How do you enter a new team into Winchester Table Tennis League?
Register your team for 2020-21 Season now!
The deadline for entering teams in the 2019/20 season has passed (it was 24th July 2019).
Current club secretaries must return registration forms by the deadline to enable the league format and fixtures to be planned in good time for the new season. Any queries please contact the League Secretary.
Any new club thinking about entering a team please contact the League Secretary: email@example.com ASAP
New players who are interested in playing in the League please contact your local club for advice.
We really welcome new teams into the League! If you and a group of 3-4 friends are interested in
entering a team, the following may help.
Rather than starting a new club, it's often easier to join one of the existing Clubs in the area and enter a team under their umbrella (see
They will have a table, adequate lighting and space, and may be able to get better terms for hall hire.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Players: 3 people make up a team, male and/or female. You're likely to need 1 or 2 reserves as well.
Make sure everyone is committed to play a full season (September to March, most weeks!).
Playing Standard: If you're not sure if you and your friends are up to
League standard, go along to Kings Table Tennis Club
on a Monday evening and make yourselves known to the organisers as being interested in forming a League team.
There are no formal restrictions on playing standards, but it's no fun being slaughtered every week, even
in the friendliest way!
Juniors: We don't currently have a Division exclusively for Juniors (under 18s), much as we would like to!
Teams are encouraged to welcome juniors, and we try to meet their need to finish by a reasonable time.
Accommodation: You'll need a room at least 20' by 15' and a reasonable-quality table and net.
Teams currently play anywhere from Sports Halls and Village Halls to a well-equipped garden room.
Money: Table Tennis is not expensive. Registering a team and its 4 players (say) in the League costs
about £60 for 6 months of play, about 22 weeks. Juniors (under 18) are charged less. Hiring a hall for home matches costs up to about £5 per hour for 3 hours.
Time: League matches can occur on any weekday, usually Monday to Thursday. Matches start at 7:30 pm
and last up to 3 hours. Matches involving Juniors may start earlier and finish earlier (especially if two tables are used).
Social side: League matches are played in a friendly, sociable way, and a 15-minute refreshments
interval means there's time to socialise!
