Chelmsford & District Table Tennis League, Chelmsford City Council and the Riverside Leisure Centre are working together to provide weekly sessions for social table tennis players to get together for a couple of hours of table tennis. The sessions are held in the Sports Hall at the Riverside Leisure Centre in Chelmsford between 10am and 12pm on Tuesdays in school term-time (see below for a list of dates).

We would like you to tell anyone who might be interested in coming to the sessions. Got a retired neighbour? Is your mum looking for a new hobby? Do you know someone that used to play? We want anybody interested to come along. We will have at least two league players at each session doing some coaching and giving tips. Bats and balls are supplied, and it costs just £3 for two hours of table tennis.

From the league's point of view we would love to see some of these new players eventually join the league but there is the general benefit of having more people playing table tennis and promoting it to their friends and children.

If you know anyone who is interested, please ask them to email or contact me on 07857 718351 and we will get back to them with more details.

NB:   It is intended to hold Bat & Chat sessions every Tuesday in 2018 EXCEPT for the following dates when schools are on holiday: 13th February, 3rd & 10th April, 29 May, 24 & 31 July, 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th August, 23 October, 25 December. Every other Tuesday there will be a Bat & Chat session.

And if you want to hear your Coaching Officer spreading the good news on BBC Essex, follow the link and listen to the broadcast starting at 2.29.50.
