Table Tennis United is here – our new strategy outlining our vision to turn England into a ‘Table Tennis Nation’.
Launched today, Table Tennis United sets out a series of bold targets across the breadth of the sport – from delivering success on the Olympic stage to strengthening clubs and leagues, from getting more children playing table tennis in schools to creating a world-class coaching and officiating workforce.

Table Tennis United defines our Purpose – Hosting generations of players at our table and our Vision to be A Table Tennis Nation.
But it does much more than that, laying out our guiding principles, setting the roadmap to deliver our ambitious plans in the coming years through four central pledges:
- Table tennis will be a thriving community – a sport for everyone with no barriers to taking part
- Culture change across the pathway that inspires world class performances and medal success
- Connection across the table tennis community
- A high performing organisation that is not just fit for today but is fit for the future
People are at the centre of Table Tennis United as we will work with our members, stakeholders, and partner organisations to develop strategies which will be delivered locally across the country by a strong network of clubs and other environments.
We will be driven by data and insight to ensure that our investment is targeted to where it will deliver results, and we will measure the impact of that investment to ensure we are honouring our pledges.
The Table Tennis United website and strategy document detail how we will work to deliver those pledges.
Table Tennis England Chief Executive, Adrian Christy said: “This is an extremely exciting day for everyone involved in table tennis across the country as we present Table Tennis United – the strategy that sets out the pledges that will lead the next stages of our growth and success.
“Over the past six months, we have undertaken a wide-reaching consultation, capturing the thoughts of the table tennis community, the wider sporting sector and those from outside the sector. An over-riding ‘ask’ was for the organisation to be more ‘present’ locally, to be ‘where the people are at’ and this will be one of the cornerstones of the strategy.
“We have listened, we have learned and I am confident the strategy speaks to the direction of travel that will see the creation of more opportunities for everyone; inspire and excite more people to fall in love with table tennis, regardless of their background; stronger clubs and leagues; greater and more meaningful engagement with members and fans; more and better developed coaches, officials and volunteers; more players and coaches coming through the pathway and medals at world and Olympic level to make the country proud.
“But while we are delighted to launch the strategy, it is the actions that matter, and we know we cannot do this on our own. We need our stakeholders and partners to continue your incredible support and we need the table tennis community to rise up, to come together to be part of a table tennis nation.”
