Welcome to Kidlington Forum Table Tennis Club, a premier club with purpose-built facilities, situated 5 miles north of Oxford. All are welcome to come along to one of our open practice sessions.
At the Pride of Table Tennis awards ceremony at the end of March, Anne Borrowdale (a member of Kidlington Forum TTC) won the prestigious Volunteer of the Year Award.
Anne is the Oxford and District Table Tennis Association’s development officer which she undertakes on a purely voluntary basis. In this capacity she puts in countless hours organising, coaching and developing table tennis. She has worked with the Sport’s governing body, Table Tennis England, on the BeTT project aimed at promoting table tennis in Oxford. She has steered through 12 people to become newly qualified coaches and has grown the sport in the Cowley area. She supports the City Council’s Ping! project which thrived in the past year with the popular Ping Pong Parlour and play for everyone on the outdoor tables situated throughout the City. It has resulted in a number of players turning out for the sessions she operates at Cowley. These include open sessions and coaching for +55 beginners which has particularly benefitted women. She organised a summer league for those of all abilities and ages. It was so popular it is happening again this year.
Anne’s work has culminated in the formation of a new club; the Oxford Community Table Tennis Club. It will operate in Cowley and Headington and will cater primarily for social play but will give the opportunity, for those who want it, to play competitively. Anne is a worthy winner of the award.
