About us

Print

Table Tennis Wagga Inc. is a non-profit sporting club based in the regional centre of Wagga Wagga, in south-western New South Wales, Australia. We provide facilities for, and aim to develop table tennis as a sport, catering for members drawn from the City of Wagga Wagga and the immediate surrounding area. We play and promote table tennis via friendly competitions, social games and practising. Some of our members enjoy the challenge of competing in regional and interstate competitions.

We are a small and friendly sporting club. New members are always welcome, no matter what their playing standard, beginner to champion. The club is incorporated and is affiliated with Table Tennis NSW  Inc.


Feel welcome to come and join us for a game or to practice. Our venue is upstairs in the Jim Elphick Tennis Centre in Bolton Park.

This term we play:

  • Tuesday nights 6pm to 7pm training; followed by 7pm to 9pm social doubles round robin.
  • Thursday nights 6.30pm to about 8pm, singles round robin and practice.
  • Saturday afternoons 2.30pm graded singles competition.

All Saturday’s results are entered into Ratings Central, the nationwide rankings system, which allows us to create a very fair rankings list of Table Tennis Wagga players. Every level of player is encouraged to play in this competition.

As the Saturday afternoon singles continue, we are developing a solid rankings list for the club. In effect your ranking enables you to “play against yourself” and adds incentive to try and  improve your personal score, as you practice and develop your skills. Or if you are more competitive, your score can show how you rank against other players.
As the weeks go by, the rankings list becomes more accurate. To view the full and current rankings list for Table Tennis Wagga please click on this link.

Club shirts and other regalia are available at Hunters on the Hill in Fitzmaurice Street. You can check out the range and order via this link.


Latest News for Members:

2019 play starts in January

Welcome to 2019 for all Table Tennis Wagga players. We have kicked off for the New Year on Tuesday 29th January with practice at 6pm followed by social doubles at 7.15pm. So we’re back into the swing, or should that be the spin, of things.

Our Members do well in Melbourne

At the 2019 LOOPS Melbourne Open Table Tennis Championships, Eriko, Glenn, Khan and Gavin represented our club very competently.

Gavin and Eriko played in the Mixed Doubles. They performed well but unfortunately they crossed bats with a former world champion couple from China and were defeated, but did manage to take a game from them. Well done!

Gavin played well in the Over 30’s Singles, reaching knockout stage. He also made the semi-finals of Division 2 Open. Well done Gavin.

Khan and Glenn played seven rounds in Division 4 Singles, where they met each other across the table in the final. Both players deserve a handshake and equal first, well done.

Glenn played in the Handicapped Open in which he took out the winning prizemoney $500, a great effort!

Overall it was a great performance and experience for our Wagga players. A big thanks to Gavin and Eriko for the coaching and mentoring along the way too.

Win a coffee!

On Tuesdays we hold our Carlos’ Coffee Social Doubles Competition. The inaugural Tuesday competition saw the winning team of Kenneth and Allen take home a coffee voucher each from Carlo’s coffee shop in Morgan Street. Photo below shows a very chuffed Kenneth and Allen receiving their coffee vouchers from Braden. Congratulations to all the players every Tuesday and thanks to Carlo’s Expresso Room and Eatery for their support.

Discounted Family Membership for 2018

For 2018 new Family memberships will be available. If the first two members of a family pay $20 each, then any additional family members under 18 receive a 50% discount and pay only $10. That includes social membership of Table Tennis NSW. So now you save when the whole family plays.

Where we play
We are now playing in a greatly improved venue: upstairs at the Jim Elphick Tennis Centre in Bolton Park (map here)(photos here)
Parking is in Morgan street between Workout Gym and the skate park.
With five tables now permanently set up at the new centre we can currently cater for everyone who turns up. So at present there is no need for members to confirm if they can make it to any comps or not. Just turn up by the correct time and we will have you in a group. This also makes it a lot easier to run.
If you are coming but running a few minutes late to any comp, please just send a text to Gavin. That works fine to reserve yourself a space in the round robin.
As always, new members and visitors are welcome. So feel welcome to bring along and introduce a friend to to this great sport for all ages and abilities. Table tennis is excellent exercise and improves your coordination and balance.
