About Mark Bates Ltd

Mark Bates Ltd was founded in 1994, following a successful number of years underwriting warranty for the technology industry. From humble beginnings in Mark’s garage, the business has grown to be market leaders in a number of areas (including Mobility and Home Employment insurance), with a workforce totalling nearly 100 people at its Lincolnshire headquarters.

Managing Director Mark Bates will be well known to many Table Tennis England members as the father of two age group national champions – Emily and Michael. Emily won a raft of singles and doubles titles from Under-10s to Juniors, including beating Tin-Tin Ho in the Under-12 Girls’ Singles final in 2007, while Michael was Cadet Boys’ Doubles champion alongside Gavin Evans – now England coach – in the same year.

As well supporting Table Tennis England at major events such as the National Championships, Mark Bates Ltd is providing additional financial support for each policy sold to a Table Tennis England member. It means what when you purchase a policy, you are giving something back to the grassroots of the sport.
