For many years a small Table Tennis section has existed within BPSSC originating at the time when the sports club was part of Bexley Hospital’s staff facilities.
At present the section runs 4 or 5 teams in the North West Kent Table Tennis League in the winter and 2 in the league’s summer tournament. One, or sometimes two, games are played on Monday and Wednesday nights during the season in the main hall, and anyone who wishes to watch is most welcome. Matches usually start between 7:30pm and 8pm and finish at approximately 10:30pm.
The section suffers from the fact that, due to the number of events taking place in the main hall, there is no time available for a dedicated practice night during the winter or summer seasons; however practice sessions are regularly arranged in the “Closed” seasons between the winter and summer competitions. Further, it is possible to arrange “one off” practice evenings either on Sunday evenings or, when league fixtures allow, on Monday or Wednesday nights and these can be used to welcome new members who wish to gain a rough idea of where their level of ability relates to the various divisions in the North West Kent League. Players of all abilities find a suitable level in the league structure so there is no need to worry about being good enough to participate.
We would like to think that, although we are a small section, we are a friendly and welcoming one so if you would like to join us for a practice evening then please don’t hesitate to contact me at the e-mail address or telephone number below and we’ll try to arrange a suitable evening for you to come along and meet some of the members.
At present membership of the section is £20 a year with a match fee of £4 for each league game played. This membership fee is paid in addition to the club membership fee of £35 paid by all who join BPSSC.
