Women & Girls Ambassadors

How you can encourage other females to get into the game by becoming a Women and Girls Ambassador.

In 2019, the Female Ambassador programme was launched to raise the visibility of women and girls in all areas of the sport.

In addition to the Ambassador programme; aspiring coaches and those wishing to take their coaching to the next level have been given the opportunity to apply for bursaries to help them access a course. 

The Be TT programme has been key to support clubs and leagues to engage more women and girls in the sport. This includes supporting women to become licensed coaches, establishing coaching sessions to support more women to feed into clubs and local leagues and girls only coaching sessions to increase junior club members.

What is the Women and Girls Ambassador programme?

The purpose of this programme is to promote table tennis, encourage more women and girls to play the game and inspire them to take up other roles within the sport. We recognise the importance of amplifying the voice of women and girls in the table tennis community and ensure that decisions are informed by the people that it will impact.

The programme is important because it allows us to provide meaningful opportunities for women and girls to develop themselves and make positive change within the sport.

The objectives are to:

  • Increase the visibility of women and girls in table tennis.
  • Celebrate the diversity of women in the sport and the roles they do.
  • Create a network of women and girls, to help to create more opportunities.

Meet our current Women and Girls Ambassadors
I wanted to become an ambassador because I
wanted to encourage and show other women and girls how enjoyable the sport, can be and to encourage younger girls to start playing and develop a genuine love for the sport.
To anyone considering whether to get involved in table tennis I’d say a resounding ‘yes’. Like many things, you get more out by what you put in and can definitely make friendships that last a lifetime.

My aim is to gain my coaching qualification as I really want to inspire the next generation. I want to be able to show females out there especially black females that this is an arena we can be part of and be a success.
I will keep coaching and encouraging other women and girls to coach, being a good female role model is the best way to promote table tennis.

I hope to bring people into the sport where I can share my enthusiasm, especially focusing on bringing women into the game and empowering them with my knowledge.
I’ve been enjoying seeing people improve as a result of my coaching. I’ll be very happy if I can carry on helping others fulfil their potential.

I want to develop the Woman and Girls side of my TT and I am eager to help others with a disability get back to or have a go at TT.
I am a Level one table tennis coach as I am so passionate about the sport, I want to be able to bring that enjoyment to others too.

Table tennis has helped me communicate with people of all ages, abilities, and genders. The sport is so versatile and has shown me that anything is possible.
My advice to someone wanting to start getting involved in table tennis is to do it, find a club that is welcoming and has sessions for fun.
