About our Junior Banded Events
Table Tennis the Way You Like It
Our Junior Banded Events are currently open to young people who live within East Sussex.
The aim of the events is to provide access to competitions outside of a players own
immediate area at a suitable level, thus building on a players confidence.
To enable this to occur all events are banded with players placed into an appropriate band
according to their current level of experience and ability. This results in some more close
and exciting matches for players. All events are group based to give maximum experience
All players are reuired to umpries matches in their group on a rota basis, however, in the
lower bands extra help is available .
Events are organised in Battle , Bexhill, Eastbourne and Rye where we work in partnership
with local clubs and other organisations to ireach as many young players as possible. We
understand that young players who have perhaps just started out are more likely to take part
in a local event in the initial stages as they are likely to feel more comfortable. Once
confidence builds they start to travel further afield.
As these events develop we aim to run an event for players from across Sussex leading to
the establishment of some 1 and 2 Star Open events in the coming years.
Any club or orgainsation within East Sussex who would be interested in working in
partnership with us to bring a Junior Banded Event to local juniors are welcome to contact
us to discuss an event.
During the 2016/17 season we aim to bring on a couple of new venues to the circuit
including an additional venue in Eastbourne and Bexhill. Plans are also being developed to
run a small event in Hastings.
