The Gold Coast Table Tennis Association (GCTTA) was formed in 1967. The club commenced fixture competitions immediately using the homes of various players as venues. This very social approach to competition saw supper regularly provided at the end of each night's competition.
Eventually it was decided to rent a hall, and 5 tables were purchased from Brisbane Table Tennis Association for the princely sum of $20 each, which were paid of at $5 per week. The club affiliated with Table Tennis Queensland as an associate club of Brisbane Table Tennis Association (BTTA), and with the support of BTTA, the Gold Coast Bulletin and South Coast Dairy, the early success of the club was assured.
Some of the early features of GCTTA included Thursday night ladies only fixtures, and Saturday afternoon Juniors only competitions (which peaked at 150 competitors). The club has many long serving members including Barry and Agnes Herbertson.
The club has operated from various rented accommodation around the northern end of the Gold Coast, but in 1992, with the provision of land and an interest free loan from the Gold Coast City Council, the club was able to set up a permanent residence at our present location in Herbertson Drive, Molendinar.
Throughout the highs and lows of our sport, Gold Coast Table Tennis has always had success with our playing achievements, with Junior, Senior, and Veterans competitors reaching state and national rankings.
