SEASON 2017–18 APPROACHES

After another successful year we are now getting ready for the new season. Membership forms are now available from the desk at Testwood or from the website.

 

MEMBERSHIP

To keep up with the increase in the hall hire this coming season we have made a small increase in membership charges:

Seniors £35      Juniors £20       Family £50

STTA fees remains at £80 and practice fees (Seniors £3.50 Juniors £2.00) is also unchanged.

 

STTA LEAGUE

We have entered 19 teams for the Southampton League. Some teams are not yet finalised since we are waiting to get confirmation from a number of members that they are going to play. If you have not yet done so please let John and myself know that you want to play as well as indicating preferred home nights (Tues or Wed)

 

TABLE TENNIS ENGLAND MEMBERSHIP

It is now the time to renew your TTE Membership, please renew this asap. If you are playing in the STTA League you will need TTE Player Membership (£14 adults £7 Juniors) If you can send John and myself the confirmation from TTE (as well as your number) that you have paid we can update our records.

If you are not playing in the league, please take out TTE Associate Membership – it’s FREE!

 

INDIVIDUAL SUMMER LEAGUE

John is organising an individual Summer League on Tuesdays starting on 15th August (7.00 – 9.30) players will be guaranteed 3 matches per night. This will run for 5 weeks and will be an ideal warm up for the STTA season.

 

TOPSPIN BAT TESTING NIGHT

On Monday 4th September Topspin will be holding a bat testing evening at Testwood from 7.30pm. You will be able to try out bats / rubbers and they will make up bats for you on the night. They will be bringing some other equipment and clothing but if there is anything that you would like please let John or myself know and we will get them to bring it.

 

WTTC CLUB TOURNAMENT

On Saturday 9th September we will host our own club tournament open to all WTTC members. This is very much a social occasion as well an opportunity for STTA league players to get some competitive practice.
