Over the course of the Return to the Table Campaign (26th July – 26th September) we are offering FREE access to the online TT Activator Award which would usually cost £35.
This offer will only be accessible to members and will need a valid membership – renew or register for your membership here.
The online TT Activator workshop has been designed to provide all TT Activators with the tools to run fun and engaging activities in various playing environments. The workshop will provide you with the opportunity to learn the rules of table tennis, the basic technique and some fun and engaging game ideas. It will also give you some tips to ensure inclusivity, allowing everyone to participate regardless of their age, gender, health or ability.
The workshop is split into five modules covering;
- The basics of table tennis
- Multiplayer game ideas
- How to make sessions inclusive
- Evaluating sessions
- Summary including pathways for participants in table tennis
The workshop will take approximately an hour to complete.
The course is aimed at those looking to support their coaches in a club or looking to get into coaching and is open to anyone over the age of 13.
Once signed up, if you haven’t already got an account on TT Learning Zone you will receive an automated email with your username and password (please check junk mail). If you already have access to the TT Learning Zone then they can simply log in and click on the TT Activator workshop.
The Return to the Table campaign running this summer aims to get people back to playing, coaching, officiating and volunteering with confidence, passion and motivation. If you club or organisation would like to get involved, you can download the Return to the Table digital toolkit which contains lots of useful resources for re-engaging your community back to table tennis.
You can also join many others clubs and organisations in running a celebration event between 30th August to 13th September. We’re encouraging clubs, leagues, coaches and community venues to run their own open days, club competitions or any activity that can build confidence or motivate people to play, volunteer, coach or officiate. This could be something to foster the competitive spirit among those players who have returned, re-engage members who have not yet returned to the sport, or to encourage new players who took up table tennis at home during the pandemic to move into club play.
