100 years of English Table Tennis

26th Jul 2022  Dave

Table Tennis England are the governing body of table tennis in England, responsible for representing, co-ordinating, administering, marketing and developing the sport.


To celebrate the centenary year of Table Tennis England (formally English Table Tennis Association), Bluegreen was asked to produce a coffee-table style pictorial history book of the sport over the last 100 years.


The 196-page A4, case-bound book, gives a visual history of the sport, decade-by-decade over the last 100 years.

Featuring a foreword by former English number one and Olympian, Matthew Syed, the publication recognises key players and those involved in the sport overall - both past and present.


"It was a joy to work with Bluegreen on such a key project. They very quickly found the right look, striking a perfect balance between an engaging, modern design and the gravitas which a centenary project has to reflect. They were very responsive and accommodating to our requests and edits. The result is a book which has been acclaimed by people of all ages, in every area of our sport."

Paul Stimpson, Senior Communications Officer, Table Tennis England

With several hundred photographs spanning the last 10 decades, each supported by an accompanying caption naming and describing the faces and events, the book really does bring to life the history of table tennis in England.


From amateur and community level events and schemes, right through to those involved at Olympic level, the publication spans a huge range of interest across the sport.


The book features stunning action images, archived historical photographs and candid 'behind-the-scenes' shots, showing how the sport has developed over the years.


A full set of appendices list governing body officers, honorary life members and vice presidents, through to awards and honours winners, senior national champions, and England senior internationals - giving a complete who's who in English table tennis.


Bluegreen was pleased to be asked to work on such a prestigious and key piece of the sport's history.
