Table tennis facility grant schemes open for 2016/17

Table tennis clubs can now apply for grants to improve their facilities as Table Tennis England has opened its Facility Grants process for 2016/17.

The grants cover three areas:

Club Table Grant Scheme
This will fund from one to four tables for clubs specifically wishing to increase participation by introducing new tables in club venue(s). It does not replace old tables.
Final closing date: 1st February 2017.

Club Upgrade Fund
With a maximum award of £10,000, this is to improve facilities currently used for table tennis or that will be used for table tennis through upgrading elements such as lighting, flooring or creating storage to extend space available to table tennis.
Final closing date: 1st September 2016

Dedicated Multi-table Clubs/Facilities Fund
Grants from £20,000 to £100,000 towards extending or building a new facility. Please note, for the 2016/17 year we are working with projects who submitted their expression of interest in 2015/16 as projects must be delivered by 31st March 2017.
Awards for this fund are likely to be committed in the first quarter of the financial year due to the complexity of the projects and length of time they require to be completed.
