Urban Table Tennis Club was founded in 2002 in Barnet, north London. We grew quickly and soon started to provide sessions such as holiday camps and our Masterclass elite training programme.
Among the first Masterclass players were Alim Hirji and William Maybanks, who went on to play for England. Both still play in national league competitions, in the UK and Germany respectively.
In more recent years Denise Payet, a 2018 Commonwealth Games team bronze medallist, Joe Hunter and Millie Rogove have represented England in international competition.
In 2007 Urban TTC began to coach in a number of schools across north London and Hertfordshire, providing a variety of sessions including breakfast, lunchtime and after-school clubs. We have also conducted GCSE PE lessons in a number of secondary schools.
The club was selected in 2015 by Table Tennis England to be one of nine Talent Development Centres nationwide to provide sessions for young upcoming players with the potential to play for England. In 2017, we were chosen to be a Centre of Excellence, charged with increasing the quality and quantity of players ready to play for the national team.
The Urban coaching team includes former professionals and top England players. Each coach has a professional ethos and is able to cater for all abilities as well as following the club’s motto in pushing everyone to go from “zero to hero”.
