There’s still time to book your place on a Table Tennis England roadshow where some of our senior figures are outlining future developments in the sport and updating clubs and leagues on how we are investing in them.

Over the next few weeks, our Board and staff members are travelling the country to meet and talk to our members as part of our Governance Review.

The review was launched to allow Table Tennis England to better listen to the views of members, whilst remaining in compliance with the Government’s Code of Governance.

The update will include the findings of the Independent Review Panel (IRP) and a number of recommendations, including the creation of a Membership Advisory Group that would comprise expert advice from all areas of the sport.

Attendees will also hear how to get involved with our major programme for helping clubs and leagues, Be TT, and how the programme has gone in its first year, as well as having the opportunity to talk to staff and Board members about other topics.
