Horsham TTC is a club for all that welcomes people to play table tennis irrespective of their age, ability, background or motivation level. We are particularly keen to encourage new adults and juniors take up the sport so if you fancy a go get in touch (ring Ian Ford - details below) and we will get things moving by recommending and supporting you through an appropriate introductory opportunity. If you are a more experienced player we have teams playing at all levels of the local league and some teams competing at British League standard.
Horsham TTC has twice received the national award of ETTA Premier Club of the Year at 'Participation' level, recognising the quantity and quality of coaching, competitive and casual play opportunities it provides for both adult and junior players. It benefits from excellent home facilities generously provided by Greenway School and has a fantastic set of well qualified and dedicated coaches preaching the TT gospel.
We are based at Greenway School and Collyers Sixth Form, both venues which are in Horsham.View timetable

My husband played table tennis when he was younger, and George started going to HTTC about 3 years ago. The other members there were very welcoming to him, taking him under their wing, and there is a great atmosphere there. I like the fact that it's a sport that appeals to a wide range of ages, and crosses genders. Alice has started to go now too and she really enjoys it and has met a nice group of girls there. I think it's good for the children to have different activities outside of school. The club is evolving, with increasing levels of junior membership and a more formalised social calendar is developing too.
My daughter has been going for weekly table tennis coaching at the club for approximately 18 months now and is really enjoying it. Martin, the Head Coach is fantastic at getting the best out of the children. My daughter joined at 12, which can be quite an awkward age to start a new sport, and they have been great at building her confidence and belief in her own abilities. When I pick up, you can see the enthusiam of everyone in the room, and the sessions are great fun, but still competitive. They are shortly holding a Juniors evening which will only add to the positive club atmosphere. We have found that table tennis has been a great sport for my daughter, as you can compete across all ages, and it is all inclusive.
I've been playing table tennis for almost 40 years and my son has been coming to Horsham Table Tennis Club (HTTC) with me for the last three. This club stands out for me with its' progressive attitude to bringing in and encouraging youngsters to play, the quality of coaching and facilities. The club attracts lots of players from outside the area as well. They have a great, open approach to new people, regardless of skill level. A lot of table tennis clubs seem to have limited facilities but the environment at HTTC is great. The Club is constantly evolving - they've just introduced a new "North Sussex Community Challenge" on a Friday evening which has separate skill sections, and you are matched with someone of a similar skill to help your progression - there were over 40 people there last Friday, of all ages, to play on the 12 tables. Whilst there isn't currently a facility to pay for sessions online, Ian Ford does encourage people to contact him either by phone or e-mail for further details as well as book/confirm sessions they would like to attend. It is also possible to book sessions as a block booking or to work on a pay-as-you-go basis. I hope the Club carries on building and progressing with new initiatives. They are great.
