Welcome to the Berkeley Table Tennis Club
GOOD NEWS (07/09/2021): Coach Bunny Lee's private lessons have resumed. Please contact the Coach via his email (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly for availability (must be fully vaccinated!). However, BTTC remains closed until futher announcements.
Starting August 18th, our fees for Friday RR and Sat Open play will change to $8 for adults and $5 for juniors (16 and under) and seniors. These changes are to accommodate for increased facilities costs.
We're a group of people who love table tennis. We play a round robin tournament every Friday evening from 6:15 PM until 10:00 PM sharp, 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. You are encouraged to leave a text message even you will come before 6:50 PM|
|A returning member arriving late||You need to send a text message or call to the late line on the day of the round robin tournament before 6:50 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 for Friday RR and Sat Open play is $8.00 for adults (17 and older) and $5.00 for juniors (16 and younger) and seniors (65+).
If you have a BTTC or USATT rating of over 2,300, there is no fee for the Friday round robin.
