Central Coast Table Tennis History
The Central Coast Table Tennis Association was formed in 1954 from surrounding smaller localised competitions including Brisbane Water, The Entrance and Wyong. It quickly became the major association in the district. Competitions were originally run at the Sea Breeze café in Umina Beach and over the years has moved from the East Gosford Progress Hall, the sports hall at Henry Kendall High School and is currently located at the Niagara Park Stadium (formerly known as the Central Coast Youth Club). On different occasions games have been played at venues such as the Gosford Packing House, Bullions Boat Shed, Ettalong, Kariong Boys Home and Baker Park Tennis complex at Wyong.
The association covers both the Gosford and Wyong shires and currently has over 160 members. Competition has grown to four grades with the association having 24 international standard tables. The association plays on Thursday nights and holds three competitions a year plus a closed championship.
The association has hosted the NSW Country Championships and the NSW City versus Country tournaments, the 2010 NSW Open and the 2010 Australian Open.
