If you’re involved in a club or society at any university then you’ll know just how much socials matter to your members. But if you want your socials to stand out from the crowd, to prove more memorable than your average pub crawl, then you need to know about the special offers that Cardiff City Table Tennis Club have just launched to help you provide a unique, inexpensive and potentially hilarious social experience.

Table tennis is a sport that virtually anyone can play up and play and Cardiff students in Cathays and Roath are lucky enough to have Wales’ only full-time, dedicated table tennis centre right on their doorsteps.

If you want to give your members a social they won’t forget, that’s quick and easy for you to organise and for your members to attend, and to get all this at a special discount rate, then you need to be reading on.

Before we tell you all that, a quick side note for you if your group’s get-togethers tend to get a bit boozy.

Did you know that many student union constitutions insist that all union-affiliated societies must provide at least one non-alcoholic social per year for its members? Cardiff University’s Union certainly do, and they also include the number of non-alcoholic socials a club or society provides as a part of the criteria for any group looking to gain more funding from the university. Check with your union to see if similar rules apply to you. But if they do, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

If you would like to book out the club for your society then we have several options for you;

Club Hire Only- £20 per hour.

  • Exclusive use of the club and all seven professional-standard tables.
  • Free bat and ball hire.

Society Coaching Session- £40 per hour.

  • Exclusive use of the club and all seven professional-standard tables.
  • Free bat and ball hire.
  • International-standard table tennis coach to arrange exercises, providing pointers and advice.
  • Games arranged between your members.

Society Tournament- £40 per hour.

  • Exclusive use of the club and all seven professional-standard tables.
  • Free bat and ball hire.
  • Professional table tennis coach to organise, adjudicate and over-see a tournament between your society’s members.
  • Certificates for all participants and trophies for the winners.

Alternatively, if your society doesn’t need exclusive use of the club then you would be more than welcome to bring your troop down to one of our casual ‘Pay as you Play’ sessions. These sessions are available at a discounted society-member rate of £2 per person per hour. They run from 2-5 every weekday, as well as 5-8:30 Tuesday, 7-9 Thursday and Friday and 10-1 Saturday.

If you or anyone you know would like to take advantage of these offers, or if you’d like more information, then please get in touch with the club by emailing
