Business Class Table Tennis is all about business people getting together to play social table tennis.
Of course, the competitive spirit of business and sport has come to the fore and the Business Class League has become quite the event!
There are several 5 to 6-week leagues throughout the year where businesses can enter teams of two players to fight it out for the Business Class Cup/Shield. When numbers permit the competition is split into grades. There are now two grades and the way things are growing we could see three grades in the next couple of years!
If you and your colleagues want a bit of competitive fun for a couple of hours an evening once a week check out the Business Class Entry page and get stuck in!
