 Weymouth & District Table Tennis League


Weymouth & District Table Tennis League serves Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester in sunny Dorset. At the present time there are some 30 teams competing in three divisions pproviding a high standard of competitive table tennis. However, it is not all about the league, there is a social table tennis club situated at Preston where there is plenty of opportunities for beginners to come along and see if they like the sport.

If you are visiting on holiday then you are welcome to call any one on the committee and they will be able to point you towards the nearest table tennis club where you will be made very welcome.

The Weymouth & District Table Tennis League itself is affiliated to Table Tennis England

Practice updates and news

Primary School Fun Club

This restarts on Monday at All Saints School, 4.30pm to 5.30pm. The cost is just £1.

The aim is to introduce primary school pupils to the game with a series of fun table tennis based games. New players will get extra help to get started and playing quickly. All players are also welcome to join us on a Saturday morning for more specific coaching.

I will be visiting many primary schools over the next few weeks for free introduction sessions. Please encourage your school to take up this offer and let them have my contact details.

New Weymouth League Training Tops

All Weymouth squad players who play in the National Cadet or National Junior Leagues must have a Weymouth black match top. These can also be used for other tournaments and training. Please remember black shorts/skorts should be worn for tournaments.

We are now introducing a new training top. This training top will cost just £10 and is available in a much greater range of sizes and colours. The girls top is also available in a V neck if preferred.

We will have a couple of these tops at training on Monday and next Saturday and I will make an order before half term.

We will be looking to introduce Weymouth League shorts next!

Adult Beginners Coaching – Wednesday – October 4th

These new sessions are for players aged 16 upwards and start on a monthly basis at the Wey Valley Tennis Centre on October 4th, 7pm to 8pm, cost £2. Suitable for complete beginners through to those in the lower league divisions, looking to improve their game.

Each monthly session will be run by Weymouth coaches and involve straightforward exercises designed to help players improve their serves and shots.

Competitions

The next Joola Plymouth 2 star will take place on Sunday October 29th. The closing date is October 15th. See link - https://tabletennisengland.co.uk/tournament/bribar-plymouth-junior-2-open-11/

This is a popular competition for our players across all age groups and we have had some success there in the past.

I will also be travelling down to support and give encouragement.


Please speak to me if you are unsure about playing or want more information.

Several Weymouth players are on the reserve list.

Weymouth & District Table Tennis League – New Season

The WDTTL league season starts week beginning September 25th and all captains should now have received fixtures for the new season.

There are 31 teams competing this year, which is up 2 teams on last year. 31 teams does give our fixture secretary a bit of a fixture headache as there has to be 11 teams in one division!

The revised constitution and playing etiquette which was discussed at this year’s AGM will be sent out to captains next week.

Beaminster Practice

This has restarted now for the season.

It takes place at Beaminster School DT8 3EP on Monday evenings in the lower Gym from 7.30 to 9.30. The cost is £3, £2 for under 16’s.

Contact Jack Bennet for further details at j.barnett.tabletennis@gmail.com

St Osmunds Practice, Dorchester

This takes place every Friday at the sports centre between 6pm and 8pm, cost £3.50. This is run by the centre itself and supported by the Weymouth & District Table Tennis League to encourage more players in Dorchester.

School visits

Several school visits are now in the pipeline for this term. Wey Valley, Budmouth, Radipole, Dorchester Middle, Holy Trinity, Westfield and Chickerell are just some of the schools we visit in the next 2 weeks.

All primary schools are eligible for a free table tennis introductory session for their year 4 to 6 classes. All equipment is provided. Please speak to your school about hosting a session and ask them to contact Andy Millar.

The Weymouth & District Table Tennis League are keen that every pupil should get a chance to play. Table Tennis is fast becoming a popular alternative to other mainstream sports and can be enjoyed by all ages, abilities, girls and boys.

In October we are looking to re-introduce the Primary School fun club on a Monday at All Saints between 4.30pm and 5.30pm.

All Saints School Arts and Music Festival – September 23rd

There is no practice next Saturday due to the annual event taking place.

For the first time the Weymouth & District Table Tennis League will have a promotional table at the event. If you know a player who is interested in joining our squads or wants to know more about what is involved, bring them along next week.

Competitions
