Bournemouth Sports Table Tennis Club started in 1993, inspired by a group of local players wanting to build a new club / dedicated venue. It started as two scout huts and over the years, evolved into one of the largest clubs in the region with its own purpose-built building funded by the generosity of the South West Sports Council, Foundation for the Sports & Arts and the National Lottery.
Situated in Christchurch, Dorset, our club benefits from being next door to Bournemouth International Airport and close to direct routes into Bournemouth and Christchurch centre.
The club forms part of a group of sport clubs operating under an umbrella club called Bournemouth Sports Club.
We have up to 24/7 access to up to four tables, with large courts, wooden floor, coffee / tea making facilities, toilets (+disabled) and shower.
We have multiple teams playing in the local Bournemouth / Wimborne leagues covering all abilities and run day time practice as well as weekend coaching sessions.

World University Games Italy
For the second time in a row Chloe Thomas is representing British Universities in the World University Games in Naples. The World Uni Games is the second biggest sporting event in the world
after the Olympics. Chloe playing alongside Tin Tin Ho and Emily Bolton has taken Team GB to the Quarter Finals of the Team Event where they will meet France.
The team finished 2nd in their group beating Germany 3 - 1 and Sri Lanka 3 - 0 but losing 0 - 3 to Taipei. In the qualifying rounds they beat Hongkong 3 - 1 to reach the Quarters. Chloe and Tin Tin have each had only one defeat (in the Taipei match).
The going now gets tough as there are still 4 Asian teams left in the competition, China, Korea, Japan and Taipei plus Romania and Russia. One final boost for Chloe is she learned while in Naples that she had achieved a high 2.1 in her final degree at Bournemouth University.
Only a few weeks to go before the beginning of the preparation for the teams / players. Please make contact if your circumstances have changed for the new season.
