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.

This followed on from the Bournemouth Cadet Invitation in Christchurch the day before. Jamie Blair and Jess Moggeridge won the Boys and girls events respectively. Jaimee Browne won the Tyro plate and Nathan Calton was runner up in boys plate.

A great turn out and effort from the Weymouth players over the 2 days.

Summer League

Congratulations to our 3 Summer League winners. Jed Brackenridge (Division 1), Jess Moggeridge (Division 2) and Sam Melhuish (Division 3). This was good match-play practice over the summer term and we will be repeating next year.

Junior British League

Qualifying took place in Grantham on Saturday and Jamie Blair, Kai Major and Jack Trafford represented a Dorset Table Tennis Academy team. Only the top team is guaranteed qualification and the DTTA team won their first 4 matches in a group of 6 teams to give themselves a good chance. However, they lost the final match to top seeds, Colebridge who are based in Birmingham, and finished 2nd in the group.

Summer Holiday Practice - Mondays at Wey Valley Tennis Centre

These sessions start on Monday July 24th and run from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. The cost is £3. Each week will consist of an hours practice, then match-play for the final hour. There will also be 1:1 opportunities each week with a Weymouth coach, and please book these in advance.

National Cadet League/National Junior League

Initial squads for these 2 competitions will be finalised by next weekend. These squads can be added to over the season.

We intend to enter 5 teams in the NCL and 1 team in the NJL. The cost per team is £82 and this is paid by the Weymouth & District Table Tennis League. Players will just have to pay for their Table Tennis England membership (£7), but need do nothing at the moment, unless you have already arranged an automatic direct debit with TTE. The WDTTL will automatically renew TTE membership for those already registered. For those not registered, I will contact over the next couple of weeks.
