We welcome anyone wishing to play table tennis, either competitively or socially. MPTTA is an all-inclusive club catering for the community which especially includes All Abilities (disability) players, LGBTQIA, indigenous peoples and refugees.
Table tennis is not just fun in your garage - did you know it's an Olympic and Commonwealth Games Sport - one of the most played sports in the world? Table tennis is one of the best sports for all around fun and fitness and for socialising.
Our Association (MPTTA) is affiliated with Table Tennis Victoria and therefore with Table Tennis Australia and the International Table Tennis Federation.
There is a modest fee to become a registered member which provides entitlement to a range of benefits including sports injury insurance, access to coaching, umpiring courses and eligibility to play in official tournaments throughout Victoria and Australia wide.
The International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) was on Thurs 3 Dec at 10.30am. MPTTA is actively involved. Celebrations included a multiagency video launched worldwide. Click on the link below to be part of this amazing celebration!!! https://youtu.be/3qpfbfx-S
The following text is adapted from a letter sent by TTV to affiliates on 7 August 2020:
"During 2025 Table Tennis Victoria (formerly Victorian Table Tennis Association) will celebrate its centenary year. As part of its plans to mark this very significant milestone, TTV has set up the “TTV History Group” which has been tasked with writing a history of the first 100 years of the VTTA/TTV. The members of this group are Bob Tuckett (Chair), John Alder, Andrew Cornell, Martin Elliget, Chris Mainland, Jim Montgomery and Brian Zammit.
The History Group wishes to tap into the vast mine of information held by players, officials, and volunteers, past and present, in Victoria (and elsewhere) which will be critical to the success of the project.
MPTTA therefore encourages its Members to assist the History Group now (and over the next few years leading up to 2025) via:
