Table Tennis England has launched a new disability awareness online training module for the sport’s workforce and volunteers, and sign-ups are now open.

Disability awareness training in the past has been delivered on a face-to-face course and this option will still be available to clubs in the future but with the rise in availability and improved access to online learning, the course has been moved online.

The course will provide you with information to support you to feel more confident working with Disabled People in a table tennis setting by making your sessions more accessible and showing you ways of communicating with players, whilst meeting their individual needs.

Everything is table tennis specific and includes sections on coaching, classification, competitions and communication aimed at the following organisations/people:

  • Clubs, leagues and counties
  • Volunteers within clubs, leagues, counties and regions
  • Coaches

The course is being offered free of charge to everyone throughout February and thereafter on an ongoing basis will be free to Premier Clubs and Licensed Coaches, with a small fee for others.
