The Rother Table Tennis Academy , now formally known as Table Tennis Rother, was launched in September 2009 as the development arm of Battle Community Table Tennis Club. The aim was to develop an organisation that could work with schools to develop the sport linked to a Table Tennis England 4 Star Ability registered Premier Club. We are also Sport England Club Mark Accredited.One of our main aims is to encourage schools to develop the sport and link to our club sessions giving young people a pathway into the sport so that they can both develop their interests and skills either as a social player, competitive player or perhaps as an official.Since the formation of the Academy we have worked on a number of projects with our partners. These have included a number of Sports Unlimited projects as well as a number of lottery funded projects. Our must recent project is with Rye College as a result of a Sports England Small Grants Award. Other organisations have included schools in Bexhill and more recenrlty we have welcomed Ratton School Academy in Eastbourne and Saxon Mount Special School in Hastings.We continue to work closely with Table Tennis England and Active Sussex and we are currently working towards some additional interesting projects with our current parents as well as some prosepctive new ones.
