Sussex County Table Tennis Association

Information About

The SCTTA is affiliated to the ETTA and represents 9 leagues within Sussex with around 1000 league playing members. In recent years we have been very proactive in promoting Table Tennis and have run regular Circuit Events as well as a number of large tournaments including a Junior 4 star in Sept 2011 which had 260 entries and a Junior 4 star in Sept 2012 which has 221 entries. We have also run a number of two stars which typically attract 70-125 entries for each tournament. In July this year we have organised the Sussex open with some 150 world class players. The SCTTA is a non profit making organisation and through affiliation fees paid by Players in the Sussex Leagues supports a number (currently 12) of County Teams at Junior, Senior and Veteran level. The SCTTA also organise other events/ tournaments throughout the season and have schemes in place to develop our players.



Topical Issues

Sussex County Development

SCTTA Discussion Document

The SCTTA Discussion Document attempts to summarises the County perspective over the last 5 years and details some of the development opportunities that the County would like to progress over the next few years as discussed in past County Meetings with League Representatives. It has been circulated at recent County Meetings and more recently by email and comments received have been included. I believe there is still more work required on the definition of the developments and feed back is invited either to me or your League Representative.
