In 2010 a small group of table tennis enthusiasts started a humble table tennis club operating from a sports hall / gym at the old Woodlands school site along Broad lane in Coventry. We called ourselves the Woodlands table tennis club. We soon gained in popularity as word of mouth spread and we continued to earn a steady increase in attendances, often switching from one sports hall to another within the school site. After years of growth we had notice that the closure of Woodlands school as an education centre was but a few months away and that our tenure of keeping our club at this venue would have to finish too. So the search was on for another home ….
Fortunately, we found an alternative site nearby and are now using the very impressive sports hall at Hereward college off Tile Hill lane. The venue is very large, smart and clean, it has toilet and changing room facilities. We can fit all of our 10 tables into the sports hall itself. We are lucky indeed to have the opportunity to play here and without exaggeration this must be the best environment in which to play our treasured game in the district of Coventry. As of January 1st this year 2020, we decided to change our club name to reflect our changed circumstances and prestigious location. We are now Coventry table tennis club and welcome any newcomers to take a look and participate. Some pictures of the sports hall can be seen in our gallery.
