Players from the Dereham and District Table Tennis League are digging deep to boost Sport Relief.

The league has organised a 24-hour ping pong-athon at Yaxham Village Hall starting at 5pm on Friday, March 18, and running until the same time the following day.

The event has been organised by Paul Phillips, who plays for Yaxham, and the aim is to keep play going constantly on at least one of three tables which will be in use.

Paul, who plans to play the whole 24 hours himself, said: “People are doing all kinds of things for Sport Relief, but no one seems to be doing table tennis so I thought we would.

“There are more youngsters getting into the game and I thought it would be nice to do something to give it exposure.”
