Welcome to East Manchester Table Tennis Club from Steven, the founder of the club.
Located in Gorton, next door to Belle Vue’s Greyhound Racing Stadium and the Belle Vue Speedway track, and only a few minutes drive from Manchester City’s Etihad football ground, is East Manchester Table Tennis Club.
As a table tennis enthusiast who is passionate about this great sport I was surprised not to find any properly established facilities to play table tennis in a community set up in such a large city. It was because of this I decided to set up a new community club open to all ages and all abilities to try and fill a gap in the city. Opened in March 2015 we now have three teams competing across the Manchester Table Tennis League and regularly have about 30 people coming along every session. We started out only operating with a couple of tables and have now expanded to running 8 tables across the session. Our next aims are to shortly change the club opening night from a Friday to another week night (as Fridays are not convenient for a lot of people) and then to open on a second day of the week so we have two club nights per week.
We aim to provide as much assistance, guidance and coaching to anyone who wants to improve their game (coaching isn’t compulsory however, so if you just want to come along and play socially you’re also more than welcome to come along), and have UKCC Level 2 standard coaching.
Players of all ages are welcome, right through from beginners to advanced seasoned players, as we aim to encourage all people to pick up a bat, get playing and have fun in the community.
Club opening times are as follows:
-5 tables are open 6pm-8pm for beginners/less abled players, where coaching and fun games and activities will be run
-5 tables are open 8pm-10pm for league players or advanced non-league players
-3 tables are open 6pm-10pm on an open basis, where anyone can come along and use them how they wish
Anybody who is interested should visit our contact page for details of how to get in touch and we hope to see as many people as possible coming along every Friday.
