Ping comes to Kensington!

 Ping! is an innovative three year street ping pong project which provides people with opportunities to play social and competitive table tennis, free of charge.

The aim is to get as many people as possible across the whole of the UK playing – to bring about a sense of community spirit and get more people playing sport in the run up to the Olympics.

Ping! sees a month of activity and tables popping up in unusual and remarkable places.  Marked ‘Stop and Play’, the tables are up  for all to enjoy. Bats and balls are supplied: to join in the fun just borrow a bat from the side of the table!  As well as free-play, each ping-pong table features a varied programme of master-classes, competitions and free to join activities.

During the next month, you may see the tables, and people playing out and about in Liverpool including in Queen’s Square, on Bold Street and inside shopping centres! –there will also be one outside the Jubilee Sports Bank, in Kensington!

The project is being launched in town today and the table will be at our sports centre from early next week.

Pop over and have a go!
