Falmouth Docks A Team of the mid 50s
Falmouth Docks A Team of the mid 50s

Our new club website reflects the rapidly expanding and developing Falmouth Docks Table Tennis Club which was born out of very humble beginnings way back in 1949.

All those years on we are now a professionally run table tennis club welcoming players of all ages and abilities, social players, competitive players or people just wanting to come along to get involved and meet new friends.

Falmouth Docks is very much a community club which has the English Table Tennis Association ‘PremierClub’ accreditation and has been recently awarded Development Centre status.

We are affiliated to the West Cornwall Table Tennis League, Cornwall County Table Tennis Association and the English Table Tennis Association.

The club has been administered by a Management Committee for some years. The committee is very stable with a regular band of volunteers that keep the club running, developing and continually progressing.

Falmouth Docks is one of the best known table tennis clubs in the south of England, famous for it’s name as much as the vast and talented playing squad and considerable historic achievements.

It’s the last surviving club to carry the name Falmouth Docks, formed at a time when our shipyard was overflowing with vessels and almost every sport in the town at the time was represented by a team from Falmouth Docks. The club is also one of the oldest sporting organisations in the town.

Today the 100 plus membership consists of table tennis players from all walks of life, all playing standards, ages and abilities – all happy to come along and play table tennis in whatever form they choose.
