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.

Come on all you people out there we really need your help on the committee, the posts still have not been filled but the work is still getting done but by fewer people.
Vacancies for League secretary, web site manager and Welfare Officer are required, none of the posts are particularly onerous, for instance the secretary's post really only requires minute taking and being a figurehead for all the correspondence with the league, all the development work and fixtures and registrations are done by other members of the committee. Easy, so come on let's be hearing from you.
You do not have to play table tennis to take part, a parent or a partner will be perfect.There is a vacancy for a Web Site manager because, as you will probably have noticed, this web site is not getting updated with any regularity.
If you wish to be put forward for any of these posts then please contact any member of the committee as soon as possible.
NewsMore grants have been forthcoming to support the Sportivate projects at All Saints, Wey Valley, Dorchester Middle School and Budmouth. Please use the link to the Weekly Coaching Flyer for more details.
