European flag

The European TT Union (ETTU) is the only authority recognised by the International Table Tennis Federation for governing and developing table tennis in Europe.

With more than 4 million people playing competitive table tennis in the territory controlled by the ETTU, and with 57 Member Associations, the ETTU is the largest of the 6 Continental Table Tennis Federations recognised by the ITTF.

If you're looking for European table tennis clubs, I have some great resources for you.

Firstly, I have a list of table tennis clubs in Europe which have been submitted by visitors to my web site.

You can view the list right here.

And if you belong to a table tennis club in Europe yourself, why not add YOUR CLUB to the list ... it's really easy to do.

Note: Details about the United Kingdom can be found here.

How this site is financed

AllAboutTableTennis.com (AATT) is completely free to use.

However, it's run by one person only (Martin Hughes) and has high running costs that need to be paid for.

This web site receives thousands of visitors every day and therefore, to keep it completely free to use, advertising and affiliate links appear on this web site.

However, these adverts and affiliate links do not influence the advice and recommendations given on this web site.

My intention has always been to give you the best possible information, advice and recommendations, based on my 48+ years involvement in the sport.

Advertising

Adverts appear automatically on my site, provided by third parties, and are not directly controlled by me.

When you click on an advert, it's tracked to AATT and will generate a small payment to me.

Affiliate links*

Affiliate links are links to other web sites who sell related table tennis products.

These work in the same way as normal links, but when you click on it, the link is tracked to AATT and, if you make a purchase, may generate a small payment to me.

They do not cost you anything to use, and any products you choose to buy will not cost you any more than if you went directly to that web site.

These are principally links to Amazon, Megaspin and Bribar, but may include others from time to time.

These links are identified by having an asterisk (*) by its side.

AATT cannot identify any user who clicks on an advert or affiliate link.
