Be Safeguarding Aware
13th February 2017
TTW have been made aware from a vigilant affiliated club that there is an email being sent to club/league organisers from a gentleman stating he is from Nigeria and offering to attend their club/league for free as part of his holiday plans and coach youngsters at the club/league. Whilst this may be a genuine offer it is very similar to a contact that TTW recevied direct a few years ago and when it was investigated it was not genuine.
Whilst TTW would not want to discourage anybody from playing/coaching table tennis it must advise clubs/leagues of their duty of responsibility to juniors which is that all coaches have a UKCC qualification, a current UK DBS certificate and up to date qualifications in safeguarding and first aid.
If any club/league feels they wish to respond to this gentlemans offer then it is their responsibility to ensure the above are in place or to ensure that he is supervised at all times by a coach who does have all of the above in place.
Welsh National Championships
The finals and semi-finals of the Senior and under 21 events will be playes as the best of 7 games, all other rounds will be the best of 5 games
European U21 Championships
6th February 2017
It wasnt to be for Charlotte Carey at the first U21 European Championships held in Sochi this week.
2 wins and a loss in the first part of qualification meant a harder passage to roound 2. There the quality got ramped up a few notches and it was just out of reach losing to the 3 opponents on offer (Guseva, Loyen and Diaconu)
The doubles with England's number 1 Tin Tin Ho also resulted in a loss in the last 32 to an Austrian/Estonian combo.
So next up is the World Championships in Dusseldorf this coming May.

Are You Insured?
Last year a number of clubs failed to renew their insurance policy covering club equipment – if you are one of these clubs you will not automatically receive forms for this year.
CHECK YOUR INSURANCE COVER
Equipment stored at Sports Centres, Community Centres, etc. are not necessarily insured under the Centre’s own insurance policy. In fact, not every Centre will actually have “contents” insurance. It is obviously important to insure club equipment as it can be very expensive to replace.
The TTAW have an “All Risks” insurance policy with Old Oak Insurance Brokers of Carmarthen. The policy covers equipment, e.g. tables, nets, surrounds, coaching robots, etc., and trophies, owned by clubs that are affiliated to the Table Tennis Association of Wales.
The cost of insuring equipment and trophies is:
- £1.50 for each £100 new replacement value of equipment (with a £50 excess on each claim).
- £2.10for each £100 new replacement value of trophies (with a £50 excess on each claim).
There is a minimum premium payable of £10 per club.
If you wish to take advantage of this insurance cover please contact:
