Maties Table Tennis Club is part of the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Although we firstly cater for our students, we welcome any other table tennis player, ranging in experience and age.

We often welcome international students as well as visitors and also have scholars training with us.

The club has been running since 2012 when founder, Jaco de Swardt, moved to Stellenbosch for his studies.

Since then our club has been growning non stop and we are now officially recognised as a club at Stellenbosch University.

We are also running a residence league, specifically for university students, that stretches over 12 weeks during the year and consists of more than 600 players.

Currently we have four players in the Cape Winelands regional team and usually takes a few medals at Intervarsity.

We also participate at other tournaments hosted by nearby clubs and federations as well as bigger tournaments like the South African Championships and USSA's (University Sport South Africa).

Our club's training hub is at the Maties Gymnasium, Stellenbosch, where we have four tables available for training on Mondays and Wednesdays from 19:00 – 21:00.

How this site is financed (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 50+ years involvement in the sport.
