Welcome to the home of Brighton Table Tennis
Brighton Table Tennis Club exists to provide role models to support the personal development of young people, instil a life-long love for Table Tennis and build a strong community.
Brighton Table Tennis Club – Registered Charity Number 1160103
Brighton Table Tennis Club was founded in February 2007 by Tim Holtam & Harry McCarney, two keen ex-international Table Tennis players who wanted to share their love of the sport with local disadvantaged young people in Brighton.
The club’s ethos is that Table Tennis can be used as a powerful tool in engaging young people and transforming lives. Over eight years we have shown this to be true, the club has a fantastic track record and with charitable status being granted in January 2015, big plans for development and expansion.
Councillor and former mayor Bill Randall, now a trustee at Brighton Table Tennis Club describes it as “One of the city’s brightest sporting lights. It helps people from many communities and all ages keep fit and well and brings them together to offer mutual support and friendship.”
It has grown from a club with two broken old tables to an umbrella organisation overseeing over one hundred Tables across the city and hundreds of people playing the fantastic sport of Table Tennis.
Brighton Youth Centre is our home, we also have strong links with Patcham High School, Longhill School, Varndean School, Patcham Junior School, Elm Grove Primary School, Brighton and Sussex Universities, the Grace Eyre Foundation for Adults with Learning Disabilities and many other organisations promoting inclusive sport for all. We are always expanding and looking for new players.
We currently have a team in the Senior British League, eight teams in Brighton League and many Junior teams playing in various competitions.
There are many places and opportunities to play Table Tennis in and around Brighton. For players of all ages and abilities.
