Thiston Club for many years and this video demonstrates what we do currently and the history of Table Tennis too:

North Merchiston Club offers Table Tennis to Beginners, Juniors, Adults and Seniors. North Merchiston Table Tennis Club has teams in Edinburgh and Lothian Table Tennis league and one team in Scottish National League. We have coaching sessions for adults and children and social sessions for those who want to play at a more relaxed pace. The Club has capacity for 8-10 table tennis tables in 3 separate halls and is now the proud owner of 7 new Butterfly tables.

 

We relaunched and improved Table Tennis at the club in July 2015, and this page reflects the new fees and session details.

A very exciting and fiercely contested season for the E& LTTL Premier

title this season between North Merchiston 1 and Murrayfield 1 which

climaxed on the last night of the season.

North Merchiston 1 managed to beat Murrayfield 1 in the first half of

the season 6-4. Murrayfield 1 managed to reverse that result in the

second half of the season, so all to play for! North Merchiston 1

slipped up dropping a valuable point against West Lothian 1 who

finished 4th with a 5-5 draw away from home. Unexpectedly Murrayfield

1 drew with Edinburgh International 1 away from home which left both

teams on the same points total going into the last match of the season

as both teams managed to win all their respective matches throughout

the season.

North Merchiston 1 managed to comprehensively defeat West Lothian 1,

8-2 at home. Murrayfield 1 had a tricky fixture away from home against

Edinburgh Sports Club 1 who finished 3rd in the division which they

needed to win. Murrayfield 1 went 5-3 up in the match looking like

they would lift the title for the 3rd season in a row however a huge

fight back from Edinburgh Sports Club 1 winning the last two matches

secured a 5-5 draw in a very tightly contested match meaning that

North Merchiston 1 became E&LTTL Premier League Champions. The team of

Gillian Edwards, Stewart Armitage and Colin Weir lifted the title.

In addition to this achievement, Gillian Edwards managed to win the

individual averages with a 94.4% win rate
