I hope you don’t mind me emailing you but I write to you as Clubs & Disability Officer at Table Tennis England. I won’t continue to use your email but I’m just writing to ask for your help as a one off.
We have today, 7th August, launched the Table Tennis England PremierClub Programme for the 2014/15 season. We know there are lots of Table Tennis Clubs playing in leagues across the country that aren’t part of our programme and we’d be really interested to inform them of the benefits attached to being a PremierClub for this season.
I’d really appreciate it if you were able to forward this email to the clubs in your league or mention the programme to them. It would be a real help to us to possibly attract some more clubs to the programme but also to provide some benefits for clubs who aren’t currently affiliated to Table Tennis England.
THE PREMIERCLUB PROGRAMME
Our aim is to create a national network of clubs that work together to grow participation in table tennis and support existing players to create a community from which future Internationals will emerge.
We encourage Table Tennis Clubs and Centres to join the PremierClub programme so that this can be achieved.
In return for joining the programme your club will receive some benefits and the ongoing support of Table Tennis England’s national and area staff.
Once part of the programme you will be encouraged to work towards Clubmark Accreditation, Sport England’s mark of high quality clubs, with the support of Table Tennis England staff.
Obtaining Clubmark Accreditation is a significant achievement for any sports club and can open doors to various funding opportunities.
Thank you for your time and I wish you the best of luck with the season!
