Table Tennis Life             



Q. Where and when does the club play?

From Sep-Jun we normally play 5 days a week as listed below.

  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. - Saville Centre

In Jul-Aug the schedule changes to three days a week (Mon & Fri evenings and Wed daytime.)

Check our Main Calendar for details on times and locations


 Q. Can I just drop in?   

Yes; drop-ins are always welcome anytime we play (cost $5)Fridays are our league night, however, and space for drop ins may be limited. If a drop in wishes to play on a league table they will be placed (on request) in vacant spots on the ladder system for that night only at 7:30 p.m. (the late deadline for those with pre-assigned table positions).  They will play in a round robin as part of the group assigned to that table, but their points will not count.

Before deciding on an annual membership, we recommend that you drop in first a few times.  

  Q. What does membership cost?   
Category Fee
Adult (18-60) $200
Senior (60+) $150
Junior*/Student** $150
Note: All memberships are for one year from the date of approval.  There are no
fractional memberships e.g. 1/2 year or monthly.  Dropping in costs $5/session. 

*A Junior must be under 18 as of Sep 1.

**A Student must be enrolled full-time in an accredited provincial institution.


Q. What equipment do I need?

Please wear comfortable gym clothing and clean, non-marking, rubber-soled gym shoes.  Outside footwear is not allowed in the gyms.  You should avoid tops that are the colour of a ball (i.e. no white or orange tops) and bring you own racquet and a ball.


Q. Where can I buy good equipment?

A number of online stores sell high quality table tennis equipment (e.g. Paddle Palace, Megaspin,  Table Tennis Express).  The items found in stores like   Costco, Canadian Tire & WalMart are usually unsuitable for serious players.

Q. How do I decide what equipment to buy?

Q. Is Table Tennis the same as Ping Pong?

Yes, Table Tennis is an Olympic sport (since 1988) and a healthy and affordable form of recreation. Ping Pong is just another name for the same game.
