Information for parents

TT Kidz has been specially created to give children of all abilities a fun and safe introduction to table tennis.

Providing your children with an amazing first experience

At the start of every session, children and parents will be welcomed by the TT Kidz team. Each week will include a warm-up, activities both on and off the table, and fun games. Parents are also encouraged to get involved!

Based on Sport England funded mystery visits across three programmes. See full survey results.

My child has developed in confidence over the weeks. He has learnt new skills, definitely and 10 out of 10 from us.

Why is TT Kidz good for my child?

TT Kidz will give your child all of the basic skills they will need to enjoy a great game of table tennis. Through a series of fun games and exercises, they will be given the confidence to grow in the game, learn skills for life, and make friends in a safe, fun environment.

Safe and inclusive

TT Kidz is suitable for children of all abilities and backgrounds. All our sessions are held at centres approved and accredited by Table Tennis England.  The sessions are overseen by qualified coaches who have had training in safeguarding and been through the Disclosure and Barring service (DBS). 

All sessions offer elements of the criteria for the National Curriculum in PE for Primary Schools:

  • Running

  • Throwing
  • Catching
  • Flexibility
  • Strength
  • Technique
  • Control
  • Balance
  • Communication
  • Collaboration

The structured sessions, will allow children to grow in confidence and develop transferable sports skills such as hand-to-eye coordination in a safe and supportive environment.

Children taking part in the eight-week club sessions will receive their very own kit, which includes:

  • Drawstring kit bag

The fun doesn’t stop at the session… these kit bags mean that children can continue to play at home. In addition to the kit bags, we have produced a number of play at home resources to support your child’s table tennis development.
