Welcome to Stowmarket Table Tennis Club
Stowmarket Table Tennis Club
Situated in the centre of Suffolk, we are a friendly table tennis club with something to offer all those interested in table tennis, whatever your age or standard including:
- general practice or social playing for all
- a separate session for the over 50’s
- coaching for Junior or Adult age groups, or
- competition in one of three divisions in a local league.
We provide a number of different sessions each week at two venues – see our current programme below for further details.
STTC Sessions - Covid-19 update> 19 July 2021
'Normal' sessions resumed
Following the ending of government restrictions, we can now operate ‘normal’ sessions with no restriction on numbers.
This means you do not have to book but, for the next few weeks, just so we can keep a check on numbers, it would be helpful if you could email us if you are intending to attend.
If the guidance changes or we are overwhelmed we may need to reinstate some system.
Despite the dropping of restrictions, given the current reality of the ‘third wave’, we would still recommend that person to person contact such as handshaking is avoided as much as possible, and try to keep a safe distance. We will no longer be cleaning tables between back to back sessions, but hand sanitiser will be available and we will keep the halls ventilated. Wearing masks will be at the discretion of the individual.
Double jabs do not eliminate transmission of the virus. If you have been showing any Covid symptoms please do not attend.
Tables will be available for singles and doubles
See Playing Sessions below for full details
The times below will be applicable due to Covid-19 restrictions.
We expect to return to open sessions from 19th July, as per the government's updated 'roadmap'
