Are you interested in helping others grow their confidence and self-esteem?

Would you like to play your part in improving the health and wellbeing of young and old, help people achieve personal goals and maybe even their dreams, bring out the best in people’s character and become a role model in your community?

Then coaching is for you!

You don’t have to be an Olympic Gold Medal winning table tennis champion to be a coach – but you do need enthusiasm, a keen interest in helping the sport grow and the ability to engage, encourage and inspire others.

Table Tennis Wales can guide you through the process of becoming a licensed coach – with Level 1 and Level 2 coaching courses held here in Wales.

If you are interested in becoming a coach, the accompanying pages will give you more information. And if you have any questions, you can always contact the Table Tennis Wales team at
