The WTTC’s prestigious Triples League has just got underway and runs until the end of May. Five teams will be battling it out in a series of singles and doubles matches to lift the club’s most coveted competition award.

The Wolds Table Tennis Club has between 35-40 regular players and puts on three sessions every week for players of all standards, ranging from improvers to former county league and ex-youth international players.

The club does not accept absolute beginners or current league players.

The emphasis is very much on a great social night out with the added spice of a bit of competitive table tennis.
