Welcome to the Berkeley Table Tennis Club

Important Notice

GOOD NEWS (07/09/2021): Coach Bunny Lee's private lessons have resumed. Please contact the Coach via his email ( directly for availability (must be fully vaccinated!). However, BTTC remains closed until futher announcements. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[03/16/2020]: The BTTC Board would like to draw your attention to the first confirmed case of coronavirus infection in the Bay Area on Jan. 31, 2020 and the potential implications for us as a group. We would advise that anyone who has recently returned from China is strongly urged to wait for at least 14 days before joining us in the Friday RRs and Saturday group training. The 14-day window is important because the typical incubation period for the coronavirus is 14 days from the date a person is infected. But cases have shown patients who have been infected can transmit the virus to others even before he or she becomes symptomatic. We don't want to turn players away but we understand the seriousness of the matter and utimately this is for protecting the well being of all of us. Thanks for your understanding and coorporation!

[Before 03/16/2020]: Note that we'll open on Fridays at 6:15 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!

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.

Upcoming club closures: James Kenny Recreation Center will be closed starting from 03/16/2020 to prevent the spreading of COVID-19 in the community. Therefore, there will be no RRs on Friday and group lessons on Saturday in the coming weeks until further notice. Thanks for your patience!

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.

Want to stay up-to-date?

We have a Yahoo! Group that acts as our newsletter. We post round robin results, holiday closures and general club-related information to the group. If you'd like to, feel free to join! You can unsubscribe from the group at any time.
