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.

JUNIOR COACHING

Table tennis coaching for beginners and early learners is available at Ellenborough Table Tennis Club on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10-30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Ages range from around 7 or 8 year- olds to early Teens.

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.

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.
