CERN used to have a tradition of table tennis activities at CERN. For some reason, at the beginning of the 1980’s, the CERN Table Tennis club merged with the Meyrin Table Tennis club, a member of the Association Genevoise de Tennis de Table (AGTT). Therefore, if you want to practice table tennis, you may join the CERN Table Tennis Club, and play at the Meyrin Club.

At the Club, you will find partners at all levels, from beginners to Swiss National League A. There are also possibilities of taking lessons, and we are arranging to have a coach available on Friday evenings (18:00–20:00). At present there are more than 40 CERN members who have played table tennis in Meyrin, at least a couple of times. This year, CERN was represented in the Challenge Interentreprise by two teams, and finished 3rd in a group of 6 teams.
