The Guernsey Table Tennis Association (GTTA) formed in 1922 as the official governing body for table tennis in Guernsey.
Our premises has 20 tables and is based at the Hougue du Pommier, Castel, alongside the Guernsey Bowls centre.
The GTTA is a non profit making association, is funded by player subscriptions, fundraising events, sponsors, donations and grants.
The management committee and sub-committees consist of volunteers.
The GTTA is affiliated to the International Table Tennis Federation, European Table Tennis Union, Guernsey Commonwealth Games Association, Guernsey Island Games Association and the Guernsey Sports Commission
TABLE TENNIS IN GUERNSEY
Guernsey has approximately 150 adult league table tennis players and 100 juniors receiving regular coaching and playing in the junior or senior league. There are five affiliated clubs (Alderney, Lions, Ravenscroft Panthers, St Pauls and Whistlers), which all play at the Guernsey Table Tennis Centre at La Hougue du Pommier, Vale, with the exception of Alderney. A ladder-style summer league runs from June to August for GTTA members and visitors by special arrangement.
The Island Championships are contested in March/April each year at the Guernsey Table Tennis Centre, with age categories ranging from Under 11 to Over 70. Winners of each category subsequently play their Jersey counterparts to compete in the Channel Islands Championships. Guernsey players compete in various competitions off island including the British League, British Schools tournaments and the Island Games.
For the socially inclined, the Social League runs on Tuesday evenings at the Guernsey Table Tennis Centre. This League is particularly suited to beginners and lower division players. Various other tournaments are held throughout the table tennis season, details of which can be found in the GTTA diary.
SportsMark is the Guernsey Sports Commission's quality assurance award that recognises the high standards of welfare and safeguarding, corporate governance and financial management within each sport. It also reflects the fact that the GTTA has qualified coaches, safeguarded volunteers and officials and that we are committed to delivering a Development Plan in conjunction with the Guernsey Sports Commission.
