About Tom

about-tomI am a Table Tennis England qualified coach (level 2) and work with players of all standards.

I was a late comer to table tennis. I played on and off during my youth, but it wasn’t until I was in my mid-twenties when I started playing regularly.

The seemingly simple challenge of hitting a small ball, with a small bat, over a small net soon turned into a lasting passion. The sport is not as simple as it looks!

To develop the movement, coordination and technique to return balls travelling up to 100 kilometres per hour can take a lifetime to master.

I played for many years in the Central London Table Tennis League for Finsbury Table Tennis Club, before setting up and representing Highbury Table Tennis club. In 2013, I moved to Cambridge and now coach and play in the city and surrounding areas. I’m currently captain for the Cambridge-Parkside Table Tennis Club first team.
