Cross Channel Table Tennis at Dover Leisure Centre

Dover Sports Centre is delighted to announce that we will be hosting the 2018 annual table tennis match between Dover and Calais on Saturday June 9th.

27 players from France will be making the journey to match their skills against their counterparts from the Dover Table Tennis Association. This annual fixture has been part of the Dover sports scene for over 20 years, having previously been part of the annual festival of sport. Spectators are welcome to view the event which will take place in the main sports hall with a presentation in the upstairs hospitality area afterwards. Players of all ages and abilities will be taking part.

Dover’s captain, Kevin Coleman, said “we are so pleased that the table tennis match was able to go ahead again this year despite the cancellation of the other events. We have always enjoyed a wonderful relationship with our French friends and we simply couldn’t bear the idea of missing out of such an enjoyable sporting tradition. We thank Dover Sports Centre for their support and enthusiasm.”
