Table Tennis


Key Information

Table Tennis is hugely popular in Asia and continental Europe, with numbers now increasing in Scotland too.

As a sport that has less to do with gender, age, size and strength than it does with skill, dexterity and technique, the potential for participation in the sport is huge.  There are a number of high performing individuals, as well as a large number of novice and intermediate athletes.

Our Table Tennis programme consists of league competition and a Table Tennis Championships as part of the Scottish Student Games every year in late January. We have two men’s and one women’s league catering for both performance athletes and students looking to develop their abilities within the sport.
