The Club was formed to support and promote the playing of Table Tennis in Petersfield. We also aim to provide recreational and competitive play for players of all ages and abilities year-round. Tony Smith the Chairman and General Secretary of the club has been involved with the sport for more than 50 years. He became a Licensed Level 2 TTE Coach in the 1980's and holds current DBS certification together with First Aid and Safeguarding certificates.
We also have three Level 1 TTE Coaches as members of the Club and numerous others who hold DBS clearance. We have a close association with The Petersfield School (TPS) and run a weekly "After-School Club" on a Wednesday during term time.
We play our competitive matches in the Haslemere & District Table Tennis League. We have several members who serve on that League's Management Committee. HDTTA is the local association which manages and runs the local league consisting of 3 Divisions (200+ players) representing 9 different local clubs from Fernhurst to Hawkley and Ifold to Headley. We are now the largest club (membership wise) in the league and we had six teams playing across all three divisions this season. We have won the Division One championship for the last two years. For more details please go to our HDTTA Honours page.
Our Junior membership has grown this year and currently stands at 20+ members aged from 9 to 18. Alongside our annual Junior Tournament in September, HDTTA run a monthly Junior League during the winter and a Closed Tournament usually in May. Visit the Honours page to see our track record.
About 25 years ago there were several successful Petersfield based clubs playing in this league and they have all folded and disappeared for one reason or another. We would like to revive this tradition and become a prominent club in this local league. To this end we encourage members participation in competitive play within the Haslemere League and to take part in the annual tournaments and competitions it organises. We also organise our own annual internal (Closed) Competitions for both Juniors and Adult players/members in September each year.
