Come and Play!

So you've been playing table tennis in your garage or spare room, at work or with friends and just looking for the next step - whether it's coaching, playing competitively or finding a social group.

Table Tennis Canterbury would love to help you with the next step.

We have playing options for everyone from juniors to seniors and in between. For those just wanting to improve their skills to those who feel they are ready to be competitive, we'd love to help. Check out our Stadium hours for casual play and social groups, our coaching page for options to improve your skills and, if you want to play competitively then talk to our stadium administrator, Renata Jelli, between 1 and 7pm, Monday to Friday on (03) 341-5561.
