Warwick Table Tennis Club is a friendly sports club for players of all abilities to have fun and advance their game. Whether you are a social player or a member of the women's or men's team, we have a lot to offer. For beginners/intermediates we provide both casual club sessions and a chance to experience coaching via our Sunday coaching sessions. For advanced players, we provide advanced coaching and a chance to play in BUCS teams and in the Leamington League.
We captured some of our best moments in the following video!

The club is only open during term time,
Autumn Term: Monday 5 October 2020 – Saturday 12 December 2020
Spring Term: Monday 11 January 2021 – Saturday 20 March 2021
Summer Term: Monday 26 April 2020– Saturday 3 July 2020
The club has one women's team and two men’s teams in the BUCS Leagues. Team trials are held at the beginning of the academic year, but movement into the squad is possible for any member who demonstrates commitment and ability, as judged by the team captains. There will also be room for a development squad, which will bridge the gap between team and non-team by allowing cross-training and monitoring of their progress to determine whether they should be added to the team. They will also be encouraged to play in the local Leamington league.
If chosen for the BUCS team squad, you will be provided additional training and the opportunity to represent the university in inter-university tournaments and matches.
1. Monday 20:30 to 22:00
2. Tuesday 8:00 to 10:00
3. Friday 17:00 to 20:00 (Drills/Coaching/Matchplay Session)
Friday sessions will be coached by a level 3 coach or lead by our captains. Team tournaments may be run during the session at least once a term.
In addition to the BUCS teams, WTTC has 2 mixed teams in the Leamington Table Tennis League. Our first team will contain BUCS players only but our second team will be open to the development squad and any other interested members. Please contact us via Instagram or Facebook for more information.
We hold a wide range of socials open to everyone regardless of skill level. To many of our members, the club is a vital part of social life at Warwick. It is our socials that create a friendly and inclusive environment whilst serving the role of building team spirit and raising morale.
We have a whole host of events planned for you guys over the next year including sober socials such as:
• Bowling during welcome week
• Escape rooms
• Laser Quest trips
• Termly club dinners
• Waterpark trips
• Trampoline park trips
For when the sun goes down, Warwick Table Tennis has the best nightlife on campus from our legendary themed Circles and Pop to Skooldayz parties to our regular failures to win the weekly Dirty Duck pub quiz. There is something for everyone at Warwick Table Tennis and we look forward to seeing you in the new academic year.
Please consult our Facebook and Instagram pages for details about how you can get involved! All events are listed on our various social media pages. We also regularly update our WhatsApp chat with reminders of when our socials are so you never miss out!
If you fancy a challenge, we run a range of regular tournaments, which are open to all members. These range from regular singles tournaments to doubles tournaments to handicap tournaments, so there is something for everyone.
We can provide all equipment including beginner bats. If you want to buy your own please speak to an exec member who can provide you with the club’s recommendations.
We recommend wearing a sports shirt and shorts/skorts, though normal clothes are fine. Any non-marking trainers or shoes are perfect, as we play indoors.
There are women's and men's changing rooms on the ground floor.
Table Tennis Doing Other Sports
The club takes part in lots of other sports, especially racquet sports. Just last year, we entered a team in the Racketlon (squash, tennis, badminton, table tennis) and won! Our own Men's Team Captain and Sport's Officer also took the tennis tournament crown! The club also has its very own football team and we plan to do skillswaps each term with other sports clubs.
Make sure you check our Facebook page to see how you can get involved and keep up to date. Follow us on Instagram.
