The Sunday coaching sessions take place as 2 x 1.5 hour sessions with starting times of 2pm & 3.45pm. In a joint initiative with the Braintree League, coaching sessions are held at Black Notley on around 3 Sunday afternoons per month. They are usually the first 3 Sundays each month from September to June, though there are occasional variations to this programme. For details see BNCATTC Coaching.
There are 2 x 1.5 hour sessions available – 2pm and 3.45pm and the cost is £4.00 per session.
The coaching is run by ETTA qualified and DBS checked coaches and experienced helpers and is intended for beginners and improvers of all ages, not just juniors. Up to 6 tables are available and equipment is provided for beginners. We aim to try to give players some one-to-one tuition whenever possible though player numbers may prevent this from time to time.

Safeguarding can be viewed as the ‘umbrella’ that protects all of table tennis through examples of good practice, policies and guidelines, whilst child protection is the management of reported issues and concerns.
Working with young people is key for the expansion of table tennis and, with many programmes, Table Tennis England try to give the opportunities for young people to participate and help them on their way to achieving their sporting and social ambitions. Additionally Table Tennis England is very proud of its ethos of inclusivity throughout our sport and recognises the key part that vulnerable adults have to play. It is very important that support is given to the volunteers, staff, players and parents by way of good practice guidelines and this downloadable document. Table Tennis England’s Safeguarding and Vulnerable Adults Policy and Guidelines is part of the practice at our club.
We would fail as the National Governing Body for table tennis in England if programmes of training and competitions were not available for all involved in our sport and, at the same time, we must ensure that everyone’s welfare is a priority and the standards of all those involved is maintained.
