DTTA is pleased to announce it has been awarded the Regional Satellite Club of the Year for 2015.

This is in recognition of our ongoing partnership with Primary and Secondary Schools towards increasing table tennis participation within these schools.

Our program of taster sessions over the past two years has involved over 1500 youngsters and we are currently running four Secondary after school clubs at Education Village, Polam, Longfield and Hurworth in Darlington and all are well supported.

We are also introducing a 10 week table tennis program in primary schools working with year 6 and building these sessions into the PE curriculum, currently we are involved with Gurney Pease Primary School Darlington.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers and coaches for their support and hard work in delivering these sessions and a special thank you to Dave Noutch DTTA

Head Coach for his ongoing commitment in delivering and maintaining the after school clubs.
