Table Tennis England has joined the Youth Sport Trust and Sky Sports to help young people and families up and down the country to engage in a week of virtual sporting challenges.

With young people set to miss out on a school sports day this summer, the Youth Sport Trust’s annual National School Sport Week campaign is being reinvented as National School Sport Week at Home

The week runs from June 20-26 and Table Tennis England provided the Youth Sport Trust access to some TT Kidz resources to give families, communities and schools the chance to capture the fun and enjoyment of table tennis.

Colette Gooding, TT Kidz Programme Lead, said: “We have been delighted to be supporting National School Sport Week at Home. It’s been great to see so many young people getting involved with different activities with their families.”

There is still time to get involved in the week. Click here to take part and receive videos and activity cards to help you plan a series of challenges across the week for family, neighbours, friends or colleagues.

Table Tennis England has created two challenges for young people to try with their families at home. Watch them below – then have a go yourself!
