BACA College in Partnership with Brighton table tennis club

New Programme For September 2019

We are pleased to announce that BACA College is now in partnership with Brighton Table Tennis Club (BTTC) to bring an exciting new programme starting from September 2019.  Students can choose from a wide range of A-Levels, BTEC and ESOL programs and spend afternoons training and coaching table tennis.

We are incredibly excited about the huge potential of this new partnership.  Students that enrol on the program will not only receive BTTC's top class coaching and coach training, but also the highest level of pastoral care and opportunities from both the College and the Table Tennis Club.

Applicants and parents/carers are welcome to come to the BTTC in Kemptown for a meeting about the Academy at 7.30pm on Tuesday the 5 February 2019.

Students will have access to top class Table Tennis coaching both here at BACA and at BTTC's home venue in Kemptown.  All students on the programme will get their Table Tennis England Level 1 coaching qualification and receive opportunities to gain experience in assisting with sessions in primary schools, with adults with learning disabilities, in care homes and many more diverse and interesting places.

For players that are keen to train and compete at the highest level, BTTC will be able to tailor a bespoke training program that will include access to practice with our Junior Elite and Senior British League teams.

About BTTC

Brighton Table Tennis Club (BTTC) was founded in 2007 with two worn-out tables in the Brighton Youth Centre and the strong belief that table tennis can be used as a powerful tool in engaging people of all ages and transforming lives.  Today the club has its own centre with 10 tables in Kemptown and runs 100 tables across the city in parks, squares, schools, sheltered housing schemes, a centre for homeless people, sports centres and a psychiatric hospital.  It also works in two prisons outside the city. 

BTTC is also home to a centre of sporting excellence.  It has three teams in the Senior British League, twelve teams in the Brighton League and many Junior teams playing in various competitions.

If you wish to find out more about the upcoming programme, please contact the founding director, Tim Holtom via email or call 07985141788 with your questions.
