Coronavirus (COVID-19) Important Information
Pudsey TTC, in line with Table Tennis England and Government advice, are now open for members-only practice and coaching sessions. Further information may follow when we receive more advice from Table Tennis England.
The clubhouse at Pudsey Bowling Club has limited opening hours for practice sessions, which must be booked in advance - see the Diary & Resource Booking page for more information. Please support the bar from May 17th - indoor drinking is available. Members must be seated and wear "face coverings" until seated.
We ask that members continue to check their emails for updates, as well as the website and the club's Twitter feed (also shown on the homepage).
Pudsey Table Tennis Club, based in Pudsey, Yorkshire, is a Table Tennis England registered Advanced Premier Club.
This means that we have attained set standards in areas of club development, competition, management duty, facilities and other club activities. We pride ourselves on having a strong coaching structure with Table Tennis England qualified coaches from level 1 to senior level. Our coaches are responsible for many of the coaching sessions run in Leeds schools and our development of players can be seen in the number of players who have gone on to achieve county honours and England representative honours.
We are in the process of achieving Clubmark status - a Sport England Cross-Sport scheme that recognises safe, effective child-friendly sports clubs.
Membership and Competitions
The club has an open membership policy and has members ranging in age from 8 to 70, with males and females from all sections of the community. As a club we like to socialise and have many stories of past functions - playing at a club headquarters with a bar is an added advantage!
The club is affiliated to the Leeds League and also competes in events run by the Yorkshire Table Tennis Association and Table Tennis England.
It is hoped we can run a Summer League with teams from Pudsey TTC starting In July, in line with government and Table Tennis England advice.
If you are interested in training and playing competitively, or receiving coaching, please contact Secretary Peter Thompson who will be happy to help.
Pudsey Bowling Club
Pudsey Bowling Club is the club's base and provides excellent facilities for competitions where two concurrent matches can be played. It is also used for some training sessions.
Pudsey Leisure Centre
The majority of club training sessions take place in the Pudsey Leisure Centre where up to 12 tables can be used for formal training and one-to-one coaching. Junior and Senior competitions are also held here on occasion.
Club President Granville Thornton founded the club as Bramley Ebenezer Table Tennis Club in 1970. Granville was elected as our first President at the AGM in July 2002.
The club was formed to provide alternative recreational facilities for children, both from the church in which the club was based, and the local community.
The club entered 2 teams, into the local youth league in 1970 and officially entered the Leeds League in 1973, and the Bradford League in 1984.
With the Closure of the church in 2004 the club found a new home at Pudsey Bowling Club. As a result of the success of this move the club was renamed Pudsey Table Tennis Club at the AGM in July 2005.
