Birmingham Academy Teams - 2019/20 Season
(Form Below If You Wish To Skip)
If you can keep the ball on the table a little bit, you have a chance. However, the deadline for entering Academy teams is fast approaching; 5th September 2019. Our table tennis season starts in September and ends before the Summer.
NCL - National Cadet League
NCL is an event that is regionalised across England. It provides an opportunity for children under 15 to compete against other clubs. Ranking points can also be obtained and it is a vital stepping stone in order to progress in the sport. This event will be played over 4 Sunday's at Wood Green Academy, Wednesbury, West Midlands.
NJL - National Junior League
NJL is the delievered in much the same way as NCL and is for children under 18 years of age. This event will be played over 4 Saturday's at Wood Green Academy, Wednesbury, West Midlands.
JBL - Junior British League
JBL is for the best juniors in England. It is a stepping stone from NJL to high/elite performance. To qualify for this, your ranking points need to be relatively high; entering plenty of national events is the way to qualify for this. This event will be played over 2 weekends at the national Velodrome in Derby. Eli Baraty & others will be joining forces on this one!
Local League - a must for all players hoping to improve. Venues across Birmingham facilitate this league. A car is an advantage. Simple to understand; home and away fixtures like in a football league. Games commence 7.30pm and finish around 10.30pm! Three players are in each team and there are currently 5 divisions across the city. All clubs have match nights ranging from Monday to Thursday.
