Table Tennis England has been awarded an extra £250,000 from Sport England to support our work in creating more opportunities for women and girls in table tennis through building our digital capabilities and infrastructures.
The new National Lottery funding is part of Sport England’s overall £35m package of investment to make the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham this summer a success, and to create a lasting national impact and legacy.
In addition to the funding, Table Tennis England will also participate in an Innovation and Digital Accelerator programme with access to expert support to maximise the impact of our plans.
Table Tennis England announced earlier this year their commitment to creating gender parity in the sport with an unapologetic focus on increasing the number of Women and Girls involved and making table tennis a space where women and girls feel welcomed, valued, visible and have the opportunity to progress.
