Northumbria Table Tennis encourages players of all abilities to come and join our friendly club and make lasting friendships!

Table Tennis is very welcoming with a desire to support all club members. Whether you want to play for fun with our non BUCS (club social) membership or competitively with our BUCS membership.

There is one "Just PLAY" session a week. These relaxed sessions are filled with a range of fun inclusive games for those who want to play socially or learn a new sport! 

The BUCS members compete for the team at weekly fixtures. On Tuesdays the team will train together and join in with some of the non BUCS relaxed games. 

There is something for everyone as you’ll also enjoy a wide variety of weekly social events organised by the club committee. This makes it a great opportunity to play the sport you love and make lots of new friends.

Come and give it a go and have some fun!

Club captain Doriva Yau was shortlisted for Committee Member of the Year at this year's annual Northumbria Sport Awards.

All club training has now ceased for 2023/24. Students enquiring about joining the club in 2024/25 season can contact the Club Committee via email or instagram. 2024/25 memberships will be available to purchase from September 2024.
