 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

News Updates

This Girl Can – Wednesday Feb 21st – Wey Valley Tennis Centre

Female only practice is back at the tennis centre on Wednesday between 7pm and 8pm. The cost is only £1.

These sessions are suitable for all abilities and new players are invited to come and join in. All ages and family groups are welcome. These are light, fun sessions, though I will not hold back anyone’s competitive spirit!

Thomas Hardye – Dorchester Youth Practice

7 to 8 Thomas Hardye pupils have been attending most weeks for some very competitive round robin match-play sessions. The player who has won the most sessions at the end of the season will win a prize. Brogan Elliott and Oakley Joyce both currently lead with 2 wins each.

New players are very welcome to join in with the match-play and there is no commitment to turn up every week.

The Dorchester Middle School practice has finished now until September, but those players are welcome to join me at Thomas Hardye, joining in the match-play or practice with me.

Junior Match-Play League – February Round

25 players took part in Saturdays round at the Wey Valley Tennis Centre. Players were split into 5 groups of 5 for round robin best of 3 matches.

These monthly match-play sessions are proving to be more important as the season progresses. Players get a chance to put into practice some of their new serves and shots under a little more match pressure and also start to develop tactics which suit their game.

It was also good to see so many of our beginner group players enjoy the match-play. It is a chance to learn some basic match rules and filling in scorecards, which is important as we look forward to future Weymouth involvement.

The latest table will be posted next weekend.

WDTTL Tournament – Saturday February 10th

A successful WDTTL tournament was held last weekend at Westfield College. Well done to all of the winners and runners up who received their trophies at the end of a competitive days play.

It was a very successful day for the school teams. Budmouth pupils managed to win all 3 divisions singles title. Will Jolliffe – Division 1, Josh Clark – Division 2, Jess Moggeridge – Division 3. Budmouth also took 2 of the doubles titles, Will Jolliffe and Moses Lewis – Division 1, Josh Clark and Nathan Calton – Division 2. All Saints boys Ollie James and Ethan Clark beat Jaimee Browne and Ella Stanton to win the Division 3 doubles and prevent a Budmouth clean sweep.

In the handicap events Ethan Clark won the open title, Josh Clark won the junior title and Geoff Ware the veterans title.

Thank you to the Preston Table Tennis Club for organising and hosting the event.
