How it works…

Blazing Paddles is a social and competitive league for companies in Brighton. Teams will battle it out over the ping pong table at our Monday night league matches. The league will run for 6 weeks, leading up to the final tournament. The winning team will win the Blazing Paddles trophy, and the glory of being the best staff team in Brighton!

Each week there will be 4 games of singles and 1 doubles in each match, resulting in either a win or a loss for your team. We’ll publish the results table on our Facebook page each week.

Teams are made up of 3 people; 2 main players and one reserve player who can play in doubles matches. 

Entry

It’s a £500 suggested donation for each team entered. Companies can enter one or more team. Your donation will support Brighton’s award winning table tennis club’s ongoing work to improve health, celebrate diversity and build a strong community.

About the club…

Brighton Table Tennis Club (BTTC) was founded in February 2007 with two worn-out tables in the Brighton Youth Centre and the strong belief that table tennis can be used as a powerful tool in engaging people of all ages and transforming lives.

Today the club has its own centre with 10 tables in Kemptown and runs 100 tables across the city in parks, squares, schools, sheltered housing schemes, a centre for homeless people, sports centres and a psychiatric hospital. It works in two prisons outside the city. 

More than 1,250 people play in the club’s weekly sessions. Their number includes people with learning disabilities, young people from the Brighton Travellers site, Looked After Children, people with physical disabilities, people from the LGBT community and young asylum seekers. The youngest player is 2. The oldest is 98. The club is the world’s first recognised Club of Sanctuary, for its work with refugees.
