Club Affiliation for the 2018-19 season has now opened and it’s easier and more beneficial than ever to become part of our family.
Clubs can renew their affiliation using the simple online form or Club Administrators can renew directly via TT365.
PremierClub Affiliation costs £55 for a season and gives your club access to a host of benefits aimed at helping clubs develop and improve.
This year clubs can save up to £90 on coaching and officiating courses through redeeming:
- 30 discount on 1 UKCC Level 1 Coaching Course
- £30 discount on 1 UKCC Level 2 Coaching Course
- FREE place on a Level 1 umpire course (usually £30)
PremierClubs are also invited to get free access to an exciting new club management tool that can allow clubs to easily:
- Create a fully responsive, mobile-friendly website free of third-party adverts
- Take online payments and manage direct debits of its members
- Offer online bookings for tables, sessions, coaching courses, holiday camps or other resources
- Monitor session attendance and gain easy access to emergency details through the session app
- Manage members and keep track of their activities in a single place, while remaining GDPR compliant
- Keep in touch with their members using the free email function

Alongside this, there’s also the new Young Ambassadors programme, aimed at incentivising young people to volunteer at their clubs. In return for logging their hours, they can redeem funding for coaching and officiating courses and receive TTYA kit, certificates and special recognition from Table Tennis England. Table Tennis England will fund the programme for three youngsters at each PremierClub.
In addition to all this, PremierClubs can also get access to development and accreditation opportunities including Sport England’s national Clubmark scheme, plus partner discounts on items including table tennis gear, tickets to the PG Mutual National Championships and defibrillators.
For 2018-19, we have rebranded free club membership to align with Table Tennis England individual membership. Associate Club Affiliation is an excellent option for clubs which are not yet ready for a PremierClub Membership, but still wish to be part of our family.
Both PremierClubs and Associate Clubs will have the option to appear on our Club Finder to help publicise your clubs to the public.
