Draycott & Long Eaton Table Tennis Club (the East Midlands' biggest table tennis centre), will be starting a weekly group for wheelchair users in January, every Thursday from 12/1/2023, 5:30-7pm for juniors and beginners and 7-8:30pm for adults and more experienced players.

Led by a licenced coach (UKCC certified, DBS, insured etc.), it'll be a small group comprising experienced wheelchair players of any age, teenage athletes looking for opportunities to switch sports, or beginners who would like to try out table tennis for the first time.

Bats and balls will be provided. The venue is wheelchair accessible, has accessible parking bays, an accessible WC and changing rooms, wheelchair friendly table tennis tables and a social area for relatives/carers.

It's a new group and an opportunity to be "on the ground floor" in setting its direction.

There will be a minimal charge (£5 or less for juniors).
