Coronavirus update

January 5 update

Following the Government announcement regarding lockdown 3.0, all clubs, league, competition or coaching activity stops with immediate effect.

This includes all previous exemptions with regards to indoor and outdoor play. The only table tennis that is able to continue is within your own home if with members of your own household or support bubble.


We therefore move back to Stage 1 of our Ready to Return pathway. We will confirm as soon as we can what stage of the ready to return roadmap we will be able to return to once lockdown 3.0 ends.

Please stay safe as we wait for our sport to resume. If you have any questions please contact our helpdesk.

When any updated Government guidance is published, we will move as soon as we can to consider what it means for table tennis across the country. We will aim to respond to any changes promptly but we may have to wait for the Government to provide the precise details of their guidance and advice.


Our series of stages through which we anticipate table tennis activity outside of the home resuming are below:

  • Stage 1 – Play and exercise at home and limited outdoor play (where we are now)

  • Stage 2 – Limited club activity

  • Stage 3 – Preparing for localised competition

  • Stage 4 – Local competition resumption

  • Stage 5 – Restricted national competitions


In all matters, the health and wellbeing of all our members, volunteers, suppliers and staff remain the key priority for the Board of Table Tennis England at this time of uncertainty and change.
