Over the past several years the BTTA Committee has overseen key re-development projects. Exciting additions like the new sports flooring, renovated bathrooms, improved lighting, and better access (such as the lift and doors) has made the Brisbane Table Tennis Centre a hub for this sport in Brisbane.
Read on for the reno updates...

As you can see in the photo, the reno project is on-going.
The renovation of the Brisbane Table Tennis kitchen has been delayed due to the pandemic.
But the project is continuing.
It is hoped that the new kitchen will be ready for the this year's Brisbane Open.
Major upgrade planned for 2022.
BTTA is delighted to announce that we have been granted $26,000 from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund to upgrade the centre kitchen.
This grant together with an additional grant from Table Tennis Australia of $3,000 will allow us to significantly upgrade the current kitchen which is more or less the original 1981 installation.
Building on the momentum from previous upgrades, the re-generation of the Brisbane Table Tennis Centre continues this year.
Major upgrades were undertaken in 2019.
This year, with the assistance of the Brisbane City Council, the BTTA will refurbish
Major Re-Development Works at Brisbane Table Tennis
We will also be installing a 3 level lift. The lift will offer club members and guests 3 levels:
One of the sets of steps down from the Cafe Level to the Court level will also be restricted to be disabled player friendly. We will be adding a hand-rail and extra treads.
The works will be carried out between April and July.
Please be patient as players. While we do not anticipate closing the centre but their may be some inconvenience, particularly during Monday to Friday business hours.
Since these are major re-development works we have had to find a new venue for the Table Tennis Veterans competition. Thank you to Wynnum Table Tennis club for stepping up and helping out for the Veterans 2019 Tournament.
We look forward to hosting even more tournaments, especial tournaments for para athletics in the future.
Major works were undertaken in 2018.
The highly anticipated upgrade of the Brisbane Table Tennis Centre's flooring is about to commence thanks to a Brisbane City Council grant and the Commonwealth Games Legacy and the dedication of a group of volunteers. The works are the culmination of two years of effort towards this project.
Club member, John Swinbourne has been leading the project to upgrade the floor. See attached for his summary of the project to date.
The installation will roll-over over several weeks. We ask for club members and guests to be patient while the work is being done as there may be some disruption to regular access to the courts.
The club, however, will not be closed using the installation as the work will be staggered.
These new works build on the momentum generated from previous upgrades. The centre has also recently upgraded its lighting and players' lounge area. The goal is to elevate the centre to a world-class table tennis venue.
