After various lockdowns due to Covid, we restarted in December 2021 and now meet most Wednesdays 1830-2030. The charge is £1 for children and £2 for adults and we prefer payment via our card/contactless machine. New players, including beginners are very welcome and we have plenty of bats to borrow.

A little bit of background and history of the club..
The Stradbroke Table Tennis Club started in Sept 2007 with 12 members. Back then we usually met on a Tuesday evening to play friendly games of table tennis. The club grew to a maximum of 38 members in 2012/13 with many youngsters from the High School joining. In the beginning we had three tables and only seven bats, but with the growth in membership we have been able to afford new equipment and can boast of 5 tables and eighteen bats. In reality many players bring their own bats so there is always one available for beginners and those who don’t own one. As a sports club we must have one of the widest age ranges for a club in the region spanning nearly 70 yrs. Our youngest is 7 and the oldest has been 76.
Table Tennis is a great sport for all the family and we are always pleased to see new players coming along. Our “season” runs from September to April with some occasional summer sessions for those interested. Normally there are other outdoor pursuits that take up people’s time and it is an opportunity for members and organisers to take a break during the summer.
You are welcome to just turn up or for more information, feel free to get in touch with Mark or Julia Nowell.
