‘Busy Bees’ is specifically for young players, aged 5-8, and offers a great way to introduce children to table tennis by playing games and having fun.

These sessions are open to children aged 8-16 who wish to master their table tennis skills, have fun and do more exercise after school.

Intermediate Adult & league players

These are structured sessions with match play at the end and run by three or four coaches.  Players are split into groups depending on skill level.

The emphasis of this group is to have fun and enjoy the sport with like-minded members. An ideal starting point for anyone returning to the sport.
