It is not often that a professional can feel as useful a member of the community as I do, helping to bring the joy of music where it is so badly needed”.

Social Table Tennis sessions are for people of all ages and playing standards. They tend to be less competitve than match play and many of the attendees prefer to play doubles rather than singles. You do not have to be a member to attend and new players are always welcome. Morning sessions are held on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 10.00 am and 12.00 pm. An afternoon session is held on Wednesdays between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm. Fees are £3 for members and £5 for non-members. No pre-booking is necessary, just turn up and play.”
