Following compliance with the government, Table Tennis Wales and Swansea University under the guidance of NHS Wales, the committee is working very hard to ensure that every measure and protocol is in place, so you have nothing to worry about! Table tennis Sessions have just started back up as of May 2021, and will be running until 18th June 2021. Hope you can join us next year.
Who are we?
At Swansea University Table Tennis Club we offer the opportunity for everyone to play Table Tennis. if you are an experienced player, high-performance player, or are just here for fun, we have something to offer you.
We plan Social table tennis sessions and plenty of social (often non-alcoholic *wink wink*) events that will be cropping up every two weeks or so. Including games such as beer pong, round-the-world, mini-tournaments, Giant pong, and others- all of which will become quite familiar to you soon. Guaranteed fun, friends and cool tricks to be made regardless of your ability. Look out on our social media.
We also have a High-performance training programme in place. Our experienced Head-coach is paid for by Sports Swansea to provide international-class training, which is also on display while he coaches the Welsh international squad for TTW. Our men's First- and women's team were just a couple points away from promotion to BUCS premier league last year, and the Men's seconds have taken a solid position in Division 2. We have also attained impressive positions at The BUCS individual Championships. Team positions have only been improving, and there are no signs of stopping!! (except for covid...) At least 4 hours of training is provided per week, as well as opportunities to play in BUCS, Welsh championships, and local Swansea leagues.
