Later on, in 1990, the name was changed again to Le Cres-Montpellier TT then in 1992 it was changed to Montpellier-Le CresTT(MCTT). Its current name, Montpellier Table Tennis Club, was given in 1994 when MCTT and the Table Tennis Club of Montpellier merged.

Montpellier partnered with Languedoc Roussillon League and opened a training center for the youth at the beginning of the school year in 2009.

B75 International Table Tennis Club   Located in Hirtshals, Denmark, B75 International Table Tennis Club is a welcoming club for all table tennis enthusiasts. It greatly acknowledges and appreciates sincere effort regardless of the individual’s talent or level. They started the club in 1975. One of the best table tennis clubs in Europe was initially located in the basement of Ulvkærskolen, which had a stone floor at that time. Fortunately, lady luck smiled upon them, and in 2015, they made a center in a city with only 6000 occupants. It has since been conspicuous on the world map. It provides a conducive and unique environment for training, ensuring that players’ needs are met without leaving any stone unturned. They created an environment, bearing in mind the idea of a folk high school, where there is provision for development both personally and professionally. This is one of the reasons why many nations choose Hirtshals. For instance, in North Jutland, children are highly motivated to chase their passion and nurture their abilities to the highest possible level in table tennis. Most importantly, they are given a chance to do so. Teams The club has both Danish players and foreign ones. There are professional teams for men and women. The men’s first team has occasionally won in the Danish Championship for the teams, bringing pride to its club. Some of the male players include Luke Savill, Johan Barius, and Peter Svenningsen. The female players are Xenia Rindom, Julia Fredrickson, and PipalukBechVesselhat, just to mention a few. Training and Timetable All training is done in the HirtshalsIdrætscenter. Players of all levels are involved in home matches and daily training too. The club boasts of perfect training equipment which players are at liberty to borrow, such as balls and bats. Not to mention the availability of a large parking lot for ample parking space in front of the Hirtshals sports center and a small parking lot of the multi-hall.

Other Activities B75 table tennis club has a motor table tennis play program for children. Generally, children come to play with explosive energy. Therefore in most cases, a great amount of time is spent on running after the ball and picking it. This can cause frustration to the child, making them feel stuck. Table tennis can be difficult for beginners. Thus, the motor games join the demanding motor moves that table tennis requires with the pleasure of playing. An advantage of motor table tennis play is that it introduces children to the game as soon as they are ripe for the motor.
