Every year the Ping! project attracts hundreds of thousands of people to play on the outdoor public tables, and this summer will be no exception with lockdown measures easing and indoor venues continuing to be out of bounds.

However as the advice is not to share equipment; this summer the usual supply of ‘free to use’ bats and balls placed on the tables sadly won’t be there.

To bridge this gap, Table Tennis England is offering members of the public the opportunity to purchase quality Cornilleau bats and balls sets – ideal for beginners or casual players – at a low cost for a limited time only. With their own equipment, the public will be able to play at every opportunity this summer and beyond!

Also available are Home TT Packs, which include a retractable net to convert the home dining table.

Please note the sets are restricted to one per household and are not available to organisations.

For more information, and to purchase the equipment, visit the Ping! website.
