JUNIOR COACHING
Table tennis coaching for beginners and early learners is available at Ellenborough Table Tennis Club on Saturday mornings. Because of Covid 19 we now have two sessions. We only have 6 tables and are limited to 12 kids in each session. The first session is from 10.00a.m. to 11.00a.m and the second session is from 11.00am to 12.00am. As there is limited spaces please email coaching.ettc@gmail.com to provide children's name, emergency contact number and indicate either 1st or 2nd session. Ages range from around 7 or 8 year- olds to early Teens.  Due to hall bookings and coach commitments please check the CLUB CALENDAR to know if a particular session is running. Weekend coaching costs just £1 for club members and £4 for non members for a 1 hour session.

The purpose of the coaching is to ensure that the children enjoy playing and learn good habits, while developing key table tennis skills. All sessions are supervised by Table Tennis England qualified coaches. More advanced training is also available, details of which are available from the coaching staff and scheduled on the session plan below. Weekday session costs start at £5 per session for club members.

Team competitions, namely the National Junior League and the National Cadet League, are organised giving children the opportunity to compete against players of a similar standard from other clubs in the region. Matches are played all day on particular Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season. The club also has teams in the Junior British League, which is a nation-wide competition for more advanced junior players. Further details are available from the coaching staff.

During coaching sessions every child is given the opportunity to develop their skills and reach their full potential.

SENIOR COACHING
We are planning to resume adult coaching in the near future. Until then Gordon will be stewarding on Wednesday mornings and is happy to knock with anyone. Email coaching.ettc@gmail.com  to enquire to make a booking.

COMPETITION
The club is used for local and national events, out-of-school training camps and inter-school competitions.

The club enters teams to suit all abilities in the North Middlesex Table Tennis League as well as the Cheshunt  & District and Shaw Table Tennis Leagues.

Club members compete in National team competitions representing Ellenborough or one of the Leagues they play in, the National Competitions organised by Table Tennis England are listed below - 

- Veterans British League (Men & Woman)
- Senior British League (Men & Women)
- Junior British League (Boys & Girls)
- Wilmott Cup (Men)
- JM Rose Bowl (Ladies)
- Carter Cup (Junior Boys)
- Bromfield Trophy (Junior Girls)

Ellenborough organises National Junior League and National Cadet League on behalf of Table Tennis England and is one of only 16 venues around the country. The aim of NJL and NCL is to provide local competitive matches for juniors particularly for those who find playing in local evening leagues unsuitable. It also enables juniors to gain ranking points and establish themselves on the Table Tennis England ranking lists and is therefore an important step in the player pathway for the development of juniors in table tennis.

For many years the Ellenborough Table Tennis Club has had a reputation in having a highly well organised coaching programme for all ages and abilities. All our coaches are qualified and Table Tennis England approved.

As a beginner, whether you’re an adult or child, you need to master the basic techniques and strategies of the game which will make table tennis a lot more enjoyable. Laying a good foundation is important and will continue to support your game as you progress and improve. Group sessions provide opportunities to further develop these basics. Individual lessons allow you to develop an in-depth understanding of what you need to do to move past beginner status.

We participate in all the major UK tournaments where the Lead Coaches travel with the children to be on hand to offer advice and guidance during the matches.
