Bridgeport (BCTTA) Table Tennis Club

We were excited to visit the Bridgeport Table Tennis Club. It was the last remaining club close to Vancouver we had not yet checked out and reviewed. We stopped by on a chilly rainy winter day in late 2023 and discovered a rather cold venue, figuratively and literally. Only two or three of the dozen or so tables were occupied and the under-heated club seemed devoid of energy. Had we arrived at a bad time? We will never know. The unfriendly owner seemed uneasy, our visit was short, we did not play, and taking photos during our quick tour was verboten. We concluded that Bridgeport Table Tennis Club was not particularly friendly towards looky-loos like us.

KK’s Table Tennis Club

Ken Kwang is a table tennis entrepreneur of the highest order, able to mould and shape a table tennis club out of any available space. KK’s latest iteration at 1136 Queens Avenue in New Westminster is a fine example of his ability to adapt. KK’s is a bit like a makeshift PingPod with small to medium and one large table tennis courts in rooms that would otherwise be offices above an automotive business in an industrial area of town next to the Fraser.

The Church Table Tennis Club

What began as a rumour of a table tennis club situated in a church turned out to be a holy grail of a discovery for table tennis fans aching for the perfect place to play. We visited on December 1 and did not expect the level of ping pong perfection we found. The church offered a trinity of perfect conditions: great lighting, great floors and plenty of space around each table. Beyond these features the church based-club was open relatively long hours and charged a pittance of a drop-in fee at $6 per three hours!

At Paul’s Table Tennis Training Academy at the River Club (near No. 5 Road and Steveston Highway) he shares his deep knowledge of the sport with players of all levels eager to improve their game. Equipped with my shoes and racquet, I dropped by on August 17th to meet Paul, check out his new training academy, hit a few balls, and maybe pick up a few pointers.

Cosports Table Tennis Club

When Raymond Li’s Cosports multi-sport complex opened its doors for the first time in 2022, it instantly became the best table tennis venue in the province, and for good reasons. In addition to badminton courts, Cosports boasts 10+ table tennis courts under bright lights in a large gym with IFFT-approved flooring designed specifically for table tennis. The equipment is top-notch, the courts are spacious, and there are changing rooms and showers. It’s open from 10am to 10pm every day. Sure, it’s not in Vancouver but we sure do wish it was. It’s absolutely worth a visit!

VTTC – Vancouver Table Tennis Club

The Vancouver Table Tennis Club (VTTC) bills itself as “one of the best table tennis clubs in the Greater Vancouver area”. This is true with respect to the quality of play. There are some very good players here. The VTTC has 8 tables, a wood floor, adequate lighting, the club owners are really nice, but because this club is so busy, playing sessions are limited to 20 minutes. Wait times are often lengthy. A good but very crowded club.

GVTTC – Greater Vancouver Table Tennis Club

The GVTTC or Greater Vancouver Table Tennis Club is technically in Burnaby but since there are so few clubs in Vancouver, we felt this venue at Hastings Street and Sperling Avenue should be included. The club, founded in 2019 by Wilson Peng Zhang who is also the head coach, bills itself as “Neighbourhood Table Tennis Club” and it seems to be an accurate claim.

Kits Beach Table

The Vancouver Rotary Club recently unveiled a ping pong table at Kits Beach. Situated behind the buildings along the main promenade of the beach, surrounded by trees and grass, the ping pong table itself is great. It’s got a beautifully finished aggregate concrete top yielding a superb bounce, a fine art-quality metal net, a sturdy, immovable concrete base…but there’s real danger underfoot, literally.
