Why the people of table tennis are so important to the sport.

The people of table tennis; including coaches, volunteers and officials are the life-blood of our sport. Without these important people who give their time generously, and often quietly without looking for thanks or recompense, many clubs, leagues, competitions and other table tennis opportunities wouldn’t be available.

We believe that coaching is fundamental to players of all levels who are looking to improve. The player-coach relationship is a very special one that must be nurtured and supported.
At every level, table tennis would not even exist, let alone thrive and grow, without the army of volunteers working countless hours every week. But we need more of every age group and geographical spread.
Many of our tournaments depend on qualified officials. These are the volunteers who give their time to organise competitions and umpire matches.
