Welcome to our web site!

  An Association styled “THE SALEM DISTRICT TABLE TENNIS ASSOCIATION” of elite clubs of Salem was formed during  60s to cater the needs of lovers of game of Table Tennis of the then larger Salem District i.e, large area covering present district of Salem, Dharmapuri, Namakkal, Krishnagiri and functioning at YMCA, Bretts Road, Salem.  The primary object of the Association was to improve the standard of the game among all age groups.  Clubs attached to industries, like Mettur Chemicals, Chemplast at Mettur and India Cements at Sankagiri were the main contributors to thegame along with non-industry oriented lone club of YMCA at Salem.

 

During 70s Dalmia Recreation of Dalmia Magnesite joined the association and a new turn given to the activities of the SDTTA. Lot of National & State level tournaments conducted in Salem, Mettur and Sankagiri which has given boost to the game, the players and lovers and Table Tennis.

 

Talented & leading players form various parts of our country were brought to Salem for Participating in National Level tournaments by which our youngsters learnt lot about the art of playing different styles the game. During this period Inter-District Table Tennis tournament was organized first time in Mettur when many districts participated in the tournament.

 

We passed thro some dull years when the District got further divided into Namakkal and Salem when virtually India Cement Recreation Club got affiliated to Namakkal District. Association and lot of players left Salem and there was a general slackness among players.

 

Currently lot of schools in Salem provided infrastructure for Table Tennis and young boys & girls started showing keen interest in this game.  Some talented players like Mr. A.S.Kannabiran, Mr. A.S.Jayakrishnan, and Mr. S.Obuli Shankar have started giving coaching to many school children and through them the Salem boys & girls are now shining and have achived new heights both in State & All India level. Coaching camps are being regularly conducted YMCA and by Kannabiran, Jayakrishnan where more and more young boys and girls take strenuous training.

 

There is good opportunity for Salemites to achieve new heights if Association, Players, Coachers and parents work together in the coming days.
