Ellenborough organises National Junior League and National Cadet League on behalf of Table Tennis England and is one of only 16 venues around the country. The aim of NJL and NCL is to provide local competitive matches for juniors particularly for those who find playing in local evening leagues unsuitable. It also enables juniors to gain ranking points and establish themselves on the Table Tennis England ranking lists and is therefore an important step in the player pathway for the development of juniors in table tennis.

For many years the Ellenborough Table Tennis Club has had a reputation in having a highly well organised coaching programme for all ages and abilities. All our coaches are qualified and Table Tennis England approved.

As a beginner, whether you’re an adult or child, you need to master the basic techniques and strategies of the game which will make table tennis a lot more enjoyable. Laying a good foundation is important and will continue to support your game as you progress and improve. Group sessions provide opportunities to further develop these basics. Individual lessons allow you to develop an in-depth understanding of what you need to do to move past beginner status.

We participate in all the major UK tournaments where the Lead Coaches travel with the children to be on hand to offer advice and guidance during the matches.


Table tennis coaching for beginners and early learners is available at Ellenborough Table Tennis Club on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10.00a.m. to 12.00p.m. Ages range from around 7 or 8 year- olds to early Teens.  Due to hall bookings and coach commitments please check the CLUB CALENDAR to know if a particular session is running. weekend coaching costs just £1 for club members and £4 for non members for the two hour session. 

The purpose of the coaching is to ensure that the children enjoy playing and learn good habits, while developing key table tennis skills. All sessions are supervised by Table Tennis England qualified coaches. More advanced training is also available, details of which are available from the coaching staff and scheduled on the session plan below. Weekday session costs start at £5 per session for club members.

Team competitions, namely the National Junior League and the National Cadet League, are organised giving children the opportunity to compete against players of a similar standard from other clubs in the region. Matches are played all day on particular Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season. The club also has teams in the Junior British League, which is a nation-wide competition for more advanced junior players. Further details are available from the coaching staff.

During coaching sessions every child is given the opportunity to develop their skills and reach their full potential.


For adults the club holds open adult coaching on Wednesday mornings between 10.00am and 11.30am. Maybe you used to play table tennis when you were younger and want to take up the sport again, or are looking to take up a new sport, or simply want to improve your game. This session costs £7.00 for members and £11.00 for non-members. As with the juniors the coaching is organised by professional Table Tennis England licenced coaches. CHECK CLUB CALENDAR.

Coaching is one stage, but practice is also very important. The club holds a senior practice session between 10.00am and 12.00pm every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  An early morning singles session runs for adults each Monday from 9.00am to 10.00am. Evening sessions are between 7.30pm and 10.30pm every weekday (6.30pm start on Sundays).
