Great Boxing Day Competition!!

We had 34 entrants and some really great games. Well done to all the participants and winners. Jake Cutts for winning the Flat Bat Competition, Stuart J Sykes for winning Handicap Singles and I am proud to have won the draw doubles with Jake Cutts.

Thank you so much to Raymond Hurst for running the tournament so efficiently, and Joe Race for seeing that things ran smoothly, it was a great day!!

31st October 2018

Great visit today from: BARNSLEY FOOTBALL CLUB

And it looks like (from where I was standing) that there is some very good table tennis players among them. This was a team building exercise knockout competition, and turned out to be very competitive as well as very noisy (especially from the team coach). All in all a very enjoyable event to watch and seemed to be enjoyed by all who played as well. You're welcome back anytime guys.


10th October 2018

Grand Opening by The Mayor of Barnsley - You are cordially invited to the official opening of the Barnsley Table Tennis Club located in Hope House Church - Blucher Street, Barnsley.

Great day today, not only is it my birthday, but we also found out that we had a new table tennis venue in Barnsley YES!!

The new venue is on the first floor of Hope House Church - across from the YMCA on Blucher Street, Barnsley.

We need to do some decorating and stuff but its looks fantastic.


Monday 13th July 2015

Great turn out at the Barnsley Championships - this year it was decided that the finals would be played on the same day.

As expected Ian Denton was in fine form taking the Mens & Veterans Singles


Sunday 21st April 2013

A great Barnsley championship occurred today with current mens singles champion Ian Denton only spectating due to a foot injury.

As predicted Darren Lindley made the final with new finalist John Race facing him - this will occur on finals night Tuesday 30th April 2013 at the YMCA. Well done to everyone who attended the competition.


Monday 3rd September 2012

Thanks to Debbie Firth for the newspaper scans she so kindly sent me - you can see them in the Photos section of the website. If anybody else has any photos or clippings regarding table tennis in Barnsley then please lets have a copy so everyone can see. Thanks.


Thursday 7th June 2012

It is very sad to report the death of a great former Barnsley table tennis champion, Brian Biggar.

Brian was Veterans Champion in the seasons (65/66) - (67/68) & (69/70)

I have known Brian for many years and have shared some very happy table tennis memories with him.

Brian is pictured in the Photos section of this website with some of the winning closed championship players of 1970

He will be very sadly missed


Saturday 25th February 2012

Launched this website.

I thought it was about time that everybody (with a interest) had the opportunity to see some history, stats, photo's & video of the Barnsley & District Table Tennis Association. An invitation is hearby thrown open to all persons having information, photos, clippings, video, in fact anything you deem interesting regarding table tennis in Barnsley over the last 80 years. The easiest way to get information to me is via email just click the Contact Me link at the bottom of each page.
