The Payneham Table Tennis Academy is a spacious, air-conditioned building with a well-maintained wooden
floor and a range of quality facilities to add to the skills development and comfort of its members.
The building houses six high quality table tennis tables available for practising and competition match
play, five of which are separately enclosed within the main playing area. The other table is situated in
an area which can be partitioned off and used by members who wish to practice using the Academy's
robotic ball feeding machine.
The well-equipped kitchen consists of tea and coffee making facilities, a refrigerator, freezer,
microwave, toaster oven, and a sandwich press which can all be used by members to prepare refreshments
as needed. The adjoining relaxation area comprises tables, chairs and a television set, and is used by
members to consume refreshments, watch television when not playing, and generally to relax.
Training aids, including the ball feeding robot, table tennis videos, and coaching assistance from
experienced players, are also available to the members of the Academy.
The Payneham Table Tennis Academy Inc. relies on a nucleus of volunteers for the smooth running of the
Academy. The Committee, Sessions' Group Leaders, coaching, maintenance of the facilities, fund raising,
publicity, are all undertaken by a dedicated group of volunteers. Without their dedication and
generosity, the club could not function.
Any member who would like to volunteer is encourage to speak to any Committee Member or Group Leader for
an overview of volunteering at the Academy. Thank-you for volunteering.
