About Us

Welcome to Bishop Auckland Table Tennis Club; County Durham's Premier Table Tennis Club.

We are a Table Tennis England 4 Star Ability Club with Club Mark Status and a community at the heart of our ethos.

As a community organisation, we are committed to being a Table Tennis club that supports the local area: priding ourselves on offering a welcoming and friendly environment, making table tennis accessible to all ages and abilities whether as a player or volunteer.

We provide pathways to accommodate all ages and levels of ability from total beginners though to national and international players. BATTC pride ourselves on making everyone feel welcome, check out our time table to find a session for you.

For our younger players we offer a progressive coaching pathway with players starting in beginners' sessions. These sessions have been designed to be more casual and social. Players will then have the option to progress into our Futures Squad and finally our Top Squad.

For our seniors, we offer open sessions for social play or training with other players and we also offer coaching for those who want to learn more and improve their own game.

BATTC Sessions include:

  • Over 50s
  • Women and Girls only
  • Disabilities
  • Social play
  • Junior Coaching
  • Adult Coaching

All of our sessions lead into opportunities to play for the club in various leagues such as:

  • Local League
  • National Cadet League
  • National Junior League
  • Junior British League
  • Senior British League

The club is proud of its volunteering programme which has funded over 18 local volunteers to become UKCC coaches, Table Tennis England County Umpires and over 10 young members have become Youth Sport Trust Young Officials.

Bishop Auckland Table Tennis Club is committed to working with the community to encourage people to become active in table tennis. For more information about our community work please visit our community page.

The club is seeking to attract anyone with an interest in table tennis to get involved, whether it is for a casual game on an evening, taking part in more competitive matches, or simply to help out in making our thriving club bigger and better. If you would be interested in getting involved, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
