Ping Pong Parlour
Opening Hours: 10am-3pm
Marketgate Shopping Centre is delighted to have teamed up with the Ping! and Loop team at Table Tennis England, the sport’s National Governing Body, to bring this exciting project to life. Ping Pong Parlours have already opened up in over 30 other shopping centres nationwide and form part of Table Tennis England’s vision to inspire people to get active and lead happier, healthier lifestyles by introducing table tennis into unexpected, non-traditional places.
Located next to Bodycare, the Ping Pong Parlour will be open between 10am and 3pm daily, offering families the perfect free activity to take part in this summer. Everyone is welcome to drop in to play on one of the 3 table tennis tables in the parlour which was proven to be a hit last year, attracting excited and intrigued visitors to the centre. To join in the fun, simply grab a bat and play – absolutely free of charge!
Other initiatives delivered by Table Tennis England helping to achieve this, include Ping!, the public street ping pong festival which bounces into over 20 towns and cities every summer, Loop which creates opportunities for workplaces, sports clubs and universities to introduce table tennis, and Ping in the Community which provides opportunities for community organisations to kickstart table tennis.
