ABOUT

Table Tennis Fight Club (TTFC) is an exclusive club where existing members recommend other players, thus forming a select membership of high-level participants who meet in secret locations to train and ‘fight’.

New players who are not members are welcome to apply online. However, they must beat at least two current members for a chance to join the club. All members must follow the rules of the fight club.

One way to bypass the application process is to attend an open session where non-members can train with each other until they are spotted by a member. Some members reach the required standard through continuous training at the open sessions. These evening open sessions are coached and supervised by a full member, and take place in our King’s Cross venue most Mondays and Fridays. Check the events calendar for dates.

The club has four venues in central London: in Southwark (SE1), King’s Cross (NW1), West End (W1), and Barbican (EC1). See our map.

HISTORY

Founded in 2014 by Georges Sokol (aka Tyler Durden) and sponsored by Decathlon, the club offers a unique opportunity for table tennis players of a high standard to ‘fight’ against one another.

The first aim of the club is to enable its members to achieve their peak potential. Our members have the motivation to train, compete, and attain a high level of performance. The club also encourages its members to promote table tennis to the general public by playing and participating in community projects.

Although our members like to fight and win, they show good sportsmanship at all times. They are independent thinkers who value initiative and self-direction. They tend to challenge assumptions about the game and life, while respecting the views of others. Members have no role models, but seek to become their own hero.

MEMBERSHIP

INITIATION

If you have been recruited by an existing member, email membership@tabletennisfightclub.com with the name of the person who put you forward and you will be invited to a free session.

If you have not been recommended but feel you have the requisite playing level and personality, fill in our application form to be considered for an invitation. The committee will then assess your submission and decide whether you get invited to a session.

To become a fully-fledged member, you will need to prove your worth by defeating two current members in a best-of-five playoff (this holds true whether you’ve been invited or recommended). If you do not win, you will probably not be accepted. The committee’s decision is final.

SESSIONS TIMES

The open sessions take place on Mondays 8pm-10pm and Fridays 7pm-9pm, and the members-only sessions are held most Thursdays 6.30pm-9pm. Check the events calendar for dates.

LOCATION

See map below. The open sessions on Mondays/Fridays take place at the Somers Town Sports Centre near King’s Cross. The Thursday sessions take place at ‘Project Mayhem’, a secret den that is only revealed once an applicant receives an invitation. Members may arrange to fight at our other venues at any time they wish.

BENEFITS

As well as having access to a network of skilled players, members’ perks include discounted sessions, a TTFC t-shirt, and business cards. We also take part in tournaments and host monthly social events for our members. We have a team in the top division of the London league where we play weekly against other clubs all over London from October to March.
