Brand New Table Arrived
With our players help, the new table final got into our club. Now we have three high-quality tables for players to enjoy!
We had purchased another tournament quality table that was used in the 2012 US Open in Las Vegas. This is our second very high quality table and yes, she is bright blue like her sister.

After a successful pilot period for the month of December, we have decided to go live with the weekly reservation system. This will now hopefully prevent players from driving into the club with the disappointment of not being able to play. You can now reserve your spot each week by going to the following link: https://www.burlingtontabletennisclub.com/about/the-club/ The form will normally be available the prior Sunday at 19:00 ET and will close on the Friday at 18:40. If the reservations reach the 17 player limit, the form will no longer be available for that week. Walk-ins are still welcomed, if space is available. Thanks
BTTC will be closed on the following days: Oct. 4, 2019 and Oct. 11, 2019 – Brandt

All Please be aware that the Club will be closed on Friday April 12th as the arena has a tournament and on April 19th due to Good Friday. Our last session will be on Friday May 31st. Our semi annual refreshment party will be held at the Judge and Jury (Mainway and Walkers) on Friday, May 17th therefore the club will close at 9 PM instead of the usual 10 PM. Prizes will be awarded for the ladder, and most improved players. During the first week of June, I will need some of you to help move the tables to my residence. Thank you all. Yvan
To all Please take the time to read. It is important. On Friday, we attempted to increase the number of players on the floor by dedicating a “doubles only” table. Well, although players definitely enjoyed themselves playing doubles, the overall experiment was a failure. Simply stated, we rely on players to know when to play when it’s their turn, however the more players on the floor the more difficult this becomes and yesterday was a confirmation of this fact. Some players got to play 6 to 8 times while other played only 3 to 4 times. This is simply not acceptable. I do not want to implement a method where players get assigned a number and play in turn but Continue reading
All Please remember that the club is closed tonight.. Sessions will restart as regular up to April 2019 as usual every Friday. Last week, attendance was much lower than usual, for no obvious reasons. See you next friday Yvan
All I believe that our first session was a success. The new floor is good and dampens the bounce of the ball however renders the room very noisy, which we cannot do anything about. Tables are as good as we left them 15 months ago, so is the space available to play. Unfortunately, we had to refuse entry to over 12 people that wanted to play due to the limited number of tables. To allow sufficient playing time, we cannot accept more players that our currently limit of 17 players… No way around that. We will continue trying to find suitable locations to host our club but per experience, this has been impossible so far. We had 2 ladder matches, Continue reading
To all, We have 2 Club closures this year and the first is September 28th 2018. Yvan
