Our mission statement is:
To assist the re-establishment of table tennis here in the United Kingdom, by inspiring new generations to pick up a bat and eventually challenge the world’s best players.
Our goals are:
To achieve the same world class status for England’s men and women as the men reached in the 1980’s
To find and develop a new generation of young players, who will go on to challenge the best in the world
To support and nurture young coaches, giving them the knowledge and training ot become world class coaches
To educate both students and teachers about table tennis, and play high level games to inspire students to practice and teachers to set up their own clubs
To develop a new primary school table tennis programme and use it while campaigning to the government, and to teach school children hand-eye coordination, quick reactions, balance, concentration and aerobic fitness
To develop a string of national Focus Table Tennis Junior Holiday Courses, aimed at 6-10 year olds during the school holidays
To change the image of table tennis here in the United Kingdom, making it a more popular, “cooler” game
To gain both private sponsorship and government funding for the growth of young table tennis coaches in primary schools
Focus Table Tennis provide us at KCS with inspirational coaches. Their contagious enthusiasm & dedication has dramatically increased the prominence of table tennis at the school which has been exciting especially for our "less sporty" kids. FTT have a great vision for the development of table tennis in schools.

I have to say a HUGE thank you on behalf of everyone here – we had a great time on Monday night and it was in no small part down to you and your fantastic organisation. It was great to have the demonstration from your guys (they definitely put us all to shame) and I thought the format of the night worked really well. The feedback here has been really positive and I will pass on your details to other members of staff who may be interested in using your services.

Zahara loved it! She had a really fun time – and was proud of her certificate saying she came 15th in the tournament ( I didn’t tell her how many were enrolled!) And she got a prize for having improved so much so she was thrilled. In fact I wanted to let you know that I thought the coaches were superb. I met Olav on the first day and I thought his style was really just perfect for the kids – very happy and positive and I could see my daughter really responded to him.

Focus Table Tennis have delivered our network table tennis tournament for the past three years. We have been very happy with the service provided and the professionalism of their staff. Our students have particularly enjoyed the master-classes with the likes of Gavin Rumgay and Darius Knight that have been organised for us by the Focus team.

Many thanks for giving my son, Alexander such a fabulous time at your table tennis course earlier this week at Donhead School. He had a really great time and came out brimming with enthusiasm, much more than I ever expected. So a big thank you ! Happy Christmas to you all,
Alexander's mum, Mum,
I just wanted to drop you a short note, on behalf of SportsAid, to thank you and your athletes for organising such a fantastic demonstration on Thursday. Guests I spoke to loved the power and technique of the players and were captivated to see the action up close! They also loved being able to have a go afterwards too! Thank you again for helping to make the SportsBall such a fantastic success!
