The Board is responsible for the governance of the organisation, and the Directors and Trustees play a key role in determining the strategic direction of British Para Table Tennis. Led by the Chairman, Karen Tonge OBE, they all work on a voluntary basis and come from a wide range of backgrounds, including business, education, health and sport. Together, they bring a diverse range of skills and expertise and through scrutiny, advocacy and challenge help us achieve our collective ambition of developing elite Para Table Tennis.
The BPTT Board is supported by various sub committees which are accountable
and report to the Board. These sub committees are:
Finance, Governance, Communications, Events, Performance Monitoring, and Selection.
In 2023, the BPTT Board was graded A in Sporting Equals Race
Representation Index (RRI).
The RRI and survey was launched
in 2021 and endorsed by the Sport Monitoring Advisory Panel and funded by Sport
England. This has provided an important baseline barometer, to score publicly
funded National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of sport against progress with the
equality agenda, with a particular lens on ethnic diversity and representation.
