About the CTTC

History of the CTTC

“We’ve probably got one of the longest running leagues in the United States” said Jim Fulks,secretary/treasurer of the Club, speaking with The Charleston Daily Mail in 1996. Fulks recalls that the Club was formed in the 1930’s in the garage of Bill Warner.

Fulks, owner of the South Charleston Adjustment Bureau, joined in l948 and has served several terms as president. He has seen the Club grow with many current members not even born when the organization was formed.

The North Charleston Recreation Center became home for the Club and has remained so for over fifty years. Several West Virginia champions have come from Club ranks and many nationally ranked players have played here either as members or participants in various tournaments.

The Club now launches into a new era, looking for continued growth and promotion of the great game of table tennis.

Our Mission

The objective of the Club is to promote fellowship and good sportsmanship through competitive table tennis and to promote the game itself in the region for all people.
