Halton Table Tennis Club was only founded in 1999 when the new table tennis facility was opened at the Halton Stadium, Lowerhouse Lane, Widnes.
Sport England Lottery grant provided £2.31 million pounds towards the new West Stand, which was for community use and for the Halton Regional Table Tennis Centre. Halton was identified as a location for a regional centre in the Focus Sport plan of 1992. Halton Table Tennis League formed a partnership with Halton Borough Council to develop the project and form Halton Table Tennis Forum.
A development plan was produced for table tennis in the Borough from playground to podium; the plan included schools development from primary through to college; sponsorship of National competitions and attracting top players through the promotion of International England matches, National events and entering competitions.
