Table Tennis Club Amstelveen
Table Tennis Club (TTV) Amstelveen was established in 1947 and is a member of the Dutch Table Tennis Association (NTTB). We currently have about 15 teams ( all 3-5 players each) participating in the national, district and junior leagues. In total, including recreational players, our club has over 100 members which makes TTV Amstelveen a semi-large club in the Amsterdam area. TTV Amstelveen has members starting at the age of six and has some members who have reached the respectable age of 80+. So we dare to say that table tennis is a sport you can play and enjoy your whole life.
What is our goal?
Our main goal is to have our members enjoy playing table tennis! We offer a wide range of playing opportunities to enter training sessions, free play or participate in league matches.
We believe that good training and coaching, especially when you start playing table tennis, is essential in order to develop your game and to allow you to progress to your chosen level. Table tennis is a complex sport, particularly as you improve in the game. It has been often described as “Chess with a ball” due to the complexities of spin, speed and movement. We have experienced trainers who provide the coaching sessions for both juniors and seniors.

Everyone can become a member of our club! We have a diverse club with members of different nationalities, age and level of play. Table tennis is an immensely enjoyable sport; it will keep you fit, keep your reflexes sharp and all you need is a table tennis bat and sport shoes.

We invite you to visit us, see the club, taste the atmosphere and play some table tennis if you want.
