National governing body (NGB)
The British Para Table Tennis Association for People with Disabilities nominates 10 pathway squad athletes to SportsAid each year who are just below its top elite group. This squad represents the future of the game and many of these players will get competitive opportunities at the very top end. All classifications are considered for SportsAid funding.
The nomination process
SportsAid only supports unfunded athletes who are nominated by their sport's national governing body. This ensures the right athletes get the right help at the right time - enhancing the sports' talent development programmes rather than duplicating them. Nominations take place every autumn.
You should contact your sport about whether you meet the criteria for the next round of SportsAid awards. Meeting the nomination criteria does not necessarily guarantee a SportsAid award because the charity can only distribute what it has fundraised.
