Only 17% of table tennis coaches in England are female. Our ambition for gender parity within table tennis extends to ensuring that the sport’s workforce is evenly split between male and females.
We know from research that creating female only spaces can really enhance women and girls’ experiences in table tennis. To achieve this we have to increase the number of women and girls in visible roles; we need to increase the number of women in the table tennis workforce, which includes in coaching roles.
Therefore, for a limited time only we are offering a 50% discount on our Level 1 Session Coach qualification for women and girls to encourage more females to begin their journey on the coaching pathway and help us get one step closer to gender parity in table tennis.
The offer will end on the 17th March 2022 – take a look at available Level 1 courses here.
