Welcome to Kidlington Forum Table Tennis Club, a premier club with purpose-built facilities, situated 5 miles north of Oxford.

Noticeboard

Practice Sessions

Reminders:

  • Please do not put up tables unless a supervisor is at hand to supervise you: if you don't know how to operate the handle safely, the table can become unstable.
  • Remember that you need to book your practice session: this keeps sessions from being overcrowded.
  • The tables in the main storeroom should be used for all open sessions, coaching sessions and practice sessions. (Blue nets and new scoring machines should only be used for league matches and certain competitions; this should be stored in the middle storeroom.)

Make sure you follow this guidance, in order to minimise hassle for our volunteer session supervisors.
