Q. Where and when do you play?

Check our Main Calendar in case of last-minute changes. Normally, we play:
 
  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. - Saville Centre

 Q. Can I just drop in?
   
Yes; drop-ins are always welcome (cost $5). However, since Friday nights are our league night and no tables are set aside specifically for drop-ins, there is no guarantee that spots will be available. If space is available, drop-ins on Fridays will be placed (on request) on the ladder system for that night only at 7:30 p.m. (the late deadline for those with table assignments).

   
  Q. What does membership cost?   
 
CategoryFee
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, 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?

  

Check out the following database.

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.
