Mass Equipment Allocation Announced

Table Tennis Ireland is delighted to announce plans for a major equipment allocation which will see schools and clubs around the country benefit from the Irish Sports Council's Sports Capital funding programme. 

Following on from the associations recently successful application process with the ISC, the initiative will now aim to drive participation of the sport in 2016 and open new doors for clubs and schools alike as they aim to develop and grow in the coming years. 

During the recent application process, there was significant interest from numerous schools/clubs/projects. The Association is delighted with the response of its members, as the willingness and enthusiasm to drive the sport at local level is very much evident across the country.

Following due consideration, it has been decided that all applicants received a proportion of the equipment requested based on the following primary criteria;
