British Para Table Tennis (BPTT) would like to introduce you to the world of playing Table Tennis. If you have only just started on your Table Tennis playing experience we would direct you to contact your local Table Tennis club who will provide facilities for you to play at either social or competitive levels. Use our Club Finder below to find contact information on these clubs near to you.
Find places to play
The Club Finder has been developed to help people find suitable opportunities to play para table tennis. Whether you are looking to play socially, or join a club, the search will highlight the opportunities available in your area.
Competition as always is an integral part of our sport and is catered for by BPTT. Most local Table Tennis clubs offer some form of competition, whether it be at internal club or local league based.
BPTT also offer a small Grand Prix circuit for more advanced players who wish to test their playing skills at the higher level. Each year in addition BPTT hold the Michael Hawksworth National Championships. All of these tournaments participate in the BPTT Ranking system where players gain and sometimes lose ranking points based on their individual performance at these tournaments.
Events are based on a Classification system which can be seen below. Entry is open to all players with a disability. Players will be grouped into the following classes:
