Mark Bates Ltd are proud to announce that they are title sponsors of the 2020 Table Tennis National Championships.

  • This is the beginning of a five year deal with Table Tennis England, covering all Senior, Cadet & Junior and U10-U13 tournaments until the end of the 2023-24 season.

  • We hope through providing this support that we will increase the profile and participation of this great game, getting a new generation involved in this family sport.

  • Our founder and managing director (Mark Bates) is particularly excited about this opportunity. Not only did his children regularly represent their country, but our business currently employs four ex-national champions.

  • The National Championships is the highlight of the competition calendar, featuring elite athletics that will go on to represent their country at the Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo later in the year.

  • This year the Championships will take place between the 28th February and 1st March at The David Ross Sports Village at the University of Nottingham, with the winner being crowned National Champion.

  • The event is being streamed live by the BBC, for those that are interested in following the event.
