Frequently Asked Question

Before playing, do I have to become a member? What are the costs of membership?

Spectators are free of charge, but to play you need to have either a daily or a monthly membership. The pricing is explained on the MEMBERSHIP AND COACHING page.

DO I NEED TO HAVE A PARTNER TO PLAY?

No , the club uses the open play system which means you do not need to have a partner to play , you can challenge a table and play other club members too.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO PLAY TABLE TENNIS?

We recommend to have soft sole shoes, shorts, and a t-shirt. You can bring your own racket or you can rent one from the club.”

What about TT behavior, courtesy and conduct?

Here are some guidelines, modified somewhat from the ones suggested by USATT - to be used, monitored and enforced by each TT player, a more detailed version is on display at the club:

  • * Players are to conduct themselves in a sportsman-like manner.
  • * Loud or offensive language is not tolerated. Observe quiet when nearby a game in process.
  • * Members are expected to cooperate in setting up and taking down the equipment (tables and nets) and in cleaning up the area after playing.

  • * Willful damage to the Club's equipment - or the facility - is not tolerated.
  • * Table tennis courtesies are to be observed
  • * During open play, which is most of the time, place your magnetic ID card (this will be provided to you) on the field board space next to a designated active table and you will be next in line - second in line if somebody else’s ID card is already there.
  • * A "let" is called when a stray ball enters your court. No one will unnecessarily pass through a playing area in use.
  • * When another player is waiting, please - no "table hogging."
