Please note that due to school exams, we are now closed until re-opening on 17/6/24

Congratulations to Callum Finch.

Callum won the Junior Shield at the Tamworth Tournament on 4th Feb.
He also beat a Div1 player in the Hard Bat competition, and has recently
scored his first wins in Div 3.

Congratulations also to Ronnie (centre) for winning the Non-League group,
beating a div3 player en route.

Carys (right) finished second in the group and Lewis (left) although not winning
anything, had an enjoyable tournament.


Congratulations to Di St Ledger, who won the Ladies Doubles title at the Midland VETTS tournament
in October 2023. She was partnered by Jane Vickers (above).


Regrettably Ian Knights, our Head Coach since Dec 2021, has had to step down from the role as the
Parkinsons Disease he has been suffering from over the last year or so has now restricted his mobility
to the extent that he no longer feels able to continue in his former capacity. I am sure I speak for
the whole club when I say a heartfelt "thank you" for all his work in developing the junior players
over the last two years.

As a result, our new Head Coach is now Di St Ledger.

Christmas 2022

Regrettably, because of league matches, we could not find a spare week in which to play our
usual Christmas doubles competition.

However, we did arrange for a club Christmas Party at Ego's restaurant in Lichfield,
which was attended by around 20 of our members.


We have recently acquired a new table

The table pictured was used at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham 2022, and was subsequently donated to Lichfield TTC in October as part of Table Tennis England's Legacy programme. We are now putting it to good use, for coaching juniors, match play, and general club use, as well as projected use in the wider community wherever possible.

Please note that we are now accepting new members. Occasional visitors will also be welcome.

New rules for competitive players (in local leagues) have come into force recently.

All rubbers used in competitive play MUST carry the ITTF logo, like this:

All members, but especially league players, should check their bats to make sure they comply.
Any rubber bought within the last ten years or so should carry this logo, but make sure.


The Kaila Cup resumed after a couple of years enforced break due to Covid.

The finals were played on August 8th, with Mark Balant and Jordan Kerr being the finalists.

Roger Willetts

It is is with a great deal of sadness that I have to report that long-standing LTTC member and club coach Roger Willetts has passed away.

After a short spell in hospital, he returned home last week as the prognosis was that nothing more could be done to treat his leukemia.
He passed away at 1:30 this morning (8th Dec 2021).
I am sure I speak on the whole club's behalf when offering our appreciation for the great contribution he has made to the club since being made our official coach in 2002. Many young players who have been through the coaching courses have much to thank him for.

Please take a moment out of your day today to pause and remember a nice man who was also a fine player. Over the years I knew Roger he played in the Lichfield, Stafford, and Tamworth Leagues, and was a credit to anyone he played for, most recently our Musketeers team in 2019. He will be sorely missed.

2021 Christmas Doubles

Chris McKee Dave Knight Mark Balant Chris Latham

The Christmas drawn doubles was played on 20th Dec following the usual handicap format.
After the quarter-finals a minute's silence was held in memory of Roger Willetts, who passed away the week before.

The final was played between Chris and Dave, and Mark and Chris (above) and after an entertaining game, Chris McKee and
Dave Knight were the winners, and will enjoy their "Celebrations" of the chocolate variety over the holiday.
