More Info About Table Tennis

DENMAN ACTIVITY CENTRE TABLE TENNIS 

Table tennis is a wonderful sport for all ages and abilities.  It can be played well into the senior years. Our table tennis group has been active now for over 12 years.  We play year round and welcome new members at any time.  If you are new to the sport or have not played for some time we are happy to provide coaching.

The DAC has excellent table tennis facilities.  The high ceiling gym has an outstanding hardwood playing surface with superb lighting, heating and air conditioning.  The table tennis equipment is high quality with tournament grade tables and accessories, including a training robot.  At full capacity the gym accommodates five courts and twenty players in singles and doubles play.

We currently meet twice weekly; Wednesdays from 6 to 9 pm and Sundays from 9 am to Noon.  Because we share the gym with other users the equipment is set out and put away at each session and the gym is cleaned for the next group.

Players have three playing options:

  • Drop-in: $3 per session per person
  • Full membership: $150 per year (adult), youth (under 19) $75 per year when a parent is also a member. Membership allows full access to the Fitness Centre and all court sports, Pickleball, table tennis and badminton. Contact Sue Stewart for membership information at 3352441@telus.net
  • Private gym bookings: Drop-in and membership fees apply but the gym must be reserved through deNeen Baldwin to avoid any program conflicts.  Contact deNeen at dbid@telus.net

Non marking gym shoes (court shoes) are mandatory.  Players must supply their own blade but loaners are available for players just starting out.  We can also make custom blades on-island to your specification.

At present all Covid restrictions apply; players must be double vaccinated and have a valid QR code.  Masks are mandatory in the facility but are not required during active play.  These restrictions are regularly revised according to Public Health guidelines.

If you have further inquiries please contact Peter Marshall at 250-335-0489 or plmarshall@telus.net.  I would be happy to answer your questions.
