Girls in London will be inspired to make table tennis part of their lives at four girls-only festivals delivered in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation.

Table Tennis England’s Youth Participation Officer Lauren Evans will deliver the events at four London Premier Clubs during May:

  • Monday May 9: The Oaks TTC, Ealing
  • Tuesday May 17: Fusion TTC, Bermondsey
  • Monday May 23: Ellenborough TTC, Enfield
  • Tuesday May 24: Frenford Clubs, Ilford.

Each Festival will involve up to 35 girls from local schools and youth clubs.

Table Tennis England has a strategic priority to improve access to the sport for women and girls and is working with the Jack Petchey Foundation in London and Essex to help achieve this aim.

We are also making it easier for clubs to reach out to women and girls and engage them in regular sessions. We have launched a ‘top tips’ document to help clubs deliver these sessions – click here to find out more and request a download of the document.
