Table Tennis the Way You Like It


Table Tennis Rother have over 35 years of experience delivering table tennis to schools withinn East Sussex, both long and short term projects as well as one off visits. The sport in ideal of all sporting abilities within a school environment and even those identified as semi or non sporty can enjoy the sport and benefit from particupation in many ways. It’s affordable, accessible, sociable and can do wonders for childrens fitness, social skills and self esteem. We all know that many pupils do not find mainstream sports appealing . Many have told us that they dont like team games or sports which involve being out in the cold or where physical contact is part of the sport. Thats why a sport like table tennis can prove attractive to these children and young people, enabling them to be active and live a healthly life life both in body and mind. Here, at Table Tennis Rother, we can work with your school to establish an extra-curricular club, or a few curicular sessions from a one-off to a term or two. Some of our programmes do not require table tennis tables or at the very least a few dining tables. For extra-curricular clubs we have a number of tables we can loan . Storage space limited? No worries we can discuss the best type of tables suited to your schools facilities. Several schools , and present, have had concerns about storage, particularly Primary Schools. We have shown them this isnt a major issue as we have allocated tables that store compactly taking very little space indeed. During our extra curricular clubs pupils are rewarded as they progress through our exclusive skills award programme. In addition we have awards in Leadership for both Primary and Secondary level students, and for our Prmary Schools pupils we understand that they particularly love receiving certificates. For that reason we have developed certificates which reward attendance as well as sportsmanship and for trying their very best. These certificates as numbered and come in a variety of colours for pupils to collect. We know these and our other awards are greatly appreciated by our younger players. If you would like us to come and talk to you about a possibilty for your school then please do get in touch. All coaches within Table Tennis Rother are Table Tennis England licenced and qualified to at least level 2 and above , have a current, live, DBS as well have other certification in First Aid, Autism Awareness etc. We can cater for areas covering Hastings, Rother, Eastbourne and parts of Wealden.
