Where do we play?

Kingston is the main facility with permanent tables and 24/7 access.

What type of equipment and clothing do you need?

Generally you need to bring your own bat. The club has a online shop that sells table tennis equipment (bats, balls, shoes etc) for beginners as well as more serious players and prices can range from $60 for a basic bat with rubber up to close to $500 for more bespoke blades and rubber. Generally the gear you can purchase from sporting stores is Ok to start with but you will need to upgrade to better equipment as you progress.

Clothing, usually shorts and a t-shirt, should be comfortable and allow you to move freely.  

General sport/running shoes are okay to begin with.  Table Tennis, tennis , squash, or Indoor sport shoes (netball, volleyball) are good choices. Thongs, slides, work shoes and workboots are not permitted due to the risk of injury.

If you have any questions, I'm sure any member will be more than happy to assist otherwise, contact us here

How good do you have to be to play? 

Table Tennis is a sport for all abilities and all ages. You don't need to have played before to join in the fun.  However if you are already a highly skilled player you will find other members of similar ability to play with.  Below are a few Youtube videos that might help with the basics.
