Brighton Table Tennis Club – Registered Charity Number 1160103
BRIGHTON TABLE TENNIS CLUB
the home of brighton table tennis since 2007
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. It has grown from a club with two broken old tables to an umbrella organisation overseeing over 100 Tables across the city and hundreds of people playing the fantastic sport of Table Tennis.
Both Tim & Harry felt that Table Tennis could be used as a powerful tool in engaging young people and transforming lives. Over eight years they have shown this to be true. The club has a fantastic track record of working with young people and with charitable status being granted in January 2015, the club has 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.”
We have a team in the Senior British League, eight teams in Brighton League and many Junior teams playing in various competitions.
In September 2015 the club moved to an amazing new premises, the building that used to be The St John the Baptist primary school. The new club address is – Brighton Table Tennis Club, The Fitzherbert’s Centre, 36 Upper Bedford Street, Kemptown, Brighton, BN2 1JP
