The BC Elementary Schools Table Tennis Championships is back in modified form after a hiatus of several years, first due to COVID, and then the passing of Chandra Madhosingh, the tournament’s originator, host and organizer in December of 2022. This year’s tournament will be organized by the BCTTA in an effort to take the load off of teachers and schools whose table tennis programs have lost substantial momentum since 2018 when the last event was held.
Bridgeport Sports Centre and the BCTTA is proud to announce the Pan-Asia Pacific Team Challenge Tournament at Bridgeport Sports Centre 11660 Bridgeport Road, Richmond, BC, on Sunday November 5. Team tournaments are a pleasant departure from regular single elimination knock-out tournaments because all players get to experience a lot more playing time. Don’t miss out. The deadline for entering your team is Wednesday, November 1 at 3pm.

We’re delighted to announce a new program to help BCTTA members gain competitive experience and ranking points, and have a whole lot of fun in the process. It’s a series of fun $10 drop-in tournaments each season at Bridgeport Sport Club. We are calling this new event, “The BCTTA Challenge Series”. The first season’s series will run from September 24 to December 10.
BCTTA will keep the group training spots for the above ages if he/she has been selected for the BC Junior Team in the year 2023 or before. All new players must do a tryout test prior to being accepted into the group. BCTTA will focus on physical and technical training to improve all players to be nominated to participate in the National selection tournaments and be selected on the National Junior and senior teams to present Team Canada in the international events.
