Table Tennis England’s latest offer means it has never been easier for schools to introduce the sport – or expand their existing provision.

Today, we launch the Schools Table Packages and Table Grant Scheme – the first of these offers all schools a choice of indoor and outdoor tables, while the latter offers grants of £300 to primary schools to help meet the cost.

Each package has been carefully chosen with key suppliers to offer robust tables and equipment suitable for a school environment.

The packages come complete with bats, balls and everything else a school will need to run a thriving table tennis programme.

Included in all orders is our introductory schools resource pack crammed full of tips and skills, useful templates, posters, certificates and medals to get a table tennis club and/or competition started.

Here’s what we are offering:

Package 1 – Indoor – £615

Contents: 2x JOOLA World Cup 22 indoor tables, 16x indoor bats, 50x training balls & 4 jumbo balls, 1x JOOLA sports holdall

Package 2 – Outdoor – £675

Contents: 1x Cornilleau Pro 510 static outdoor table, 8x outdoor bats & 72x balls, 1x Cornilleau sports holdall

Package 3 – Schools Instant Ping Pack – £60

You can add additional tables, bats or balls to your order at an exclusive rate.
