You don’t have to play league table tennis to join CTTC-come along on a social basis and enjoy yourself. Many of our members that started on this basis have actually asked later to play in the league! You don’t have to spend a fortune to join CTTC-many of our members pay an annual subscription which offers very good value and includes league fees and other match expenses for those playing in the league. Annual subscriptions for non league play members is even cheaper. The subscription year runs from September to August.
You don’t have to live in Cramlington to play Table Tennis at CTTC. We have people attending from Newcastle, Gosforth, Gateshead, Wallsend, Wallsend, Whitley Bay, North Shields, Blyth, Bedlington, Ashington, Morpeth, Washington, Seaton Delaval, Seghill, Annitsford, Ponteland, Wideopen and other places in Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. Some folks have come from as far away as Belgium (though they do live locally now).
For those wishing to come only occasionally there is a weekly sessional rate. Currently this is £5.00 for Adults and £4.00 for Juniors. Although this is good value the annual subscription rate is a better deal for regular attenders.
You do have to enjoy table tennis to join CTTC, otherwise you will be out of place because we at CTTC play to enjoy the sport as we take an active step towards a healthy recreation.
