About the Club

Image

We are a community led club based at the Stowupland High School Sports Centre on the outskirts of Stowmarket, and we aim to attract members both male and female of all ages and abilities. Our current membership totals about 90 and we are still growing, in particular our sport is proving popular with the increasing numbers of junior members.


We provide a number of different sessions each week, see our current programme below for further details. Some of these sessions are at our second venue - St Peter's Church Hall in the centre of Stowmarket.


Coaching is available for all standards from a number of Table Tennis England qualified coaches. If you are interested in becoming a coach, please let us know and we can probably help out.


The Club has a total of 5 teams entered in the Bury St Edmunds and District Table Tennis League, teams in the Suffolk and Cambridge Border League and also teams in the National Cadet Leagues

Playing programme (From 9th September 2016)

The club is open five days each week, three times at Stowupland and twice at St Peter's, during the playing season. There is a slightly reduced programme throughout the summer months, but we aim to continue throughout the year catering for all ages and abilities.
