The Ping Pong Parlour in Runcorn has ‘gone ballistic’ as shoppers flock to take a turn on the tables – and the local club is playing its part, as listeners to BBC Radio Merseyside heard.

The Parlour is in Halton Shopping City, whose manager Karl Clawley joined BBC presenter Jenny-Lee Summers, alongside Ken Tonge from Halton Table Tennis Club and Mark Allen from the local council.

Karl said the Parlour had been hugely successful since it opened, while Ken spoke about the opportunities that Halton TTC can offer to people who decide they want to play more regularly.
