Awards For All
Dumfries Table Tennis Club are delighted to have received a substantial amount of funding from SportScotland & Lottery Fund via their Awards For All scheme to support our continued development of table tennis in and around Dumfries.
Over the next 12 months, Dumfries TTC will be aiming to set up new satellite clubs in various areas of Dumfries & Galloway and new classes at our club venue at Dumfries TTC., We will be supporting these clubs & classes with new equipment, such as tables, barriers, bats and balls and assigning one of our qualified coaches to each new weekly session.
This project’s main objectives is the inspire the next generation of table tennis players in Dumfries while giving as many people as possible, young and old, the chance to play table tennis, regardless of what area of Dumfries they reside in.
With the increase of classes and clubs in Dumfries & Galloway, Dumfries TTC will have a bigger presence in our local community, which in return will make people aware of the variety of activities that are offer on a weekly basis, at our full time centre and through-out Dumfries & Galloway.
