The coaching scheme at Cippenham Table Tennis Club is one of the most successful in the country, having produced a number of national champions over the past few years, especially in the younger age groups. All coaching sessions are led by ETTA-approved and qualified coaches who have clean Criminal Records Bureau checks.

Youngsters start as young as five years of age - so long as they can see over the table and have some coordination!

The Cippenham coaching scheme is part of the ETTA PremierClub scheme operating at Excellence, Advanced and Participation levels with feeder schools at Introductory level.

Head Coach Ken Phillips has twice been presented with the English Table Tennis Association Male Coach of the Year Award (1999; 2000) and in February 2001 received the highest possible accolade with the National Coaching Foundation England Coach of the Year (2000) Award in the category Local Volunteer Coach in an Individual Sport (photo above).

Further award came the Club's way in 2001 and 2008 when Sue Hayes was presented with the ETTA Female Coach of the Year Award, in 2007 when Jan Chapman received the same honour and in 2008 when Stephanie Mitchell was Young Coach of the Year.

For the weekly schedule, please see the weekday calendar (opposite).
