Table Tennis

Table tennis, often called the "chess of sports," embodies the essence of strategic thinking, agility, and precision. As a fast-paced indoor sport, table tennis is both easy to play and challenging to master. In our club, we not only celebrate the joy of playing this fast-paced and exhilarating sport but also nurture an environment where friendships are forged, skills are honed, and memories are created.


Our Club host tournaments, provide coaching, send players/teams from UG Table Tennis Club to attend competitions nationwide, and organise various social events and parties to foster friendship among our members.


Our Club is more than just a place to play; it is a family where players of all levels, from beginners to seasoned veterans, come together to learn, grow, and compete. We believe in fostering a spirit of inclusivity and encouragement. Whether you are here to enhance your skills, compete at a high level, or simply enjoy a friendly game, our doors are open to you.
