and/or an outdoor package. All successful applicants will be asked to make a small contribution towards the package of their choice.

Please note that 2018 applications are now closed. We hope to be able to bring a new round of table donations in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation in Spring 2019. To register your interest in future opportunities, please email schools@tabletennisengland.co.uk.

The scheme is open to state secondary schools, colleges and academies in Essex and London (within the 33 London Boroughs) and is aimed at those with no or very few existing tables but which are looking to grow participation and offer table tennis opportunities. Schools with tables or have been donated tables within the scheme before can also apply and their application will be reviewed on how effectively the existing tables have been used and what further opportunities would be available if successful. There is also the opportunity to purchase tables at a heavily subsidised rate or express an interest in becoming a Jack Petchey Table Tennis Academy.

To apply, all you have to do is complete a short application form telling Table Tennis England about your school and how table tennis is thriving, or has the potential to do so, amongst young people. Tables will be awarded to schools where the assessing panel feel would make the biggest impact to participation.
