Hope you and your families are all fit and well during this third lockdown. We hope most of you have had your first vaccine jab and are feeling more positive and that the coming months might see an end to our current restrictions.
Table Tennis England have been active in advising clubs and Leagues of the best and safest way to get started again and are putting regular updates on their website.
The freezing of TT membership for this season 2020-21will be most welcome and details below also includes extra befits for those who renewed their membership for this year.
Keep safe everyone, not long now we hope.
We'd like to let you know that Table Tennis England is freezing fees and offering membership deals as we help to get everyone back playing after lockdown.
For the 2021/22 season, Compete membership will be set at £16 for Seniors and £8 for Cadets or Juniors. The Compete Plus element of membership is proposed to stay at £22 – the fourth year in a row of no rise in fees. Club Play membership, introduced this season, would continue to be free.
In addition, as a thank you to those members who renewed this season, we are offering a 50% credit towards 2021/22 membership.
Anyone who is a valid Compete or Compete Plus Senior member for this season will be eligible to request £8 off their membership for 2021/22 (£4 for Cadets and Juniors).
For those who have not yet renewed for this season, but who wish to get back to playing before the end of the season, we are offering a 15-month membership for the price of 12.
You can sign up from May 1st for membership which will last through to July 31st, 2022 – ensuring you are covered by our insurance for your return to play as restrictions are eased in the next few months.
The plan was agreed by the Board at its meeting last Friday and Table Tennis England Chief Executive Sara Sutcliffe said: “Our members have stood by us in these difficult times and we are standing by them.
“We want to ensure that everyone who wants to get back to playing in competitions and leagues can do so as soon as possible and to thank all those who have continued to support our work throughout the last year by renewing their membership, despite the limited opportunities to play.”
Full details of these initiatives will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, restrictions remain in place - please click HERE to read our latest coronavirus statement.
