Today we launch seven new homepages on this website – one for each of our Area Networks – so you can see how Table Tennis United is being delivered in your Area.

All seven Area Networks have now appointed Area Chairs to work alongside Area Managers to start delivering the pledges of Table Tennis United.

So that you can read more about the work of the Area Managers and their respective Local Organising Groups, each Area now has its own homepage on this website.

These pages will be a one-stop shop for clubs, counties, leagues, players and coaches with the latest news, activity, competitions, courses and funding opportunities within each respective Area.

The pages will also have the details of the Area Manager so the table tennis community can access that local support when needed, as well as the members of their Local Organising Group and the Area Chair.

The coming months will see the homepages continually enhanced and developed as Area Managers update the table tennis community through news items, blogs, vlogs and other pieces, sharing good practice, good news and resources to further help and develop the table tennis community.

You will also be able to see a summary of Area activity through the new Area Digest, which will be released in February and go out to all subscribers regularly. This will be your one-stop shop to things that have happened in your Area and upcoming events and activities.

Andrew Wilesmith, Head of Table Tennis Development said: “The establishment of localised web pages on the Table Tennis England website is an important step in providing a greater reach and greater support for our clubs, counties and leagues.

“It will provide more prominence to the great work happening locally. It will make it easier for people to see what’s happening in their Area, including courses, competitions and events and make it easier for the table tennis community to engage with and seek support from the Area Manager and Area Chair.

Table Tennis United is about taking table tennis to where people are and the Area Network is fundamentally about creating local support and capacity to grow the sport, so we want to enable the table tennis community to know the great work and opportunities happening locally.”

During this launch period we are keen to hear your feedback on the usability and content of the Area pages so we can improve them and make them work for you. So please let us know your feedback once you have visited and help us make this space work for you.
