Weymouth & District Table Tennis League serves Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester in sunny Dorset. At the present time there are some 30 teams competing in three divisions pproviding a high standard of competitive table tennis. However, it is not all about the league, there is a social table tennis club situated at Preston where there is plenty of opportunities for beginners to come along and see if they like the sport.

If you are visiting on holiday then you are welcome to call any one on the committee and they will be able to point you towards the nearest table tennis club where you will be made very welcome.

The Weymouth & District Table Tennis League itself is affiliated to Table Tennis England

National Championships – Under 10-13 year olds
Congratulations to Jess Moggeridge who has qualified for the National Championships for the 2nd season running. This year they are being held in Kettering on the weekend of June 17th/18th.
While most player’s seasons are over, Jess has upped her training schedule to 6 practices a week, which also includes a weekly trip to Bournemouth Sports for coaching with Rowden Fullen.

Plymouth 2 Star
Last weekend 9 Weymouth players made their way down to Plymouth and enjoyed a great days play, also coming away with 4 sets of medals. It was the first taste of this form of competition for several players, which is a step up from National Cadet League and everyone benefitted from the experience.
Jamie Blair won the cadet (under 15) boys singles event and Ethan Gear was runner up in the consolation event. Jess Moggeridge won the girls under 15 consolation event and Sophie Storey was the runner up.

‘This Girl Can’
It is the 5th week of ‘This Girl Can’ at the Wey Valley Tennis Centre on Wednesday and Matt Ware joins us as a guest coach. Nearly 50 players have taken part so far and more are welcome. Just turn up and play and the cost is just £1.
We will be taking a break during the half term holiday and return on June 7th for 3 further weeks.

National Cadet League Trials 2017-2018
Initial invitations to the existing squad have now been sent out. New and existing players are invited to attend 2 special training and trials evenings that will take place on Mondays June 5th and 12th at the Wey Valley Tennis Centre, 6.30pm to 8.30pm, cost £3.
National Junior League dates will be published soon and invites sent out. New and existing NJL players (under 18 as of January 1st 2018) are also invited to join the trials.

This year’s AGM takes place at the Frank Reynolds Community Centre (Springfield Club) on Wednesday May 24th, 7.30pm start. The presentation of this year’s League Trophies, Handicap Cup and Mainstop Trophy will take place after the AGM.

Half Term Practice Dates
Please note that there will be a practice on Saturday May 27th at the normal times. There is then a break for a week until Monday June 5th. This includes no practice on Wednesday May 31st.
We are now trialling an adult open session on Saturday mornings between 10am and 11.30am. This will run at the same time as the youth beginners session which is a much smaller session, so tables will be available. Please note this is not a coaching session and it is best to come with a practice partner. We are looking into a new adult beginners coaching slot for next season.

Wey Valley Summer League
More players joined the Summer League last week as we continue the ladder stage of the competition. There were 3 groups of players competing to move up or down the ladder.
