Table Tennis England are allowing South Yorkshire to retain the services of Andrea Holt – Development & Volunteering Officer – North, with a view to progressing the BeTT scheme, which when implemented, may arrest the gradual fall in membership which we are experiencing.

In return for Andrea’s support, Table Tennis England require the below mentioned survey to be completed by a substantial number of players and officials from the Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield leagues.

The consequence of NOT completing the survey is that Andrea’s time and support will be deemed unnecessary by TTE and therefore withdrawn.

This would be a catastrophic situation, in view of the excellent work she has already provided in our County, when we were granted “ Priority Zone” status.

The Sheffield executive committee asks you to complete this survey in order that our leagues can retain Andrea’s services.

Club secretaries will recall at the November league meeting it was agreed to expand and reconvene our Development Committee, in order to debate the way forward for table tennis in the South Yorkshire leagues.

Please help your executive committee by completing the attached survey.

Many thanks,

On behalf of the Sheffield Executive committee

Table tennis news – Rob Loxley 23 November 2017


Tim Wright (Abbeydale TTC) is now a UKCC level one coach having qualified along with nineteen other students, under the tutorship of Table Tennis England’s coaches - Sally Shutt and Chris Parker at the Sheffield Institute of Sport. Their assessments took place on the 5th November under the scrutiny of Sally, Chris and Andrea Holt. The course which leads to a fully licensed qualification was also successfully negotiated by eleven other local players: - Abbeydale’s Zoltan Kulics, Simon Ryalls and Harry Sheen. Wadsley Bridge’s Trevor Parsons and Steve Cross were also successful as were Vulcan’s Vicky Johnston, Lewis Powell-Pepper and Rob Loxley. Craig Hastie (Scorpions), Dave Aspinall ( Hallam Grange) and Mazaffar Hussain (Sheffield United Community Foundation) completed the roll of successful local students.

In order to progress our sport throughout the city, the onus now falls squarely on the shoulders of these newly qualified coaches to pass on their knowledge and skills to other potential players in particular the youngsters in primary and junior schools.
