General Information


Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA) is a National Sports Association affiliated to the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) and Sport Singapore (Sport SG).

Sports Excellence


Under the Sports Excellence 2000 scheme, table tennis was selected as one of the 7 core sports in Singapore. With full support from SSC, STTA made tremendous progress. We provide the athletes with the best possible facilities, amenities and environment for developing the sports and to reach their maximum sporting potential. Highly qualified coaches are employed from China to raise the standard of the national squad. Professional sparring partners are also recruited to spar with the national paddlers.

These efforts coupled with the systematic training programmes, enables our national paddlers to deliver exceptional results in the recent years. At the recent London Olympic Games, Feng Tianwei has done Singapore proud by winning the Bronze Medal in the Table Tennis Women's Singles. She has won Singapore's first individual Olympic Medal in 52 years. Feng Tianwei, Li Jiawei and Wang Yuegu have also clinched a second Bronze Medal for Singapore in the Women's Team Event.

Singapore also won the first Olympic SILVER MEDAL in the Women's Team Event at the Beijing Olympic Games.  Our women’s team was crowned the World Champions in the 2010 LIEBHERR World Table Tennis Championships.  The national squad also won medals at major games like SEA Games, Asian Games and the Commonwealth Games.

Youth Development


STTA-PCF Table Tennis Programme

The STTA is committed to its mission: To develop world class table tennis players by identifying, nurturing and motivating aspiring table-tennis talents to become the best that they could be.  The emphasis on youth development at the STTA has never been greater and a key goal for STTA is to identify and groom talented athletes from a very young age.

In 2009, the STTA started the early introduction of table tennis to PAP Community Foundation (PCF) kindergartens.  Currently, the STTA-PCF table tennis programme reaches out to over 1,000 promising children yearly.  

Zone Training Centres

Talented and promising players from the STTA-PCF table tennis programme are invited to join the association’s zone training centres for intensive training.  

The zone training centres are instrumental in strengthening the process of discovering and nurturing young and potential players in a more structured and sustainable manner.  Students with high playing skills would then be selectively sent to the Junior and Youth Team.

Sports Participation


Learn to Play and Continue to Play courses are conducted at the Training Hall at Toa Payoh, Hougang, Pasir Ris and Clementi. Local and overseas training camps are regularly organized for youths during the school holidays. In addition, increasingly more local table tennis tournaments are organised to encourage regular and active participation.

PAssion TT Clubs

The People’s Association and STTA have jointly set up the National Network of PAssion Table Tennis Clubs, a group of table tennis sports interest groups, to widen outreach and deepen engagement with residents through table tennis at the Community Clubs, Residents’ Committees Centres and Neighbourhood Committees.  

The PAssion TT clubs are to engage and to promote community and family bonding amongst residents.  It will also provide opportunities for residents, regardless of gender, race and age, to learn to play table tennis and improve their skills.

The PAssion table tennis clubs are led by volunteer peer leaders and practices are conducted at Community Clubs (CCs) or areas outside the Residents Committee (RC) Centres.  We welcome as many residents to come forward and join the club.  Residents may join to learn and play leisurely or competitively, and even volunteer to be table tennis volunteer peer leaders.

International Involvement


On the international front, STTA is a member of the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), Commonwealth Table Tennis Federation (COMTAB), Asian Table Tennis Union (ATTU) and the South East Asia Table Tennis Association (SEATTA).
