The Table Tennis Club continues to go from strength to strength. Notable recent achievements include the W1s becoming BUCS National Champions 2017/18 and the M1s winning the Northern Conference Cup. The club has four women’s teams and three men’s competing in BUCS leagues and competitions.

The club welcomes players from a wide range of current abilities, from experienced players to those who are less experienced but want to improve their game. All members will receive weekly Development Squad coaching with the opportunity to join the Main Squad as their ability grows. Main Squad players receive professional coaching from Matt Porter, an ETTA Level 3 coach and winner of the prestigious Table Tennis England ‘Coach of the Year 2014’ award.

Training sessions run 5 times a week, at Hild Bede East Gym and Maiden Castle. Elite players are also offered weekly strength and conditioning sessions run by Team Durham. The club has a strong community feel with a commitment to inclusion and runs a variety of friendly socials, while maintaining a close link with college table tennis.

Trials for those interested in joining the club will be taking place in the Hild Bede East Gym on Sunday 7th October, 12:30-17:00. They will be relaxed and welcoming so please do come along if you are considering playing next year.
