Welcome to the Berkeley Table Tennis Club
With construction at James Kenney Community Center finally completed, we'll resume playing table tennis at the James Kenney gymnasium effective Friday, July 7th, 2017. Saturday night group training/open play will also restart on Saturday, July 8th, 2017.
Note that we'll open on Fridays at 6:00 PM for warm-up. Round robins will start shortly after 7:00 PM. Saturday night group training/open play sessions are between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM. See you all at the gym!
We're a group of people who love table tennis. We play a round robin tournament every Friday evening from 6:00 PM until 9:45 PM, and we have a training program and open play every Saturday evening from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM. We're very fortunate to call the James Kenney Recreation Center our home.
Want to play?
You're in luck! We're an open club that's always accepting new members. The following table should give you a good idea of the ways to let us know you'll be competing on Friday night:
|Who are you?||When to arrive|
|A new member without a rating||Before 6:15 PM, so we can determine your rating before the evening's round robin.|
|A new member with a USATT or other club rating||Before 6:45 PM, since your rating has already been determined (we still need about 5 minutes to enter you into our system).|
|A returning member arriving on-time||Before 6:50 PM.|
|A returning member arriving late||You need to call or send a text message to the late line on the day of the round robin tournament before 6:45 PM. The new late line phone number is 510-926-6913. Text messages are preferred but a voicemail message is also fine. When leaving a voicemail, please speak your name slowly and clearly.|
What are the fees?
The fee to play is $5.00 for adults (18 and older) and $3.00 for juniors (17 and younger), per day.
If you have a BTTC or USATT rating of over 2,300, there is no fee for the Friday round robin.
