Stakeholder Support

Support for young aspiring players

Backing the Best and SportsAid

Working in close partnership with SportsAid, Table Tennis England have the opportunity to nominate players for two different funding awards that are available to support young athletes who are working towards being world-class players in the future. Table Tennis England will consider players who are currently within in the Performance Pathway Squads. Nominations for these awards are made in November each year (please note that the final award decision is made by Sportsaid, and nomination by Table Tennis England cannot guarantee an award will be given). Each year Table Tennis England communicate directly with the Performance Squads with regards to the application process.


TASS is the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme – a Sport England funded organisation, enabling talented athletes to maximise their potential with world class support services.

Table Tennis England have the opportunity to nominate a set number of players for the programme each year who are aged 16+. Players nominated are typically part of our performance squads or on the periphery.

Players nominated can access Strength & Conditioning, Physiotherapy, Lifestyle, Psychology, Nutrition, Mental Health Support, and the TASS Medical Scheme through an allocated delivery site.
