The hottest tickets of the table tennis season are going on sale next week!

The Senior National Championships take place at the Hertfordshire Sports Village in Hatfield from Friday March 18 to Sunday March 20, 2016.

This is YOUR chance to see the best players in the country up close as they battle for national supremacy.

Will Liam Pitchford make it four titles in a row or can Paul Drinkhall exact revenge for last season’s thrilling seven-set defeat – or will someone else get in on the act and write their name on the trophy? On the women’s side, will Kelly Sibley make it six national singles titles or will one of the young pretenders such as Tin-Tin Ho or Maria Tsaptsinos prevail?

This season’s event promises to be a real cracker as the best para players in the land are also set to feature, AND there will be an invitation team test event.

The action gets under way on Friday, with the start of the men’s and women’s singles, plus the team and under-21 competitions from 1pm-9.30pm.

The singles knockout stages, doubles and the para events start on the Saturday (10am-8.30pm), with the event building to a fantastic climax with the semi-finals and finals to be played between 10am and 6pm on Sunday.

Tickets for this not-to-be-missed flagship event will go on sale next Tuesday (December 1), with Early Bird discounts available to all Table Tennis England members.

Friday day tickets cost just £5, with Saturday tickets at £10 for adults and £7 for under-16s. On Sunday, when the Men’s and Women’s Singles champions will be crowned, tickets will cost £12 for adults and £9 for under-16s.

There is also a three-day ticket which costs £25 for adults and £20 for under-16s.
