Table Tennis Manchester
The University of Manchester Table Tennis Club
We currently have 2 men’s teams and 2 women’s team. All teams compete at a high level on a weekly basis in the BUCs competition. Many of our squad players also play in local leagues in Manchester.
About the Club
UMTTC holds bi-weekly social sessions at the Sugden Centre for players of all abilities. Squad players and qualified coaches are available for practise and sessions can be attended on a pay-as-you-play basis or as part of the club membership package. Sessions are fun, relaxed and social - you can play as little or much as you like with whoever you wish to play with and the club caters for all abilities. Equipment is provided and trials are held at the beginning of the year for players who wish to try out for the squad and play competitively (though mini tournaments will be held throughout the year so that no-one misses out!).
UMTTC aims to promote the sport of table tennis (the sport that absolutely everyone can have a go at!) to students of all abilities, whether you wish to compete regularly, stay active or simply play socially. The club not only offers high-level coaching and competitive BUCS fixtures but fun competitions and social events as well, creating a great team vibe.
