Interested in playing
"social" table tennis? Angmering Table Tennis Club,
formed in 2009, runs a session each week for adults (say 18 to 80 years old!).
The session takes place on Mondays between 1.30pm and 3.30pm at
Angmering Community Centre, Foxwood Avenue, Bramley
Green, Angmering, West Sussex.
This activity would NOT be
suitable for regular league players or anyone who is looking for really
competitive games. This is for players of lesser to medium ability who would be
quite happy to come along to the Centre for some doubles games and have a bit
of fun, burn off a few calories, and have a chat with old or new friends. There
may also be the opportunity for some singles games although the sessions are
primarily aimed at doubles.
If you have not played since
your youth or for a number of years, this activity may be for you. You may also
be a complete beginner. Three tables are available plus bats and balls, so
there would be no need to buy any equipment unless you would like to have your
Games are played under the
old rules, i.e. five serves each and scoring up to 21. This is done
deliberately to give everybody a chance of a decent length game. There is no
rota system, or anything that makes playing or organising an arduous affair.
This is just a couple of hours of relaxation and fun!
The cost for the session is
£2 per person. If you wish to arrive a bit later or leave a bit earlier,
this is no problem. Just come when it suits you during the two hour session.
There is no joining fee. Any surplus made by the Club will be given back to
members in the form of a subsidy of a Club activity (e.g. Annual lunch). We try
to hold two such social activities each year.
Membership is limited to
ensure that everybody gets a good number of games during a session. So, if
anyone is interested in this activity, please ring the coordinators in the
