Meet the Committee

Our Club is a Members Club run by an elected Management Committee which meets on a regular basis to control finances and review progress on any issue relating to social and competitive playing of the game of Table Tennis. This Committee is elected annually by members at the club's Annual General Meeting. At the heart of the Club Constitution is a strictly enforced policy of equality for all regardless of age, gender or ability. Copies of the Club’s Constitution are available from the Club Secretary on request, or download from this site. The consitution was ammended slightly at the 2015 AGM.
To contact any member of the Committee please click on the "Contact Us" link and send a message and we will get back to you.
Please find below details of our Management Committee and a brief profile of each member.
Darran Leete: Chairman and Coaching Officer.
I have been playing table tennis since 1977 when I was ten. I started playing at Huntingtower School and was coached by John Mapletoft. I played for Arbons in the Grantham League, and I still play for their one remaining side (Traitor!). I have been coaching now since 2005.

Cathy Steeples: Secretary and Volunteer Coordinator.

I started playing table tennis at the age of 9 as a pupil at Cliffedale School and have been involved in CCTTC since it was founded in 1997. As a junior player, I represented my club at different levels, my school and the county playing in the top divisions. I then turned my attention to coaching and gained my qualification as a UKCC level 2 coach. I am also a County Umpire, a Level 2 Tournament Organiser and a Tournament Referee. I assist in the day to day running of the club and with the management of the club too. I also organise the Herbert Pacey Memorial Tournament for primary schools each year and any club tournaments that the club has. 

Hannah Winfield: Treasurer.
I started playing table tennis when I was 8 years old at Cliffedale Primary School. As a junior player I represented Cliffedale school and was part of the Cliffedale team that won the ESTTA school championships. I also represented the Cliffedale Chandlers and Lincolnshire in various tournaments all over the country. Now as a senior player I represent the club in Women's British League and in the Grantham League. As well as playing, I am also a UKCC Level 1 coach and thoroughly enjoy helping out at different sessions and tournaments. I'm now looking forward to getting more involved in the club as the new treasurer!

Position Vacant: Development Officer.

Peter May: President.

I became involved in table tennis in 1977 as my children were both playing. I have been an active member of the Grantham and District Table Tennis League for many years including being Chairman and now President. During my time as Chairman I played a major part in the creation of the Table Tennis Centre at the Meres. I still play a little table tennis, assist with coaching, however my main involvement is now as an umpire. I have been umpiring since 1988 and I am now an International Umpire.

Karl Robinson: Press and Publicity Officer.

I got involved in Cliffedale Chandlers due to my eldest playing Table Tennis and now my youngest plays as well, so my free time was spent at the Meres at training sessions so I thought I might as well use my time doing something constructive, hence the role I'm doing for the club. It was also a great opportunity to meet new people from other parts of country, to think it all started because I was invited to sit in on a committee meeting. (I thought press gangs had been outlawed) lol. I am hoping to do a level one coaching course in the near future even though I can't hit a ball to save my life. 
Position Vacant: Fundraiser. 

Alex Mercer: Social Events Organiser.

I have been playing table tennis since I was 10 years old, I represented the club and played National Cadet and Junior League. After my Junior playing days, I turned to coaching and umpiring. I am a UKCC Level 2 coach and assist with training sessions as well as organising training days for our Natonal Cadet and Junior League players. I am currently the youngest person within England to pass the National Umpires exam in 2008 and am now an International Umpire. I have umpired at many tournaments which include those locally, nationally and internationally. I went to the Youth Olympic Games in China, the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the Polish Open.
