Table Tennis is for all ages across the board, and is a fun and energetic sport. It is a great socially interactive game.
Table Tennis is a very popular sport within the club and most nights of the week are taken up with matches and club play. We have a good number of players, but always welcome new additions to the team.
The club now has three teams in the top flight of the Aldershot and District Table Tennis League which is more than at any other time in our history. We also have one side in Division 2, two sides in Division 3 and 4 respectively.
Home League matches are played Monday to Thursday evenings starting at 7.15 pm.
There is table tennis coaching for the youngsters on Friday night from 6.30pm – 7.30pm. The sessions are for children who are complete beginners all the way through to children that have played before, or for those who simply wish to improve their game. For more information visit the Coaching Page – Table Tennis section – click here.
A club night is also held on Fridays after the coaching from 7.30pm, for those who prefer to play in a less competitive environment, or who just fancy coming down for a chat, cake & a cup of tea.
For more information or any questions regarding Table Tennis, please contact Paul Myers.

Did you know?
Table tennis, also known as ping pong, is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight ball back and forth across a table using a small bat. The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net. Except for the initial serve, the rules are generally as follows: players must allow a ball played toward them to bounce one time on their side of the table, and must return it so that it bounces on the opposite side at least once. A point is scored when a player fails to return the ball within the rules. Play is fast and demands quick reactions. Spinning the ball alters its trajectory and limits an opponent’s options, giving the hitter a great advantage.
