Leeside Table Tennis Club provides a place where professional, amateur, and recreational players can gather in a social and competitive environment and participate in the sport of table tennis. Our mission is to promote and grow an enthusiastic base of local table-tennis players and provide a common place to foster that growth.
Leeside TT Club was set up in March 2012 (originally the club was based in Ballincollig Community School). Initially there were ten members, but very quickly word spread and there are now over 50 members.
