Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club started in 1993, inspired by a group of local players wanting to build a new club / dedicated venue. It started as two scout huts and over the years, evolved into one of the largest clubs in the region with its own purpose-built building funded by the generosity of the South West Sports Council, Foundation for the Sports & Arts and the National Lottery.
Situated in Christchurch, Dorset, our club benefits from being next door to Bournemouth International Airport and close to direct routes into Bournemouth and Christchurch centre.
The club forms part of a group of sport clubs operating under an umbrella club called Bournemouth Sports Club.
We have 24/7 access to up to four tables, with large courts, wooden floor, coffee / tea making facilities and toilets (+disabled) and shower.
We have multiple teams playing in the local Bournemouth / Wimborne leagues covering all abilities and run day time practice and weekend coaching sessions.
4th March: Sophie Barcsai won two titles at the Welsh National Championships in Cardiff on the 2nd-3rd March. She is National Champion at U11 and U13 (dropping only one end in both of these events). Also she was in the Semis of the Cadets (under 15's) which was won by Anna Hursey. In the Irish Nationals which took place at the same time, 12 year old Emily Flynn, who has trained at Bournemouth in preparation for this event, dominated, beating all other 8 contenders to become Irish National U13 Champion. Our own Hannah Hicks competing in the English Nationals, despite hardly training over the last 6 months came away with a Bronze Medal losing only to Tin Tin Ho in the Semis.
