It is not completely clear when Britannia was formed, but certainly by 1955 under its current name, although possibly 1937-1940 under another guise.However, by 1970 Britannia had grown sufficiently to move into purpose built facilities at our current home, the Dome. We are the largest table tennis club in the Ipswich area, offering a coaching and development programme for young players, and organised social, league and tournament play for every standard and age group. We remain accredited as a Table Tennis England 4 Star Premier Club with Clubmark accreditation, both of which demonstrate our commitment to providing a safe and inclusive environment for the enjoyment and participation in Table Tennis for all.
For anyone who wants to know more about the history of the club, longstanding player, committee member and maintenance person Mick Talbot has compiled this document on the subject. Carefully researched and put together, it is well worth a read - there is also a hard copy at the Dome.
We are members of the Ipswich and District Table Tennis League (IDTTL) with teams in every division. For more about IDTTL click to visit their excellent website. If you are new to the area and looking for somewhere to play, practice or learn, either IDTTL or Britannia will be pleased to advise.
For more information about the club and our activities please browse this site or contact us with any questions you have. Better still, come down to the Dome and join in our regular sessions! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Sponsorship of Britannia Table Tennis Club
Britannia has over 150 members, with at least as many more players visiting for local league matches against our teams, and for the regional or invitational tournaments hosted by us. In addition, our Junior coaching programme brings in many parents and other family members. Sponsors can reach all of these potential customers with any of the following methods:
- prominent and large signage at the Dome
- prominent text and graphics on this website
- details about our club and its community oriented outlook on your website
- providing sponsored trophies for our many tournaments
- permanent recognition for equipment provided to the club
plus other ideas if you have them!
We are looking for a main sponsor of the club, and secondary sponsorship opportunities are also available from as little as £250 per year.
For more details please email the club or speak to Colin Watts or Martin Tomes at the Dome. We look forward to helping you for helping us.
